The bitter irony in McD's decision to stop cooking their fries in lard is that the potatoes themselves - a white, starchy, carb-heavy food with little nutritional value (most of that is in the skin that usually gets thrown away) - is almost certainly worse for you than the lard they cooked them in.

Let's discuss Taco Bell. I'm craving a Quesarito.

Yet the Chinese, who consume the most rice in the World have a life expectancy on par with us ..

I've spent plenty of time with various nutritionalists .. not in an effort to lose weight, but to get a handle on a more healthy eating habit .. the one thing I always came away with was, moderation .. eat what you like, just don't be a hog ..

It's tough since I love me a good Casino Buffet ..

BTW, I really do hope the Last Ship doesn't turn into The Last Sh*t. The story has promise, but needs better writers.JMHO

I am thoroughly enjoying this show the most out of the new ones this summer. Extant did nothing for me but wish it was over after first episode. Falling Skies I gave up on after 2 episodes. Under the Dome seemed to have gone way too wacky for me like they did the last two seasons of Lost. I could see this one dying pretty quick. The Strain has me hooked for some odd reason.


I like the Last Ship going to different locations. It really breaks up the boring of being on the ship all the time. Characters are growing on me. All though the Captain seems a little "stiff". Always liked Stephen Baldwin, especially in his Chuck days. The doctor doesn't feel right, maybe she will grow on me. She's like a cross between a younger Sandra Bullock and Kate Beckinsale but feels a little on the annoying side. Hope they keep this one going strong for one season. Make a good ending and leave it at that. I hope they don't try to drag it to season 2.

Cool Beans.

This food talk actually is making me want to riff on a Military topic perhaps more in tune .. when I was doing my tour in Vietnam in the early 1970's, we were getting C-Rations from the 1940's, which even came with a small pack of cigarettes .. never gave a second thought to the safety of eating them and I am still here to tell the tale ..

I do recall the stories that would get thrown around about you Navy guys and how well your ship's mess fed you ..

I drove down to Memphis a few weeks back .. in Bytheville, Arkansas at around 9:00 PM after a fuel stop, I was hungry and the only place I could see was Taco Bell .. so I motored in and decided to get out and eat in .. normally, I'd just get a couple tacos and a bean burrito, but, there must have been some sort of contest on how many Quesarito's they could sell, because they were pushing them .. so, I gave it a shot


Let's just say I was glad when I made it to the hotel ..

This is true. The Bell cleans you out better than a few bowls of...

I'm pretty sure you aren't suppose to eat the cigarettes, no matter how old they are!

I don't think anyone has given a first thought to that.

Had many c-rations as a kid. That was the staple for scouting trips, etc. for an Army brat in the 70's. Still wicked fast with a P-38 and still have memories of the round chocolate and crackers as some of the best I've ever had - but pretty sure that's because of the meal that preceded it.

I agree with you on all the shows you listed. I couldn't make it through the first episode of Falling Skies, which was really disappointing. I fell asleep during Extant.

I still like Under the Dome and The Strain, although both are not that well written or executed.

Agreed on all the Last Ship comments. By the way, Adam Baldwin, not Steven Baldwin, and he is not part of the Baldwin family. And Marissa Neitling ( LT. Kara Foster) is a dead ringer for a younger Poppy Montgomery!

Well, after watching the second ep, I think we can describe this show as 'Last Resort Lite'. Strip away all the plot nuance, script complexities, and reduce all the characters to cardboard cutouts (except the USS Nathan James itself) and you've got yourself a summer show scripted for success!

I mean, they couldn't make the despotic marooned boat owner any more evil if they had given him a handlebar mustache to twist and some railroad tracks upon which to tie his comely young conquest. It wasn't enough to make him ruthless, they had to make him a pedophile rapist to boot. Our heroes are all squeaky clean, steadfast, loyal, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. Even Adam Baldwin, who was born to play conflicted characters, is just too good to be true. Got to keep his trademark sneer though.

One thing I liked about LR is that the crew had their share of secrets and ulterior motives, including the Captain. Even the Chief was a mutineer with conflicting loyalties that made sense under the circumstances. Makes the characters much easier to like if they aren't all so darn perfect.

It looks like TNT learned from ABC's failure, stripped away all the subtlety that made 'Last Resort' so interesting, and crafted a much simpler show, sure to please everybody. And when they paged Michael Bay, they got their man!

That said, I'm in for the duration. It's fine for summer, when the livin' is easy. To get back on the food topic, not every meal needs to be full of healthy ingredients, thoughtfully prepared. Sometimes a Big Mac is just what the doctor ordered.

Besides, if we want subtlety, we've always got 'Falling Skies'. No, wait....

I think he's very underrated in Hollywood. We've seen him excel as the smart/talented CIA agent on Chuck, now the capable XO on TLS, and as the almost illiterate Jayne Cobb ("If I wanted schoolin- I would have gone", "that hat makes you look like an idiot!" ) on Firefly.

"Pearl Harbor" was the best Big Mac ever made that was then dropped on the floor in a puddle of strawberry milkshake.

Yeah, Chuck was fun too. I am glad he is in The Last Ship. He fits perfectly. Also, Yvonne from Chuck was in 24: LAD. She was fun too. Both were good roles for them! I stopped watching Under the Dome last week and got too BUSY for this week's, so I said frak it. I couldn't get into Falling Skies.

Yes, they eat a lot of it but not as much of the processed stuff we eat here, they also eat a lot of fish and poultry, food items that are not as high a percentage of the US diet as it is in Asia. There are many different types of rice, but the most commonly used processed white rice here in the US is a virtual carb bomb, there's no getting around that.

By 'they' I assume you also mean my Chinese American family which uses rice as a main staple and otherwise eat perfectly healthy. Whatever. Eat rice or not, whatever floats your boat...'boat' being the operative word here, since this is supposed to be a thread about The Last Ship, and not preachy diet advice.
