Media meal: I wish I had a TV

This summer's TV menu for reality food shows whets my appetite. I may have to buy a TV because I'm so curious.

First, you have a new season of Top Chef, which I have enjoyed immensely in past years. I love their quirky quick-fire challenges and the fact that their food ranges from Kobe and truffles to sweet bread pudding made with stuff from a gas station.
Next, Hell's Kitchen is back on the air. I've never seen it and I'd prefer to miss it because I'm more concerned with the food, not some chef who makes himself feel better by belittling others.
Finally, there's Next Food Network Star hosted by Giada De Laurentis. I love her food and her approach, so naturally, I love this show too. What's interesting about it in my mind is not only do the contestants have to come up with awesome food (recipes available online), but they have to consider everything that goes into a television show about food. It makes me appreciate what I've been watching on TV on these years.
Thankfully, I can watch most of my favorites online, but I may have to breakdown and buy a TV.

I watched that show Hell's Kitchen a couple of seasons ago and found it pretty entertaining. But then I am a fan of watching some dude make himself feel better by belittling others...

I don't think we don't get any of those shows here :-(
