Check Please Arizona! (PBS Arizona)
Finally, Check Please Arizona! is back on the air with a new season and new restaurants. There's a new host, Mark Tarbell, who, putting aside his goofy bow tie and really bad hair, has not nearly the personality of his predecessor Mr. McGrath. Indeed, he's boring. The set is the same; the format is the same, the seques are the same; the graphics are the same, and, worst of all, the lighting of the food that makes everything look a sickening yellow, is the same. Still, it's fun to learn about the featured restaurants. After all, we would never have heard or been able to recommend Eden's Grill but for Check Please Arizona!
