Editor's note: As many of you know, Bravo debuted a new show about the L.A. food scene recently. Since some of us spend our
bravotv.com Sundays Thursdays watching sports instead of reality television (yes, even if it's about food; especially if it's about food), we though we'd ask a writer who writes more about television than about restaurants to cover the series. Read on for her weekly updates.
A bonus episode of Eat Drink Love aired last night, as the show has now moved to Thursday nights because the universe wants us all to relax and watch Homeland on Sunday evenings in a few weeks.
Yesterday's episode was a little light on the type of dramatic conflict one expects from a Bravo show, or just any story in general. Did anything really happen? It was like going to Veggie Grill, getting a side of quinoa pilaf because they're out of the Santa Fe Crispy Chickin' Sandwich, feeling empty and wanting, and driving through In-N-Out Burger on the way home. In this case, In-N-Out was a preview to next week's episode, when the whole group takes a road trip to wine country.
What yesterday's episode did have: a dad, two dates, a confrontation, a sister-to-sister talk, and a break-out comedian.More »
