If Jubbling Made A TV Show It Would Be Like Norway’s 12-Hour Prime Time Show About A Fireplace.

Norway Public Television 12-Hour Fireplace Show With Lars MyttingProduction value, production value, production value! Hard to beat Norwegian public television’s programming – especially when it’s only showing a burning fireplace for 12 straight hours with firewood expert Lars Mytting providing commentary. It’s the TV equivalent of the one-scene film “My Dinner With Andre” only 6 times Jubblinger. From Rune Moeklebust, producer for NRK [Reuters]:

“We’ll talk about the very nerdy subjects like burning, slicing and stacking the wood, but we’ll also have cultural segments with music and poems. It will be very slow but noble television.”

It’s hard to beat slow but noble television. The only way to make the 12-hour fireplace show more Jubbling: simulate the fire with computer graphics and dump the firewood expert Lars Mytting. I’ve heard firewood experts are total divas. [Reuters]

Animal Planet’s ‘Eating The Enemy’ – Watch STRETCH Turn Invasive Species Into Flavorful Meals.

Animal Planet's Eating the Enemy.A good watch is the Animal Planet’s new show “Eating the Enemy.” The show’s premise is simple – send restaurant owner STRETCH into an area dealing with an invasive species (asian carp and wild boar) and he’ll develop a menu item using it. STRETCH doesn’t create the entree on his own; he meets with local chefs to discover the seasonings to use, helps catch the main course and then prepares a meal at a local restaurant hoping they’ll add it to their menu. In the first episode, STRETCH makes sliders using asian carp (or “Bayou bass”) as his main ingredient. I didn’t watch the second episode about hunting and preparing wild boars in Texas.

If you get a chance, check out “Eating the Enemy.” The show next airs on December 31st. A nice bonus of the show is that they cut to the chase and keep it to 30 minutes. [Animal Planet]
