My wife and I found the show by accident, partly because it has a misleading title. "The Supersizers" has nothing to do with supersizing food portions today.
The premise of the show is that the two stars (Giles Coren, a restaurant critic in London, and Sue Perkins, a comedienne/actress in London) eat their way through history. Each episode concentrates on a specific time period (the French Revolution, the 50s, Ancient Rome, etc.) and the two stars dress appropriately for the period and eat the foods that were common during those periods. Each episode has experts on the particular period who comment on the dress and food of that time.
Before beginning the food regimen for a particular period, both visit their doctors, who take various tests to use to see how such diets affect them.
We are finding this to be a very highly entertaining, witty and informative show.
Give it shot, see what you think...
