Okay, I'm loathe to treat any food tv program seriously, but this one really annoys me. I watch it, though, which is even more annoying-like a train wreck I guess.

The not-so-veiled phoniness is what bothers me. If you look at what they get and what they make it's clear the goal is who creates the least disgusting dish. Yet it's presented as good food, which is manipulative in my view.

Aargh! once again torture by Food Network.
