I just finished watching every episode on DVD, and must say that I have not laughed that hard at a sitcom in quite a while. I only saw 3 of the 4 episodes when they actually aired, and remember liking the show. Then I forgot about it due to FOX's inability to market a good show.
Anyway, it really is unfortunate that this show didn't get a chance. FOX needs to grow some stones and actually stick with a show that doesn't grab an audience right off the bat. They expect big hits and if a show doesn't attain that status by the first couple episodes, they pull the plug.
Kitchen Confidential is hilarious. Buy the DVD - it's worth every penny. If you do buy it, watch it with friends. Get it out there, even though it's never coming back. The people behind the show put too much work and creativity in this thing for it to just fall completely into obscurity.
