Listen, I get the rap on Top Chef Masters. It's the antithesis of what reality shows are supposed to be: The contestants are uniformly professional and civil to each other (the only real drama came from mixing in Top Chef firebrands like Dale last week), the dishes never approach the sublime disasters on its sister show, and even if the chefs completely botched the job, the panel of critics were determined to let them down gently. After all, they're playing for charity dollars and haven't come on the show to have their well-established (and well-earned) reputations sullied. In other words, it's too nice a show. There's no drama.
