I’m not sure how I stumbled across ‘My Drunk Kitchen’ a few months back, but it is one of those things that is instantly likeable and draws you in.
Hosted by Hannah Hart, the idea is remarkably simple…. Hannah gets drunk and then attempts to do some cooking, with mixed results. For those of you old enough to remember it, it might well be comparable to an alcohol related version of ‘Get Stuffed’, but without the 90s wackiness… oh, and funny.
While, in principle, the idea should be quite dull, I find Hannah to be very engaging and just ridiculously likeable, so can overlook the essential pointlessness of the concept. Each episode quickly becomes less about the basic foodstuff that she is attempting to make, and more about nothing other than her drunk observations or asides. So, really, without her personality, this would be dead in the water within seconds. This is the only problem really, as if you don’t find her interesting, the whole thing falls apart rapidly. But, I guess this is the main weakness of a lot of youtube bloggers and personality driven web shows… you either like them or find them incredibly irritating… For me, this is the former!
