Lets Update You With Somebody Feed Phil Season 5

somebody feed phil season 5

If 2020 is a wide desert, a barren wasteland devoid of hope, “Somebody Feed Phil” is the most stunning oasis on the horizon. And its kind host, Phil Rosenthal, is a sight for hurting eyes, thirsty tongues, and empty stomachs. There are certain television shows that deserve to be recommended and others that don’t, but it’s unusual to come across a show that makes you want to wax poetic. Under normal conditions, Someone Feed Phil is a rarity, but it’s even more so during a time when escapism is critical to keeping one’s sanity.

Take a Recape of Somebody Feed Phil Season 4

Phil Rosenthal, in each episode of Somebody Feed Phil, casts a spell on the audience in the greatest way imaginable. He entertains, amuses, and provokes thought in us. He’ll put on his professorial hat to teach us about new places and what makes them unique. He makes you feel something. Most importantly, he transmits joy, both on the ground and through our television screens. Phil Rosenthal is a gift that keeps on giving.
Phil takes us to Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Singapore, the Mississippi Delta, and Hawaii in Season 4 of Somebody Feed Phil, which was taped right before the world as we know it was flipped upside down. That’s where the magic happens, since we don’t have passport stamps or frequent flier miles.

It would be an understatement to say Phil was a touch schizophrenic in Rio. Even though it appeared to be a little warm, he didn’t let that stop him. Seeing a black-socked Phil come out onto his Pope-like hotel balcony during Carnival and impulsively break into dancing still makes me smile. (Yes, in the same recap, I used Yiddish and made a pope allusion!) Only Phil Rosenthal could elicit such a wide range of descriptive possibilities.

Aside from the breathtaking surroundings, seeing how Cachaca is manufactured was intriguing. Cachaca, Brazil’s national beverage, is a distilled rum derived from fermented sugarcane. It’s made by putting sugarcane into a machine that resembles a cross between a wood-chipper and a juicer. Phil didn’t need to be persuaded to try the spirit.
