The Perennial Plate, a series about sustainable food, goes to Boca Grande, Florida, to meet the island's "Lizard Patrol." After iguanas were introduced 30 years ago, they flourished; now over 10,000 of them are threatening native plant and animal species. George Cera's job is to hunt down the invaders, firing deadly shots from behind the wheel of a golf cart. The Perennial Plate is produced by Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine, and while Fine, who is a vegetarian, is less than thrilled to watch an iguana get shot in the opening sequence, Klein heads to the kitchen to help Cera prepare some lizard snacks. After taking a bite, he announces, "Oh yeah, I would eat that any day."
More episodes from the series can be found on the Atlantic Video channel here.
