Nibbles: Somebody Feed Phil

Am I the only one watching way too much television? Well, maybe not as much as my daughter and her husband, both of whom are working at home. We talk every day, usually, and usually about food, books, weather, and television. Last week she said I had to watch Somebody Feed Phil. Phil is Phil Rosenthal, the writer, director, and producer of Everybody Loves Raymond. For the past three years, Phil and his team (one of whom is his brother, Richard) have traveled around the world and Phil eats with friends, strangers, and anyone who will feed him. I have watched seven episodes, from Marrakesh to Chicago. He’s adorable and funny and sweet, with a face that lights up when he eats. At the end, he Facetimes his dad, who is in his 90s. This may be the nicest television show I’ve watched in years.
