I never before have watched an episode of Phantom Gourmet, but I did for the first time last night. (It was kind of ironic: I was doing an intense hill progam on my exerice bike -- it's been WAY too cold to run -- while watching the PG show on pigging out while watching the Super Bowl.) It struck me as an hour-long commercial. Is that the way it usually is, or was this just their Super Bowl special? Does any chowhound really care what this guy has to say about food?
