Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed (and cooking-themed, it turns out) podcast:
00:31 Master of None: Allora, Catherine loved the first episode of season 2 of this Netflix original series created by Aziz Ansari (in which our hero, Dev, travels to Italy to learn how to make pasta). Terri thinks the series falls into the category of "Good, but Not for Me," but she'll keep watching.
09:58 The West Wing: We watched the season 3 episode "Indians in the Lobby," which is better known as "the one where Bartlet calls the Butterball turkey hotline" (and bores more than one loyal staffer with lectures on the Thanksgiving menu). Mentioned: The Extra Hot Great Canon.
18:04 Challenge Round: Chef: We were already hungry from the first two shows, and then along came Jon Favreau's Chef Carl Casper cooking up a delectable-looking grilled cheese in this charming movie. For next time, Terri challenged Catherine to watch three episodes of Cougar Town, all from season 3: "Ain't Love Strange," "One Story Town," and "Down South."
