Ben Bailey asks questions the average person should be able to answer and makes stupid faces into the camera as his passengers struggle to answer them.
2: Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern UItra effete and super watchable, Andrew Zimmern travels the world and eats the planet's most vile local foods. Ironically, the only thing that has yet made him gag has been a fruit.
3: Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations
The world's biggest self-righteous New Jersey asshole travels the world with his arrogant pompadour. He constantly has this disgusted "I just smelled something sour" expression on his face because he knows his viewers are just regular "part of the problem" people. He's not a Bobby Flay type of asshole though; he's a strangely likable sort of asshole.
4: Top Gear I had no idea I got the BBC America channel, and I had never heard of the show. I saw it in the guide a while back and watched it out of boredom. Wicked watchable show. 3 limeys bust each other's balls and go on engine-related adventures. Really well-made, entertaining show - and this from someone who doesn't give a fuck about cars.
5: Three Sheets Host Zane Lamprey doesn't have Zimmern-levels of personality, he's more of a wandering bro-dawg who travels the world drinking local varieties of booze. He doesn't get loaded enough 95% of the time, but it's still better than most of the other shit on. I used to watch it on a channel called MOJO, but that shit the bed. It's on the Fine Living channel now.
These are the good things on television right now.
