Interesting Links: April 23, 2011

Just a few links to interesting TV and Web shows:

Cities of the Underworld

Cities of the Underworld was an American documentary television series that premiered on March 2, 2007 on History. The program explored the subterranean environment and culture beneath various civilizations. The series was hosted and narrated by Eric Geller for a short time in season one with Don Wildman taking over for the rest of the series. The show employed a quick-paced editing and shooting style along with extensive use of 3D computer graphics.

Really cool stuff about what people built in ancient times. It is apparent that people in earlier eras were no less sophisticated than us and did amazing things with available technology.

In my opinion, every single episode of this show is amazing.

Cooking with Dog (Japanese Style Cooking)

Cooking with Dog is a Japanese cooking show on YouTube – but don’t worry, they don’t actually cook dogs. It’s an internet cooking show comprised of short videos of simple Japanese recipes just wouldn’t be interesting unless it was narrated by a talking poodle.

Tells you more about average Japanese cuisine in a few clips than you could read in a whole book.

Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (DDD, The Triple D) is an American food television series that premiered in November 2006 on the Food Network. Produced by Page Productions, the program stars and is hosted by Guy Fieri.

I find this one interesting because of the sheer variety of restaurateurs and their signature dishes.

Do you have any suggestions? Comments?
