It’s Gourmet Guess Day! Also, Steve Carell is leaving The Office. Who would be a good replacement and what’s new on DVD. 

Your Gourmet Guess clue for today: China is the number one producer of this vegetable that comes from the wild mustard plant. It is a primary ingredient for many dishes around the world including coleslaw and sauerkraut. (Scroll down for the correct answer.)

NBC Universal has announced that Steve Carell‘s last episode of The Office will air April 24. Pete and I are both horribly disappointed, however, the bosses at Dunder Mifflin say they will hire a new boss to lead the team. Wil Ferrell will be stepping in in the interim, but can they successfully replace Michael Scott? We feel the best candidate would be Ricky Gervais. Who do you think would be best replacement?

New movies out on DVD today include the Academy Award winning film The Fighter starring Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg, Melissa Leo and Amy Adams. The movie tells the story of Mickey Ward (Wahlberg) who is trying to save his failing boxing career. Bale plays his brother Dickey Ward who was a successful boxer, but threw his career away on drugs. Adams plays Mickey’s girlfriend and Leo stars as Dickey and Mickey’s mother. Peter and I agree this one is a buy.

Hereafter starring Matt Damon. Damon plays a reluctant psychic trying to live a normal life, despite being able to talk to the dead. This one was directed by Clint Eastwood and is especially poignant in the aftermath of the disaster in Japan, as one of the film’s characters survives a tsunami. Peter was disappointed in the ending, so he calls this one a rent.

The Switch starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. Jennifer plays a girl who hires a handsome stud to be a sperm donor so she can have a baby. Bateman plays her best friend who replaces “the goods” after a bathroom mishap. Jennifer and Jason are both excellent in this one, but it’s the kid who steals the show. We both call this one a buy, BUT, the subject matter is a little mature for kids, so you may want to watch this one after you put the little ones to sleep.
