    Gordon Ramsay made the cooking shows a real TV hit for all ages!

    By snegiri, Mar 10, 2009

    British superstar chef and restaurant-owner Gordon Ramsay travels around Great Britain, helping unsuccessful restaurants to improve their quality of service and come back to life. Very useful, because it not only teaches to cook (it does not really go into details of the recipes), but Gordon shows his management skills and explains them to the viewers. It is truly funny, because the poor restaurant employees are being hammered (Beware, explicit language!!!) and the whole process results in serious drama. Lazy employees are not always prepared for the heavy task to live up to Gordon's expectations. Genuinely enjoyable show, except it always goes around the same scenario and is kinda predictable, but of course, every eatery has its own problems, so you can watch it again and again!moreless

    Gordon Ramsay goes from failing restaurant to failing restaurant offering his gruff nurturing, brutal honesty and stubborn style of desperately needed help. Most often dragging the owners and chefs kicking and screaming all the way to SUCCESS!

    Gordon Ramsay is a STAR! I am a fairly new fan of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and I just can't get enough. If you listen closely to the advice Gordon offers these Businessmen and women, the chefs and staff, you can hear how his words of advice can be applied to all walks of life and in almost any profession! His advice makes so much sense, common sense. Be prepared though for the bleeps as Gordon doesn't edit his language as he goes along. He is so passionate about what he does and says that he doesn't worry about the listener possibly being offended by his choice of vocabulary. That is one of the things I like about him. He is spontaneous and says what he's thinking and feeling at any given moment and still his advice is sound. He is so confident with HIs advice he just GIVES it, uncensored and right on the mark! I've learned alot from watching his shows. Do I ever think he could have handled someone with alittle more sensitivity? Yes. He can be hard on a person. But in the end he is there to help them and his warmth and caring come through. He means what he says and if shocking you into listening is what it takes then this is your man! Watch his eyes as he's speaking....you'll see the compassion and the passion even when he's being...well....sometimes verbally offensive. I'm so impressed with his knowledge and sound advice that I seem to see past the bleeps and just "get" what he's saying. He's a genuine man and I love him! Now I have to find out what channels his other programs are on!moreless

    Gordon Ramsay is on a mission to stop restaurants, of all over the world to go down the drain. The experties and patience of Chef Gordon Ramsay is put to the test as he tries to turn the tables for the kitchen nightmares. Ah, mind your language Gordon!

    For ashow that is full of kitchens nightmares and and hidious attitudes, "Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares" has had all the reviews from viewers around the world.

    This show is hosted by Chef Gordon Ramsay, one of the best chefs in the world, and also by his and his counterparts dirty language.

    It is one of the most popular and controversial TV shows in Australia. The reason why it is so controversial is because it has so much dirty language that, one viewer counted 80 dirty words used in one episode.

    The Tv show has been asked to be on air a little bit later at night or even to be band. A primary school principal in Victoria even had to ask for the parents of the children attending to not let their children watch the show because they were using the dirty language in the classroom.

    Gordon Ramsay watch your language! And as for the losers out their that don't like this show, (Duh!!!) switch the channel over dummies.moreless

    He swears because he cares!

    By Vertibrains, Nov 29, 2007

    I think this is a great series. One I never miss. So much more than just another cookery programme. In fact, there is very little actual cooking in the show. It is, rather, an entertaining way of demonstrating how to run a proper restaurant business, by showing all the pitfalls in the form of REAL failing businesses. In other words, a 'How NOT to do it' show.

    In some of the episodes, the owners are so arrogant, and think they know it all, but are losing staggering amounts of money every week. Ramsay has the patience, if not the language, of a saint! Great show. It'll make you wonder about the state of the kitchens next time you're in your favourite restaurant!moreless

    He may seem crazy but he knows what he is doing. Perfect is all I can say.

    By bigufofoot, Oct 18, 2007

    Ramsay may freak out at some point or another but that is only because the point he's trying to get across is not finding the right path to their brains. In other words the person he is trying to explain things to is too ignorant to get it through their head. This is definitely one of the shows that focuses on where most businesses go wrong. He is one of the most fascinating characters on TV not only because of what he does it is mostly because of how he does it. He swears, yells and fights but not to the point where it is out of control and he is just doing it to bully the other person. He knows when to stop and when it is appropriate and that control is what I think other characters lack in.moreless

    Gordon Ramsey knows Kitchens!!

    By houbou, May 25, 2007

    What's to say.. I used to be a cook and I mean a professional cook for about 10 yrs. Today, I'm a web developer, a professional one to boot.

    I remember my days in the Kitchen and Gordon Ramsey, to me, is the man who truly has the plan!

    He knows his way in a kitchen, he has an understanding and a mastery of the kitchen which is just amazing.

    I'm not always in agreement with his recipes mind you, but when it comes to work flow, management and attitude, this man has it down pat.

    The restaurants he targets should be privilieged to have this guy coming around, helping them to get back on their feet.

    And the fun part is, as an individual, he's got the charisma and the saavy to be very entertaining.

    He's not a boring person, he really gives life to his show. And..woah.. we learn stuff too! :)

    So he uses the F word a bit.. Big Deal.. Doesn't make him any less competent for sure! :)

    Curious about what a restaurant Nightmare would consist of. What I found surprised me!

    By elahoda, Mar 07, 2007

    Why bother opening a restaurant if you're just gonna serve re-heated boxed food??? Boggles my mind. But I guess the restaurants featured in this show have hit rough patches and had to do what they could to get as much food out as fast as they could in order to keep any amount of money in.

    Some of the restaurants and the condition of the kitchens were shocking. Some of the chefs were clueless. Granted a few had great intentions and maybe no idea how to go about realizing their dream. A few had little in the way of professional cooking experience or training. I can understand the dream of opening a restaurant of your very own, but if you can't cook, maybe you need to wait till you know how.

    Love the show, heard that they are bringing a version to the US. Can't wait!moreless

    You can learn from this show

    By toptvchefs, Mar 04, 2007

    Excellent post. Ramsay’s kitchen Nightmares is one of my favorite shows. Mainly because it contains a huge amount of practical business advice. Not just for running a restaurant. The lessons Ramsay outlines can apply to any type of business. I’ve watched the show many times on dvd and keep finding new pointers and ideas. Very useful.

    Chef Gordon Ramsay lights a fire under some crappy restaurants...

    By THEJELLYBEAN66, Aug 15, 2006

    I just love this show! I wish there were more episodes per season! Watching Chef Ramsay give it to these less than passionate "chefs" is awesome! His ideas are wonderful and it's easy to see why he is so good at his craft. When will he come to America and do the same here??? I watch this show over and over again...Uh, DVD please?
