One of my favourite shows... actually my favourite show on television, the show that makes me really really really want to buy cable, the show that I'll go over to my parent's to watch, the show that is the best, is Iron Chef. If you've never seen it, imagine a fast-paced cooking competition complete with sports-like side commentary and a panel of judges. Each episode consists of a challenger facing off against one of the "Iron Chefs." A special ingredient is selected and the two opponents have one hour to prepare the most fabulous dishes they can. It was produced in Japan and now airs on The Food Network in the US dubbed into English. If you have never seen this show, please, make an effort to.
Anyway, just yesterday, the dumb people who produce the show sent a cease and desist order to Iron Chef fan sites telling them to yank their sites. I find this incredibly irritating.
