    Good concept, poorly executed.

    Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.

    The subject matter of "Unwrapped" is interesting, but two aspects of the script are extremely annoying. First, the writers go to absolutely absurd lengths to use alliteration, e.g., "Now the tumbling tubers are toasted and tossed." The first two times it's cute ("Ha, ha, 'tumbling tubers.'") But it has now reached the point where the show suffers because they try too hard to make an alliterative sentence to describe EVERY SINGLE SCENE we see! Enough! The second is the writers' obsessive compulsive insistence on using active voice, e.g., "Next, cheddar and chives add to the mix," as opposed to "Next, cheddar and chives are added to the mix." Yes, I know that they teach you that active voice is stronger and you should use it at all times, but come on! It sounds forced and unnatural when Marc Summers constantly is forced to read these alliterative monstrosities in active voice!

    This show makes me hungry. It's supposed to, of course, being that while you may be intrigued about the behind-the-scenes look at secret to Campbell Soup's Chicken Noodle creations or the secret ingredient of Halls cough drops, you're really just being sold a commercial disguised as a television show, courtesy of the Food Network.Marc Summers, former Nickelodeon gameshow regular, hosts a new type of food program. One that requires no chefs, no cooking instruction, and nothing more than a desire to go to the store (or the town for those local-produced foods) and buy exactly what it is you see in each show (duh! you're watching a half-hour commercial) Its only purpose: to expose something you didn't know about processed foods.

    I remember back when Marc Summers was the host for 'Double Dare.' But some things never change, because he's just as, if not more, corny! But hey, I love this show! Food Network is awesome, and 'Unwrapped' is for sure their best offering. From the first time I saw it, I wanted to see more secrets behind the snacks we all grew up with. It's educational, entertaining, and in my case, makes me want to open up some candy.If Food Network keeps up this show, I'll remain faithful to their ratings.

    Well.. What can I say about this show. I did in fact watch three consecutive episodes, so it was entertaining. But Marc Summers and his exceedingly corny joke-comments turned me off of a fourth. Don't get me wrong, this is an OK show. What gives it its entertainment value is that you learn man interesting and useless facts about favorite foods in 30 minute increments. Things that I have learned are: How many licks does it really take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? How was ice-cream invented? So, if you have 30 minutes to waste, this isn't bad, but not good either.
