The Supersizers Go... REGENCY

For those of you in the UK, the following is probably not going to be anything new to you. But here in the US, the offbeat, historically-minded gourmand's dream that is The Supersizers Go... has only recently been released on Hulu.
And I pretty much binge-watched the entire series in 3 days.

I honestly probably wouldn't have paid much attention, even foodie that I am (the name of the show didn't draw me in), if it hadn't been for the fact that the show image on the Hulu splashscreen was a still from the episode embedded below, which - lo and behold - was on the Regency period.
Yes, I know, I have a lot of bookmark icons - I'm a serious interneter, people!
 I've never turned away from a well-tied cravat, and I'm not about to start now...

I don't think anyone would be surprised that I felt the need to watch it immediately.
And then again.
And maybe one more time, for research. I couldn't present something to you that I didn't deem worthy, right?

... as I was saying, they have a whole series based on immersing themselves (often comically) into different time periods, and luckily for us, one of them happened to be the Regency. If you've ever questioned whether you'd really want to travel back to Jane Austen's time, or wondered, just what the hell is white soup?, then enjoy!

PS. I should note, I'm not sure that this will play outside of the US, and I'm also not sure whether you have to be a Hulu+ subscriber to view it in its entirety. I don't believe you have to be, but if you do, and you want to be able to watch, you can sign up for 2 weeks free and binge-watch like I did. =D

NOTE: This has since been removed from Hulu, but is available on cast member Sue Perkins' Facebook as of August, 2019.

  1. Gahhh! I love the Supersizers! It's one of the few shows that my husband will actually watch with me :p So glad you discovered it :D

  2. Somewhere, several months ago, I caught a medieval episode (BBC America?), but never saw it again. Must, MUST watch this one (and probably many more)!

  3. It's the same for us Morghan, one of the shows that both myself and hubby will sit down to enjoy together. I think it's a great idea for a show because one thing we all do is eat, and it's interesting to see how differently food was cooked in different periods.

  4. Something new to me to check out. Thanks!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
