Movie Reviews

Alton is the man.
Sara Webb | Hurricane, WV United States | 09/30/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have always been a devout fan of Good Eats. However, this particular series really communicates Alton Brown's love for the journey in understanding food--how food is both an expression of culture and community, as well as a driving force in maintaining and creating culture and community.

Feasting on Asphalt is filled with a reverence for the every-day people that make this country the terrific, diverse, stock pot that it is. Watch this show, and you will want to get out there on the road, meet some of these people, eat a lot of food, and bask in the wonder of all the stories and communities that must be out there for you to discover. It will also make you think about the micro- and macro-cultures in which you were raised, and make you curious about how the foods and traditions of your family and community came to be.

In an increasingly homogenized world of large chains and Anywhere USA towns, Feasting on Asphalt shows us that hope is not lost. We are still here. We are still eating and cooking and living.

A big thank you to Alton and his dedicated crew."

"I'm so glad to see this released on DVD. I taped it from the Food Network and was just rewatching and remembering how much I enjoyed it. It is very entertaining to watch Alton and his team travel/eat their way across the country. As always I love all the extra info Alton provides. It will be nice to see it without the commercials.

Typical high-quality production from Alton Brown and Co.

"This is a great series for foodies and adventurers. We're long-time fans of Good Eats (our kids quote "Altonisms" endlessly), and we expect the bar to be set pretty high for this new series. In a word, it's great. And really entertaining. Brainy. Thoughtful. Fun. All of the things you hope for when you tear off the shrinkwrap. I think one of the reasons we enjoyed this set so much is that the production values--even as a travelogue--are so good. Although some of the shtick is gimmicky and overdone, it works as entertainment and it draws the viewer into what is unquestionably "Alton's World." A very cool DVD set and, for us, a wise investment we will enjoy over and over again."
Wonderful Series, Terrible Transfer

"This is an awesome Alton Brown series. He artfully combines his love of motorcycling, and travel with food. I too love both. I can only give it 3 stars because of a terrible DVD transfer. Try watching this amazing series on a HDTV. It's horrible and painful and almost criminal as the show was obviously shot in widescreen. They framed and matted the picture for a 4:3 TV. For a 2006 series, ignorance of Anamorphic DVD is pretty much unforgivable. An otherwise beautiful show, spoiled by a cut rate DVD transfer."
