    Hey this is America. Just try turning the channel. :)

    Not a hater!

    They were very good in the begining. But now they are a little over the top. They need to freshen it up.

    I agree they are a bit sickening…too cutesy for my taste. So…I just don't watch them unless there isn't anything available with Guy Fieri! I can never get sick of him! He is adorable in a little brother sort of way!

    What's wrong with showing love your spouse? If more people did that, maybe there would be less divorces? Just my opinion

    I agree with most… they seem to be great people but over the top. As a person taught to use knives right I also find them dangerous when chopping food.

    I agree with you completely as does my family. We are NOT prudes! This is just not attractive.

    Get a life. I don't think this has to do with their cooking. They aren't working in an office where they have micromanaging. They love each other. Live with it or go away. Go eat some rice cakes if you want "healthy".

    I agree with you and I don't watch them anymore. Got sick of their little sex games.

    That is pretty much how they talk here in our town. They could tone it down a bit, but for their goal audience they are just fine and super nice folks and really good cooks.
    They enjoy each other and enjoy cooking .
