I just finished Dead Like Me. After about 4 episodes I really started craving diner food. Tonight I went to a local diner and got some type of greasy egg, meat, and hash brown sandwich. It was so good. It hit the spot.

What other shows/movies have you watched that made you crave something until you got it?

The Gordon Ramsey yelling at people show.
But no one around me has Beef Wellington. Even the liquor store doesn't have it anymore at wine tastings.

I kind of wish I had some chinese food, but I don't want to spend money. Any show about something chocolate will make me want that stuff.

Um, HECK yea! Bc of the infomercials, everyone in my family bought Rotisseries. We still have them! One for use throughout the year, and one for Passover! Regularly cooked meat is incomparable in awesomeness to meat in the rotisserie.

Other shows:

Top Chef. Can't and won't watch it without eating.

Iron Chef America, unless they are using something strange. I tried to introduce my extended family to this show, and the secret ingredient was some giant Japanese fish. After watching slo-mo replays of burly chef's hacking off the giant head with the giant eye staring up at us, my family decided to watch something else--forever.

The venison version was not a hit either.

Diners drive ins and dive with Guy Fieri, but ofcourse it is a show all about burgers and hotwings.

We have the George Jr. From everything I've heard, it's much better.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Bend it Like Beckham both make me incredibly hungry. And the latter, preferably for Indian food (though eventually I'll get hungry enough that any snack will do!)

Bah. My roommate has that. You don't know what you're missing.

Our family never used to eat turkey, and continues to refuse to unless it was cooked in the Rotisserie.

Any football game ever. Sure, it's not technically a show, but it's shown on television and it makes me really hungry. And thirsty, for that matter.

Every time I watch Strange Brew I have to have a donut. In any other situation they turn my stomach, but that show makes them irresistable.

Man vs. Food

He did a show in my home town and it made me want to take the 2 hour drive back to get a cream pie from Schmidts and a Thurman Burger

The cooking shows make me hungry - Iron Chef (Japan or US), depending on the ingredient, The Best (UK & Australia), and some of the Jamie Oliver shows.

Gilmore Girls, however, always makes me crave coffee. And sweets to go with it. Without fail.

Has anyone seen Julie and Julia with Meryl Streep? It looks like it will make me hungry, and happy.

Back when Dr. Phil was doing his weight-loss challenge, and they kept talking about all their favorite "crave" foods that they had to give up - made me hungry every time. I don't think his intent with his weight-loss challenge was to make me gain weight, but....
