I didn't even know this was on tonight, but was going through the guide to see what was on after Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and saw it coming on Seattle ABC (Our western US networks on our dish). OMG...
If Jamie still has hair left at the end of this go round, I'll be surprised because I'd already be pulling mine out in frustration at just a little bit of what's going on in just this first episode. Apparently they had an agreement w/the LA School Board to go in this year and then they yanked the permits from what I understand. So he went on Ryan Seacrest's radio show to get the word out to the parents about what was going on and invited them to his LA Headquarters to talk about things.
There are actual schools out there giving their kids a cold breakfast of sugary cereal w/*chocolate* milk!?! Really!?! And then they wonder why hyperactivity is so rampant in the schools? He had the parents bring in what their kids are eating at school and it was literally looking at a pastry bakery and a really, really, really bad one at that. And that was just from Breakfast!!
Since he couldn't get into the schools, he went to a Mom and Pop fast food resturant to try and work w/the guy to swap out a few things and just give it a try. This guy literally told Jamie to his face when they were battling over what a Milkshake is, that he would never serve what he considers a Classic American Milkshake w/the syrup and ice cream that he sells in his place to his kids. When Jamie asked him point blank why then would he serve that to his customers, he tried to give excuses, but then Jamie asked him did he care about his customers and he told him no, he didn't.
We won't even go into what happened when Jamie tried to get this guy to realize that quality will always beat quanitity/mass produced meat when he tried to introduce Angus cattle meat that was responisbly raised. Even though the ones that tried it said it was better, no way, no how.
Watching this tonight might not have been the best thing in the world to do, because after only one hour, I'm boiling mad at these idiots!! I mean...How many kids these days are being "diagnoised" w/ADHD when what is really going on is the overabundance of sugar in their diets due to the crap being allowed in their schools as a meal?
I remembered we had a thread last year, so thought I'd start one for this year.
