  • Interesting if you're really bored

    1.5
    I've gotta say Alton Brown's previous show was much more interesting, "Good Eats" this new show is sort of childish if you ask me. Alton is always coming up with all these sort of crazy childish shenanigans in a effort to make the show more interesting. You don't actually learn anything from watching Cutthroat kitchen as you did with Good Eats. Good Eats ran for more than 10 years! I think that says something about it. I highly doubt Cutthroat kitchen will be running anywhere near 10 years. I like some other people have to agree overall food network shows have gone down hill, they are dramatized and it is difficult to learn much of anything anymore.moreless

  • Crazy Ideas

    Back in the day MTV was the bomb. I wouldn't tune in to it today to save my life because of the content. Food network is going into the same area I find myself tuning in to other cooking channels when stupid shows like cutthrout kitchen comes up. These are not real scenarios. If you want to make it difficult and educational like this was first intended to be then make the problems real come on "standing on pots" while cooking with knives tied to a common string. Lets get real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!moreless

  • What cooking has been reduced to

    1.0
    Food Network is among many of the shows that have been reduced into a popularity contest. Too many obnoxious personalities like Giada, Ina, Guy, Bobbi, etc. focus way too much on ratings rather than educating the viewers on how to improve in the kitchen.



    What do I have to say about this show?



    For starters, I used to respect Alton Brown, but he's become rather unrecognizable- flanderized with hate, and sadism, rather than being the creative, eccentric food genius we've come to love on FN. Think about it: "Cutthroat Kitchen" murder in the kitchen? Anyone's guess. My initial thought is the fact that there was literally going to be some violence, but instead Alton transforms it into physiological horror:



    1. Ridiculous time limits:

    -compared to Chopped, you can utilize as much of the ingredients from into your dish, now in Cutthroat Kitchen, you have literally a minute to collect your ingredients from the pantry before the door closes- what's the point in that?



    2. Cheated out of the winning money. i find it ironic that he forces the contestants to bid at high prices, and return the money to him. I mean, $25,000 is a pretty good prize money, but the average contestant who wins leaves with about less than half that amount.



    Sabotage is a cheap-shot, Alton.



    You of all people would realize that cooking isn't about incapacitating your competitors, it's about using your skills to create a wonderful, delicious, creative dish.





    Overall, this show is a pointless schlock that tries too hard to incorporate game-show tactics with legitimate cooking. In an actual kitchen, nobody will switch out chef knives for plastic ones. Nobody is going to make you squash grapes with your bear feet - that crap simply doesn't exist. This doesn't teach you about cooking, it only purports to depict humans as cruel assholes.
