Food-pyramid inspired punny sitcoms

Anyone who’s seen Glory can attest to the importance of Matthew Broderick Robert Gould Shaw, leader of the first African American Army regiment. But did you know that he also had an obsession with movie theater grub? Watch this History Channel special about this Union Colonel’s devotion to snacks in Popcorn Colonel. (Inspired by Sally’s post…)

Next season on ITV4, Britain’s “experimental” channel, we learn all about small peanut farmer Nigel Pennywhistle, who does everything from planting his crop to, what he considers the most important part of his job, delivering it. Oh the escapades he has when he drives ’round the shire dropping off his wares and meeting new people. This fall, Nigel’s Driving Me Nuts.
