You guys know what a TV-show junkie I am, right?
Remember my Top 8 TV show food moments post?
If you enjoyed it, I’m back with part 2!
It was only appropriate, considering the huge number of new shows out there now that have me glued to my laptop almost every night.
This time around the characters involved include earls, lawyers, doctors, stewardesses, vampires, hunters and scientists!
Three cheers for diversity!
# 8 Terra Nova
Season 1/episode 1 (Genesis)
The orange scene
The year is 2147. The Earth is exhausted, taking its last few breaths. In these dark times, a father brings home a surprise for his children. It’s an orange.
Can you imagine fruit being hard to come by? I can’t.
The back-in-time space the characters move to inhabit, is portrayed as a fertile land full of strange and colourful fruit.
Also: Dinosaurs rock. (Sorry I just had to say that.)
# 7 Pan Am
Season 1/episode 9 (Kiss kiss bang bang)
The coffee scene
Pilots and stewardesses are supposed to be on their best behaviour in the sky.
Except this one time.
The usually gentle-mannered Laura drops hot coffee on a creepy old pilot when he tries to stare down her shirt.
# 6 Grey’s Anatomy
Season 2/episode 14 (Tell me sweet little lies)
The hot dog scene
The one time on the show where Christina isn’t dull, ill tempered, obnoxious and generally disagreeable.
A super fun hot dog eating competition, in the middle of the work day?! Who says docs don’t have fun?
Also, those hot dogs made me mighty hungry. Like seriously.
# 5 The Vampire Diaries
Season 2/episode 5 (Kill or be killed)
The spiked lemonade scene
Okay to be honest I had to think long and hard for this one.
This show has been a guilty pleasure for a long time and I really wanted to include it!
At an innocent town picnic (or so we think) a werewolf spikes lemonade with vervain, to hurt and expose two vampires.
This stuff is right up my alley by the way.
# 4 Downton Abbey
Season 1/episode 5
The salty pudding scene
In this period drama, Mrs Patmore the cook makes a stunning raspberry meringue pudding and then mistakenly tops it with salt instead of sugar.
All the lords and ladies at the dinner table choke and splutter quite appropriately, and although it’s the cook’s worst nightmare, it’s such a funny scene!
This is the hottest new thing in TV-show land, and if you’re not watching it yet- start NOW.
If nothing else, I can bet a million bucks you’ll adore Maggie Smith’s badass character.
# 3 The Good Wife
Season 1/episode 23 (Running)
The pizza scene
Taking a break from the legal madness that is their lives, Alicia and Will share a casual pizza and beer in office, reminiscing about their days together in college.
The simple food and the completely complex relationship makes for a fantastic moment.
Plus Julianna Margulies has such an intriguing face. Don’t you agree?
# 2 Supernatural
Season 2/episode 21 (All hell breaks loose-Part 1)
The pie scene
The swoon-worthy (equal parts masculine and sensitive) Dean Winchester loves pie. (one of the MANY reasons why I love him)
The problem is there’s always something that gets in the way- demons, pagan Gods, and his brother Sam’s habit of showing up with cake instead of pie. (It’s not the same thing, Sam!)
My fav Dean lines in the show: “Hey, see if they’ve got any pie. Bring me some pie. I love me some pie.”
There’s even a site dedicated to the Dean and pie love story. Check it out here.
This is some serious stuff.
# 1 The Big bang theory
Season 1/episode 7 (The dumpling paradox)
The dumpling scene
Food comes up very often on this show, but this scene in their regular Chinese restaurant has to be the funniest one ever.
(Also- dumplings! I want one please. Now.)
Read below and revel in the greatness that is Sheldon.
Scene: A Chinese restaurant.
Sheldon: I’m sorry, we cannot do this without Wolowitz.
Leonard: We can’t order Chinese food without Wolowitz?
Sheldon: Let me walk you through it. Our standard is, the steamed dumpling appetizer, General Tso’s chicken, beef with broccoli, shrimp with lobster sauce and vegetable lo-main. Do you see the problem?
Leonard: I see a problem.
Sheldon: Our entire order is predicated on four dumplings and four entrees divided among four people.
Leonard: So, we’ll just order three entrees.
Sheldon: Fine. What do you want to eliminate? And who gets the extra dumpling?
Raj: We could cut it into thirds.
Sheldon: Then it is no longer a dumpling. Once you cut it open it is at best a very small open faced sandwich.

Hope you enjoyed that!
Have a fun weekend
