Home Cooked! with Julie Goodwin

Winner of MasterChef Australia season 1, Julie Goodwin, finally got her own cooking show on Channel 9. However the show is in a crappy timeslot of Saturday afternoon at 5:30pm! I usually don’t watch TV at that time, but made an effort to catch the first episode yesterday just to see what it is like…
After watching it, verdict is that it is not as good as Poh’s Kitchen which is livelier and more interesting with the inclusion of proper chefs but it is definitely better than Delish which was pulled off the schedule on 7Two after only 5 episodes. Interestingly enough, I was flicking through the different channels yesterday waiting for Home Cooked to start and guess what, saw Delish back on the main Channel 7 at 5:00pm with a repeat of the first episode just before the premiere of Julie’s show on the rival network. Trying to cash in, Channel 7?
I don’t know why Channel 9 always insists on the so-called celebrities appearing in all their light entertainment or cooking shows. In last night episode, the celebrity, I don’t even know who the guy was, added nothing to the show except maybe for Julie to have someone to talk to instead of by her lonely self for the half hour… Why can’t they have proper chefs as guests like in Poh’s Kitchen… Let’s see how long this show will last seeing the timeslot is so unfriendly, I can see myself forgetting and missing it every week…

    • Agreed, I thought the second episode was better as she seemed to be more relax.
