Does “Too Many Cooks” mean everything or nothing?
“What did it all mean?” asks Ian Crook. “Maybe everything: it was a postmodern satire of television and Web culture, a commentary on the power of nostalgia, a glimpse at the violence that lurks within us all. Perhaps it was a deconstruction on the very idea of virality itself: it”s the Internet that has too many cooks, and all of us, together, with our sharing and repeated clever comments and urge to be the first to share what thousands of others have already shared, have spoiled the broth. Or else it meant nothing, and quit it, you dummies.” PLUS: “Too Many Cooks” is the smartest critique of our changing TV landscape, it subverts our expectations of nostalgia, the “definitive” ranking of every character, “Too Many Cooks” creator says “I hate to talk about it too much,” “Too Many Cooks” is set in Denver, and how to get the “Two Many Cooks” song out of your head.
