All Rise...

Judge Dawn Hunt will watch most revenge movies but draws the line at Montezuma's.

The Charge

"Cooks, servers, and regulars all across America share their love and loyalty for our most important meal of the day."

The Case

Rick Sebak narrates a fast-paced look at what many consider to be the most important meal of the day: breakfast. With twelve scenes clocking in at just under an hour, Breakfast Special 2: Revenge of the Omelets travels all over the country hitting up local joints and getting a quick insight into what flavors not only the food but the people and culture surrounding the restaurants.

The special calls to mind comparisons with similar shows such as Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and Travel Channel's Man vs. Food. And it indeed follows a similar formula, but the payoff is it's also easy to enjoy like those other shows.

Don't watch this while hungry. I'm not someone who eats breakfast every day (I like to have breakfast food at dinner time) but watching this made me want to break out my car keys and go on a cross-country road trip to track down these joints.

The standard def 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen video and Dolby 2.0 Stereo audio are both rather understated, but that's to the show's credit. Breakfast Special 2: Revenge of the Omelets is an everyman's show, and thus the lack of HD or Dolby 5.1 merely reinforces this is a show for the people. And the people don't need fancy, they just want real.

Special features include some deleted scenes and a collection of promo spots.

If you're a fan of food shows, Breakfast Special 2: Revenge of the Omelets is a no-brainer. It's a simple and fast-paced overview of some really unique and welcoming spots.

The Verdict

It's over-easy to call this one Not Guilty.
