Top Gear on BBC America. I watched it tonight and it was a blend of Car & Driver from PBS and a late night talk show. All done in impeccable British style with wacky British humor.

Last Week's Shouts and Murmurs column: The Cursing Mommy Cooks Italian. (I especially like the part when the paper towel roll catches fire)...
Thing that we are equally intrigued and yet also repulsed by: Food Network Magazine's "Food Porn" centerfold spread of NFL Potato Skins-- yes they created a potato skin topping to represent the hometown of each NFL team. Philadelphia Eagles? Cheesesteak on a potato. New York Jets? Pastrami and Pickle Potato Skins. New Orleans Saints? Muffetella Potato Skins. You get the picture. Pick up your Pepto Bismol now, the Super Bowl is only a few short weeks away.
