The Good and Bad of Food on TV

Well the food network and other food broadcasting television shows have definetely spread food culture across America in god and bad ways. Will start with the good.....
Top Chef is great. The viewers get to see some very high skilled professionals cook great food. Season 6 of Top Chef was insanely good and entertaining. The Voltaggio's along with Jenifer Carrol, Kevin Gillespie, and Eli were all extremely talnted chefs. Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations is great. Also, Iron chef America and The Next Iron Chef are great shows where chefs very talented chefs compete against each other.

The Bad...
Semi Home Made. This could probably the worst. She uses canned fruits and vegetables, as well as pre chopped vegdetables. Just cut it your self!!!!
Hell's Kitchen. Gordon Ramsay is an amazing chef, but the show stars cooks that are as talented as my baby sister. The contestants cant cook and it shows American public a bad image of chefs. Not all kitchens are hectic like that, they shouldn't. For example, in Thomas Keller or Eric Ripert's restaurant there is absolutely no yelling and their is a high level of respect for everyone. Recently Eric Ripert had some comments about Hell's Kitchen on his Twitter saying he hated the show.
