It’s also one of the most consistent programs on TV, always making us laugh with their adventures and low-stakes stories.

It also has some of the best burger puns ever, like the “Bohemian Radishi Burger,” the “Poutine at the Ritz Burger,” or the “Eggers Can’t be Cheesers Favorite” (with fried eggs and cheese). We may never go to Bob’s Burgers, but we’ll try these recipes at home just to do it justice.
4 The cook, the thief, his wife and her lover (1989)
A thief (Michael Gambon) spends his days in the restaurant of French chef (Richard Boehringer), bullying everyone. His wife (Helen Mirren), tired of this behavior, began an affair with a regular (Alan Howard). That’s the plot of this movie, but it’s not the story at all.
Peter Greenaway has never been a traditional director, and this movie is no different. He was a painter and architect before he became a director, and you can see him in every frame he shoots. With an incredible artistic direction (each room is a different color, including the actor’s wardrobe, even if seconds ago they were in another room they were wearing something different) this is a sensual movie, full of luxury, decadence, and gluttony. A holiday has never looked so delicious and sad at the same time. Some said the film was an allegory against Thacher. What is certain, is that after the constant humiliation of the thief, the chef’s revenge is a dish served hot, in a delicious looking (though very poor) recipe.
