Weekend EditionYes, a football game happens on Sunday and we feel we've already written enough about the Anti-Choice/Anti-Gay Bowl and the dang thing seems to occupy every other moment on the TV anyway. It's our job to point out the not-so-obvious and this weekend, one of those items happens to be the broadcast premiere of a documentary called What's On Your Plate? on Planet Green on Saturday at 7pm (and Sunday at 11am).

LAist abounds with enough food-related articles that we know you love seeing pictures of food, reviews of restaurants, news of food trucks and food festivals - basically you guys love food. If you really do love food, and you care about what goes into your food, and particularly if you have kids or have friends with kids, you should check out What's On Your Plate? Alice Waters, Michael Pollan, Kofi Annan, and many other high-profile folks weigh in on the film at their website

The film was the brainchild of two public school girls in New York City who started asking questions about what they were being served in school. While narrated by the girls, this is not kids' movie, this is a film meant for everybody. We thought we knew everything about organic food sources and processing technologies but this film filled in a lot of the blanks for us. What's On Your Plate? airs on Planet Green on Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 11am - and therefore will not interfere with your viewing of any football game.

The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "Caprica", "The Soup", "Friday Night With Jonathan Ross", "John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show", Letterman (Jack Hanna!), Ferguson (Claire Danes). Saturday - What's On Your Plate?, "Demons", "The Dish", SNL (Ashton, Them Crooked Vultures). Sunday - "Puppy Bowl", "Super Bowl" (or The Pink Panther on TCM), "Undercover Boss", "Big Love".
