“Somebody Feed Phil” – Netflix

McFarland admits it’s a shameless fork. Phil Rosenthal, a member of the ATX Television Festival Advisory Board, is featured on the travel food show. Season 6 is available now, and one episode features McFarland and her ATX Television Festival co-founder and co-CEO Emily Gipson eating a meal with Phil in Austin.

“And it’s a great show to go to and go back and forth and drool over the food, whether it’s in Austin or Nashville or Croatia, wherever he goes,” says McFarland.

Ghosts – BBC/HBO Max or CBS/Paramount+

Kincaid says it’s her go-to fork because she loves the show so much – both the BBC original and the CBS remake.

“They’re both great,” says Kincaid. “But I just want to make a big stub for the BBC version of Spooks because they have Christmas episodes that just hit your nerves.”
