You cannot beat the informational and entertaining aspects of the show. However, I still do not understand why the people (PBS?) who releases Cook's Country and America's Test Kitchen cannot get the picture aspect ratio correct. The DVDs are never in the original aspect ratio (except maybe for the earlier seasons of America's Test Kitchen). It is either in a 4:3, a 4:3 letterboxed, or the worse, a 16:9 stretched 4:3!
The Season 4 of Cook's Country DVD is in 4:3 Letterboxed (black bars on all 4 sides of the picture). Come on already! How about producing the DVDs in anamorphic widescreen?
