hands up who is fed up with channel 4's food programmes?
have you seen the adverts for this new "season" of food programmes? are we supposed to think Hugh, Jamie, Heston and Gordon are some sort of greek gods? they're fucking cooks! and the prgrammes look fucking annoying too:
“jamie saves our bacon”. Jamie oliver confronts the pork industry in a bid to rescue british pork production from extinction. Jamie cuts stuff up on live tv. We cower under his ethereal glow. i used to like Jamie but now he is really starting to get on my tits.
“Chickens, Hugh and Tescos too”. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall attempts to change tescos policy on intensively farmed chickens. He obviously fails, but its funny to watch him cry and we all know how much the public love to watch chickens being killed on tv.
“Big Chef Takes on Little Chef”. Heston bloomindale tries to make a menu for liitle chef. Exclamation mark overload. To me its like cock fighting, “lets put these two opposing things against each other and watch”. utterly boring and poitnless.
i like cooking and recipes and what-have-you, but "out there" food programmes get right up my nose. lets hope the credit crunch gets rid of them pretty soon.
