"How, exactly, do you equate Hollywood with the public education system?"
foodnfoto, our education system continues to grow our society’s lowest common denominator faster as a percentage than any other segment. Hollywood goes after the lowest common denominator more and more because that’s where the audience is growing. Simplicity entertains simplicity.
I’m not trying to degrade; it’s just being honest and a frustration how even cooking shows these days cater to the LCD.
For example, when Kitchen Nightmares first came out, it was interesting. As an entrepreneur myself and a love for cooking, a celebrity chef going into a struggling restaurant to see if he could turn it around was a hit for me.
Now the show is more about screaming, yelling, foul language, picking arguments and degrading the restaurant owners on camera. I’m sure that shift to the LCD has given them higher ratings but I don’t watch it anymore and it emphasizes my point.
