After cleaning up the country's most unhealthy town of Huntington, West Virginia last season, Jamie Oliver is back for round two tonight and setting his sights on the public school lunches of the infamously bureaucratic nightmare that is Los Angeles. Unsurprisingly, the slop providers for the L.A. school district get him kicked out of the schools and he is forced to take his act to some fast food restaurants for the majority of the season. Just like a real drop-out!
After a break during May sweeps (ABC ran reruns of Dancing With the Stars instead), Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution returns tonight. In his quest for a healthier America, Oliver promised his show would attack problems of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in the country -- particularly because the children of this current generation are the first not expected to live as long as their parents. Dark. Anyway, in this season, Oliver and his team travel to Los Angeles to tackle the aforementioned health problems.
I did not think I was going to like Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, but as I've explained before, this show is great (flash mobs aside). Even though it feels like Jamie is just starting to make progress in Huntington, tonight is the last we'll see of his revolution. Celebrate with homemade vegetable stir-fry!
