America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Country

I love watching these shows. Many of the things they make look delicious. I find Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin-Davison very likable and perfect foils for the reserved nerdiness of Christopher Kimball. I think a lot of their tips and tricks are useful in the kitchen. I love learning the science behind cooking and baking. But...

I have never once made anything I have seen on the show. Why? Because they eventually take all the fun out of cooking by adding so many extra steps and being so damn perfect. I finally realized I like the show as pure entertainment. But as inspiration for cooking? Not a chance. Anyone else feel this way?
