"Psych" pineapples remind me of Superman references in "Seinfeld." I appreciate devices like this.

The writing quality is so inconsistent.

Sometimes its gold and then other times it just feels half assed and forced.

Its a fun game to play when watching psych with friends. First to find the pineapple wins (it's always hidden somewhere).

Iron Chef America just keeps getting worse. Their new "twist" I guess is supposed to make it more interesting, but I just think it further contributes to subpar offerings. Now, the first dish always has to be served within 20 minutes and roughly around the 40 minute mark, they bring out a "culinary curveball" that the chefs must incorporate into a dish... either an ingredient or equipment.

I think one of the things that made the original Iron Chef so good (aside from the fact that the Iron Chefs were much much better) was that there was no artificial dish limit that had to be met. The chefs could focus on making one epic dish if they so chose, or many if they preferred. The result is more focused cooking instead of trying to stretch the ingredient across a predetermined number of dishes.

Agreed, but it's a nice antidote to Top Chef.
No matter the drawbacks, the ideas of the chefs are always pretty high end.

Since the culinary curveball actually seems like a genuine "secret ingredient", I don't think it's a bad thing.

Honestly what made the original Iron Chef better to me was just the hilarity with the dubbed voices......and the chairman or whatever taking a huge bite out of the yellow pepper every time.

Jennifer Carpenter tweeted a couple of interesting tidbits yesterday...Dexter will be back in June, and she is "pretty, pretty sure" it will be the last season.

Don't Trust the B was supposed to be new again last night, but it seemed like an early one.

Not sure what is going on with that show. I love it, but now it seems it won't have a very long shelf life anymore.

I'd say the shows that aren't on the big networks (CBS, ABC, FOX, NBC) have been getting better, but the shows on the big 4 are worse than they have been in the past.

I'd concur with that statement. The networks can't compete and offer the freedom that an HBO, Showtime, or AMC offers. But yeah, Golden Age of TV works for me.

Oh yeah, without a doubt. I'm already behind two episodes. Thought it was on hiatus until late January. :oops:
