    Dynasty (2017)

    PREACH!! Cristal 2.0 is a big ol’ snoozefest and I feel no connection between her and Blake. (Plus, I dig the idea of a new Crystal each season.) I thought he was the spitting image of Stephanie March. I wouldn’t mind ADA Alex Cabot shaking things up in Atlanta.
  2. I tried the three-course prix fixe at Chef David Viana’s (S16) Heirloom Kitchen a couple weeks ago and I still can’t get over it. Hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten! The meal started with a fennel gazpacho amuse; I then selected the ribs (garlic, white balsamic, truffle honey), duck (with crispy artichokes and the best damn falafel I have EVER tasted), and masala chai cake. The restaurant was bright and airy and welcoming, the service was superb, the wine is offered at retail prices, and every last bite was delicious - I left feeling completely satisfied but not stuffed. The price point is a little rich for me to be a regular, but I have every intention of returning once next season’s menu comes out! If you’re in the NJ area, I HIGHLY recommend it!

    I’m from NJ, where fat sandwiches are a Rutgers staple. The demo version was unrealistic - just too many items added for shock value. The samples were more along the line of a true fat sandwich (notice each had two or three of the demo ingredients, not all). I haven’t tried Fat Shack, but I am a former fat sandwich skeptic turned fan. They’re delicious, and sometimes it’s fun to indulge. But OH, did Mark’s enthusiasm irk me after the side-eye he gives other indulgent food products. Methinks he saw the arena potential and his eyes turned into cartoon dollar signs.

    S16.E06: Roaring Munchies

    I’m wondering if the fact that this group had the LCK winner coming back after a group challenge had some effect on the group wanting to band together separate from the newcomer (who was actually a veteran). Like, they just had to work together on the last task, and then, BOOM! New Person crashing the party - I feel like there’s a different dynamic when the LCK winner comes back after an individual challenge where each chef was solely responsible for their dish and they were all directly competing with one another. I know they’re still ultimately opponents even when teamed up, but the extra collaboration and support probably plays with their emotions.

    Season 16 (Kentucky) Last Chance Kitchen

    That happened for me, too (Optimum/Cablevision/Altice/ lwhatever name they use this week)! I had to watch via the Bravo app (on Roku). Luckily, I had it set up from last week because neither of the mini-Restaurant Wars episodes were on the OnDemand when I was watching over that weekend. And there’s still one random episode from a past season showing under Top Chef. I can’t imagine this is such a difficult thing to organize that it needs to be continuously messed up.

    S02.E08: Buck Actually

    I have an inexplicably vivid memory of reading an interview she did with Disney Adventures (mid-90s) to promote “Let’s Go Bang”... But since her music career is so rarely referenced, a part of me always wondered if I dreamt the article. I wasnt a fan of Buck 1.0, so this episode wasn’t my favorite. But I’m definitely digging the season overall.

    S27.E10: Week 8: Semi-Finals

    Milo is still my favorite to win, but I am officially a Keo/Evanna convert. Their dances were beautiful and I wanted to hug him when he got all choked up!

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Hello! 4/5 for Week 8. (It’s 4 1/2 when I choose to split hairs - my bruised ego requests it- since I did get one of the two rivers correct.)

    I’m pretty sure they were referencing a chain like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick's_Last_Resort

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Hello! ;) You can join me anytime! I can’t believe I let myself get so far behind - I’ve been avoiding the threads so I wouldn’t accidentally see an answer, and after much binge/mingling, I’ve finally caught up. My score is clear evidence of the current burnout: Week 5: 3/5; Week 6: 3/5; Week 7: 0/5 Full disclosure, I did get so far as “Is it whatever the creature is in Beowulf?” But since my 11th grade English class was the only one in the school that didn’t read it, I didn’t even realize I had heard the name before. Whoops! (Methinks this weekend will be reserved for recharging my brain.)

    Return to Bravo: Anticipation and Fears

    The podcast is Really Famous, hosted by Kara Mayer Robinson. Most of her interviews are good, but Tim’s is a standout.
