Editorial Reviews

The World's Best Places to Pig Out takes you to ten of America's best places to stretch your stomach. Imagine attempting to digest a 74-ounce steak in less than one hour. Gastrointestinal nightmare? Hardly. It's the Big Texan's steak challenge, in Amarillo, Texas.

Visit Eagle's Deli, in Boston, Massachusetts, where you too can tackle the Reilly Burger, a three-pound burger dotted with twelve slices of cheese. Take on the 12-egg omlette, a late night staple at Beth's Cafe in Seattle, Washington. Or, if you've got a hankering for pancakes, try the Seiad Valley Cafe, in Seiad Valley, California. They serve up five pounds of hotcakes! The Cafe only has one rule: if you lose it, you clean it up!This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Basically a cropped version of Adam Richman's Man Vs Food. Unfortunately, the cropped bits were the best part of MVF. On MVF, every episode is essentially of 2 parts, a walk-through of the specialties of the restaurant in question followed by food battle. Far as I go, it's the walk-through that's the more enjoyable part as the audience is introduced to the mouth watering dishes that the restaurant offers. Food is invariably presented in a flattering way in this part. The food battle can be a bit predictable and unappetizing as it always features Adam Richman's stuffing his face with hitherto appealing dishes, which is enough to make the most attractive food appear unattractive.

The DVD contains only the equivalent of the food battle part of MVF. It therefore only makes for indifferent and uninspired watching for us foodies.

When I buy a "season" on DVD I usually expect more than one episode on the DVD! Even though it was cheap, there are other foodie seasons that fall in that price range so was very suprised to find that it only contained one episode.

one thing to watch on this DVD-R. make sure you note this is DVD-R Format. not all players will play DVD-R. note this is in the format description. this seems to be a good DVD, if you note the format, so you can make sure you have a player that will play it. My Player does play this DVD-R well. not all DVD players will play DVD-R. the same is true of blue ray players, be sure they will play the format that you purchase. there is +R and -R DVD.
I like the show, and it works in my Sony player, just be sure to get a model that will play DVD-R on this one. I know how you feel about the format being incompatible with your player, for some. I have not yet purchased video on demand format, due to the fact it wont play on a DVD player. if you watch Amazon, you can find real good DVDs, watch the format and you can have a good DVD if you make sure your player plays the format you buy.

I have watched this quite a bit on the Travel Channel, but when I saw it on DVD I had to own it once and for all. So I ordered it because it was cheap, and wouldn't you know? That old adage "you get what you pay for" didn't even cross my mind.

I tried for over a half hour to get the thing to play and my Sony Blu-ray player would not read it. Sorry, it's the only player I have in the house. Sent it back. Awaiting refund. Went searching for similar problems and turns out this is the only review for this product.

If you don't think your player can read a DVD-R, don't chance it. I did, and now I'm a little mad. Live and learn.
