Foodies - AMC's Making A Comedy Series About Us!

Food and comedy - my two favorite things!!!!!!! AMC is rumored to be creating its first original comedy series, Foodies. The series will follow a group of food-obsessed friends in Los Angeles.
I'm hoping the show pokes fun at foodies, an emerging group of food lovers who indulge in eating and drinking as a hobby. I'm not saying there's something wrong with being a foodie, eating and drinking are, in fact, two of my favorite hobbies.
I do think AMC has an awesome chance to exaggerate or parody this demographic, portraying them as those people who drop $100 on every meal, constantly talk about the tannins in wine and only Instagram their food.
Mmmmmm pizza.
This will be AMC's first attempt at an original comedy, but Mad Men and Breaking Bad prove that the network knows how to make great TV. There hasn't been much info released about this series just yet, but it's safe to say that if you've ever described your dish as "deconstructed", this show might offend you a little.

I feel like that's probably one of those freaky paleo recipes gone wrong.
I'm kind of dying at the fact there's legitimately an Instagram account with the name cookingforbae.
@danidee I know right, also poor bae for having to eat that pizza..
@allischaaff Me too!! I think this show has a lot of potential. Yeah...Breaking Bad as a really,really,really,really dark comedy. Hope this one's a little lighter.
Whoa, I'm excited to hear that this is in the works! I love food and comedy ^.^ I've always thought of Breaking Bad as a really, really dark comedy, tbh...

This has got to be the CRINGE-IEST wedding in history
So Married At First Sight is this show where complete strangers are matched by experts and they meet for the first time at their WEDDING. Of course this makes for very awkward moments sometimes, and fantastic tv moments a lot of times. Sam and Elizabeth had hands down one of the cringiest weddings ever on the show. Sam is an OK LOOKING tradie who is tired of being 'goodlooking' so he wants a wife. But Sam has conditions on his wife's weight, fingernails, personality and even her hair color. He wants a slim, quiet, brunette girl in natural makeup. Naturally, the experts paired Sam with Elizabeth, a nice outgoing store manager who has NONE of the qualities Sam asked for. Elizabeth is curvy and loud. And blonde! How dare she? It was a match made in cringe-hell. Elizabeth think he's beautiful, hot, and checks all her boxes. She is happy. While Sam thinks this: He is so rude... But poor Elizabeth is head over heels. When asked if they would consummate their marriage on the first night, Elizabeth excitedly said "Of course, it's her wedding afterall" And when Sam was asked his opinion if Elizabeth wanted to try to consummate... So embarrassing...Imagine someone saying they HOPE you don't try to touch them omg. Elizabeth should probably get a career as a psychic because she said this at the alter AND THEN THE VERY NEXT DAY : I honestly felt soooo bad for her, nobody deserves to treated like this on national tv! But I guess thats reality tv for ya, you never know what you will get!
