The only part of today's episode of 'Anderson' that I liked was the Boston Market segment and that was a bit of a disappointment because it seemed very short. I liked what I saw and wanted to see more.

Please tell me why it was important for Anderson to show himself working at Boston Market, for a spot that lasted, less than 5
minutes.
Was this a labor related issue or just AC showing his cuteness and that he too can do 'stuff' other people object to doing.
It is all becoming quite strange and puzzling and not amusing.
Not only does his show lack content, it now also lacks an objective.

I just watched the Boston Market clip, a letdown since it was only a couple of minutes and didn't show him interacting with the customers; there was nothing to it. The last segment I checked out before this was facing Anderson's phobias. Wonder if he'll ever do an interesting program. I read the topics for this show and don't even bother to watch the clips on his website.

So he went to work at Boston Market (Cut a chicken in half) and we get to see exactly a minute of it (I timed... half of that was the chicken cutting).

I feel like there's so much they could be talking about/expanding on. And so much of it isn't hard to find or come up with. I don't understand how they work over at Anderson.

Thanks, ATA, for putting the Boston Market clip on here. Totally agree that it was way too short.

The bit was simply to show Anderson being cute out of his element. And to give Boston Market some advertising. But so much more could have been done with this topic.

I mentioned in a previous post how "Anderson at Boston Market" could be expanded into an hour-long show by talking about teenagers and regular folk who work at fast-food places. Or talking about how healthy/unhealthy the food is (with guest Morgan Spurlock?). Or how we're in a recession but people are still spending gazillions of dollars on fast-food.

At one point Anderson said it was hard work and I was thinking *DUH*. As a teenager I worked at Taco Johns (the lesser-known cousin to Taco Bell) for three months and it was horrible. Anderson didn't look like he worked that hard at Boston Market. Have him deal with 10 drunk teenagers and then having to clean up the vomit (a couple made it to the bathroom, a few others did not).
