one more for "unwatchable" due to the banter and inuendo. is it supposed to be cute? i wouldn't visit relatives that acted like that every time they cooked, let alone subject myself to them in my own home, which is in the nature of tv broadcasting.

some might argue that it's important to have more people of african descent on tv, but not if they suck. bad tv is bad tv, even in black and white.

hi def black and white, of course.

At this point in the history of our planet, in the world of cooking, there's nothing really new under the sun is there? You can give it a clever new name, add a quirky ingredient, change it's presentation, tweak it here and there...but "a rose by any other name is still a rose"...agree?

I agree!!! Oh I so agree!!! There are a couple of new cookbooks on "Southern" cooking where the recipes have been so Adulterized, Francoized and Bastardized to the point that a Southern Grandma wouldn't/couldn't recognize them.. Let alone the new Artsy Fartsy, Hoity Toity name for the dish....Yet to the uninformed, misinformed, and gullible neophytes, they suck it up hook, line, and sinker as Southern cooking. ~~ Bless there hearts!!!

PS...I didn't realize the Neely fiasco was still on the air.......

Yes, if they turned down the "cute factor" some I could watch them. But right now it just far too "sweet".

And yet another vote for totally unwatchable due to the cutesy "gimmee some sugar, honey" b.s. antics. Good friggin grief. Haven't watched them since their very first one or two episodes. Gag City.

As a fourth generation Native Memphian (we escaped due to the high crime rates and fortunately landed in Tejas over 25 years ago), the Neelys are a joke! I still have friends and family there, and not a one of them has ever been to the Neely's "Interstate BBQ". When I watched one of their first episodes, one of their recipes was for "Jello Poke Cake", a recipe that was presented as an old family heirloom recipe. They're gross and inappropriate. Gimme a break! We were also on a Champion Memphis in May BBQ cooking team. These people do not know how to cook a pig! I guess it's all about who you know, and . . . .
