  • Interesting but typical

    8.0
    This episode was a little bland when compared to other episodes. Broccoli as a theme ingredient didn't lend itself to anything particularly innovative (with the exception of broccoli ice cream from the challenger).



    Production tried to add some excitement to the episode by promoting a personal rivalry between the two chefs, but even that comes off a little tame. The two do exchange some trash-talk, but when their words are quoted they each appear more surprised than fired up.



    It's not a bad episode, but it is a little bland.moreless
