He is actually doing a good job, much better than the new Food Network Star winner, the blond gal (can't remember her name). She made crispy potato's by sauteing them in oil, then adding a little water, covering, steaming until tender and then adding butter and popping them in the oven to crisp them up???? Way to many steps, I would never have the time to do that for dinner. It's much easier to purchase the little frozen cut squares spritz with Olive Oil and bake "same end result". Or you can just toss fresh cut potato's with Olive Oil, season with salt, pepper and some garlic then bake in a 400 degree oven until crispy
The longer I sit at watch Brian I am impressed, the camera is kind to him and he is funny ;)
He's also offers helpful cooking tips through out the show.
