Thanks Alton!  
Forgot to mention the Strawberry Sky episode of Good Eats that was on recently.

His description of free radicals and what antioxidants can do for you (and me, as well) was great. Basically, he had his crew (an atom) sitting around with strawberry desserts (in place of electrons), and took one of the desserts away from one unfortunate crew member. This, in turn, caused that person to seek out a new dessert which caused each person that was missing a dessert to seek out someone else's dessert (and also turned he/she into a free radical). Alton then played the antioxidant role and provided the missing dessert (or electron) back to the person that needed it, without asking for anything in return, even. Neat. Well, seemed neat enough to me anyway. It was more entertaining to watch than read my poor description of it.

That's right, I was completely unsure of what each meant beforehand and had not looked it up before.

Also did NOT know that one of Alton's first jobs was as Director of Photography for R.E.M.'s The One I Love video. As if I couldn't like the man enough already.

Dishy boy.
I love Alton. He's my boyfriend. He doesn't know it, but he is. Oh yes. And we're in love. Truly. Madly. Deeply.

That is one of my favorite episodes. Mostly because it has Alton in it. But also because of the strawberries.

Re: Dishy boy.
Like Alan Rickman and Juliet Stevenson (or Jamie and Nina), eh?

He's alright, that Alton.
