Good Eats Is Back on Netflix! (Also: More Chopped, Iron Chef America, and Buncha Other Food Shows)
The man is back!
Netflix isn't the best when it comes to food programing. There are some great documentaries and the occasional series, but most food content producers are stingy on the online streaming (okay, it's mostly the Food Network that doesn't want to stream everything.)
But hey, now that Nextflix's library has refreshed again, there's some more TV to watch.
The most exciting return is probably Alton Brown's Good Eats. The episodes are correctly labeled this time, although you can still only watch 25. Also from the Food Network, there's another 25-episode collection of Iron Chef America, Chopped and Cutthroat Kitchen available (the first collections are gone though). Of note: Chef Hop of Dos Chinos' Chopped episode is now available (though Jason Quinn's is gone).
Finally, Anthony Bourdain's third(?) television series, and his last with the Travel Channel, The Layover is up. It's a fun series, with Bourdain visiting major American cities for a day and a half and drinking a bunch. Episodes of note? San Francisco is great. Seattle is decent.
Hopefully the Food Network opens up a little more for the next refresh.
