I love me a little British humour. I mean, some of it I just don’t get. Only Fools and Horses was a FAVE of my British colleagues and I really couldn’t see what was funny about it. But, The Office, The Inbetweeners… is there anything better?
This is where The Supersizers comes in. Giles and Sue dress up in period costume and eat the food from different periods in (mostly British) history from Regency to Victorian, Austerity Wartime to the 1970’s. And it’s hilarious. They definitely don’t take themselves seriously, and the food is sometimes downright bizarre or disgusting (as are the huge portions for some of the shows). I also think it’s pretty funny when they stay in costume and head to the streets of London yelling about bread or eating in the tube. They also check their vitals before and after the experiment to see how healthy or unhealthy the diet is.
If you are at all interested in food, history, Britain, and laughing.. well check it out.
Bonus? You can watch full episodes (split into 6 – 10 minute sections) on their YouTube channel or other channels on YouTube. Just google it people…
