Good Eats is no ordinary cooking show riddled with boring recipes exemplified by the host. It is much more than that and goes further into the science of cooking and how things work to produce the best dishes possible. Good Eats is a cross between Julia Child's TV show, Mr. Wizard and Sesame Street with a little sitcom thrown in for good measure. A theme is presented each episode that can include a holiday, like Thanksgiving or Christmas, or a certain food like peas, cheese or beef. Host, Alton Brown uses a cacophony of visual aids from a hand-made puzzle of cow parts to show which cut of meat works best, to puppets, like the yeasties that are sock puppets that burp and bubble their way into risen dough. Often times there is a plot or story line to the 21 minute show. Alton Brown usually plays himself and other regular characters, played by family and friends, come by from time to time to add to the plot. Farmer McGregor is the elderly neighbor, who grows a garden that Alton pilfers, but always brings a finished product to him to eat. His TV sister Marsha and nephew Elton are other regulars as is redneck cousin Ray, Colonel Boatwright who imparts advice on southern recipes, Deborah Duchon a nutritional anthropologist that always knows the history of food and B. D. Brown or the Anti-Alton
