Martha's Good Thing O' the Week is: "Should you follow trends?" I don't really see how that comes into play in this episode, but I'm sure they'll manage to shoehorn it in as awkwardly as when they paralleled Martha's gardens with the car task. "You have a strong opinion about your own product, your own idea -- second-guessing yourself is unnecessary," Martha opines. What does that have to do with following trends? In her test kitchen, Martha pours milk into an Aplico baking dish of roasted rhubarb. And then burns her hand on the pan. I'm not going to make fun of that. All the dead skin has finally peeled off my left hand, and it no longer looks so shiny. "You should not always be looking for the trend. You should develop the trend," Martha counsels. Ah, I get it. But not really. Just because I want to develop a trend of primal screaming every night at 12:22 doesn't mean that people are going to stop looking at me like I'm insane and start doing it themselves. Martha and several of her closest friends -- er, co-workers sit around a long table and laugh for the camera.
