Thanksgiving Weekend TV Marathon: 'Food Paradises'

Travel Channel: Sunday, 1 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Why you should gobble up 14 hours of yet more gobbling: It’s the Sunday after Thanksgiving now, and what’s left of the turkey is dry and tasteless and it really is time to say adios to the rest of that hardened pumpkin pie. A perfect opportunity to turn our attentions to the wonderment of other, non-seasonal foods — hello, donuts! hi, sandwiches! hey there, BBQ! — and take ourselves on a 14-hour journey to the splendor of the world’s great Food Paradises.

Must-see episode: “Pizza Paradise” (3 p.m.): Notice that the categories above are “100% Pure Cheese, Happy Holidays, Television.” Sounds like this show described to a tee…

How about you, PopWatchers? Planning on some post-Turkey Day couch surfing courtesy of the Travel Channel? Which Food Paradise is your favorite? And come on back after you gorge yourself on a few hours and share any thoughts/dreams/new observations you may have stumbled upon during your TV gluttony.
