TV DVDs of the Week!

I decided it was time for this blog to get a new recurring segment, so here is the first ever segment of, "TV DVDs of the Week" Basically, most every week, A and I watch some of the many TV shows that we have on DVD (as you can see from the title banner), so I thought, why not blog about them?

Last night, A and I watched one of our favorite shows, Good Eats! Now, I know what you're thinking. "I don't see any Good Eats DVDs in the title banner!" Well, that's true, but the reason is that we have so many of them, that we don't have room for them on our DVD shelf, so we had to put them on a separate shelf (next to my text books). So, last night, A randomly said, "Let's watch Good Eats!" And I replied, "Ok!" So then we took out all the Good Eats DVDs that we have with us (we only have 9 DVDs of 3 episodes each here in college, but we have about 18 other Good Eats DVDs at home, that we just didn't have room for). So after much discussion, we decided to watch the episode "Zen and the Art of Omelet Maintenance" from the "Breakfast Eats 3" DVD. In this very interesting episode, Alton Brown talks about how to make the perfect omelet. Some lessons that he taught were that you should always beat eggs with a fork (not an egg whisk), you should always fry in butter (not oil), and you should make omelets in a rounded pan, so it's easier to flip. Great episode!

Earlier this evening, we popped in another TV DVD to watch. Jon & Kate Plus Ei8ht! Again, I know you're thinking "You don't have Jon & Kate Plus Ei8ht on your DVD banner! Is that on a separate shelf too? Why aren't these other DVDs on your title banner?" Well, no, that one is not on a separate shelf. The Jon & Kate Plus Ei8ht DVD was a gift that I gave A for Chanukkah, and since we got all those new DVDs (remember how I blogged about all those new DVDs I got too?) we never got around to taking a new DVD photo for the banner. But fear not, we'll try to take one soon! Anyway, so we started watching the first few episodes of Jon & Kate Plus Ei8ht". Such a cute show! It's basically a reality show about two parents who had twin girls, and then wanted to try for one more child, but got pregnant with sextuplets (6 babies)! So now, they have 2 6 year old twin girls, and 6 sextuplets (3 boys and 3 girls). We watched the first 3 episodes of the season, "10 Little Pumpkins" (the family goes to a pumpkin patch and each child picks a pumpkin), "Gosselins Go West" (Jon and Kate are invited to speak in California, so they go on a trip with the older twin girls, while the little ones are left with friends), and "Twins Turn 6" (the twins get taken to the American Girl Store in New York for their 6th birthday). The show is very fun to watch, and the kids are very cute. Jon and Kate are always arguing with each other, which is entertaining, but also realistic, as it has to be very stressful to raise 8 children. Whenever I watch this show, it makes me want to have kids really badly! I can't wait to be a father!
