  • Kitchen Nightmare

    9.0
    I have been a chef for twenty years and I can't understand how dirty some of these restaurants are. Where is the Health Department in some of those places ?
  • When is it starting

    8.0
    Any idea when he new season will start.
  • Kitchen nightmares, US series

    1.0
    US season is off my watch list. Typical of US excess, of everything.
  • UK version was way better than horrible US reality TV

    5.0
    The original UK version of Kitchen Nightmares felt more like Gordon was helping turn restaurants around rather than some scripted, edited for better ratings crap. I don't know why he lets a great show like that be transformed into American reality crap. The absolute worst part is the voice over narrator and the out of context editing that comes at every commercial break and throughout the show. The UK version had Gordon doing his own commentary (very little at that) as does most of his other UK shows. Any time redo a show for American audiences the networks assume it has to be some sort of Jerry Springer scripted reality because that's what we want. IT IS NOT!!! I can't believe Gordon Ramsey has let them do this to a good show.moreless
  • After 3 seasons, I cant stand it anymore

    3.0
    Heres the basic formula:

    Day 1: food sucks -> kitchen in disarray -> owner(s) get angry

    Day 2: secret meeting -> frustrations aired -> crying everywhere

    Day 3: free stuff given + new menu -> dinner starts well -> momentary problem -> dinner ends on good note -> Ramsay is a hero



    I noticed this after the first 5 episodes i watched and it was tolerable at first. However, after so long watching the same thing over and over it has become so detestable to me. It is sad, because the BBC version of the show is so good. In the BBC version, almost all the restaurants have different problems and you can really see Gordon Ramsay pull off some great and inventive ideas to pull a restaurant through. You can see things actually changing and feel like the restaurateurs really had to work hard to succeed at the end.



    In the US version, it is entirely ludicrous to believe that all these restaurants are left to their devices after Gordon fixes one problem (almost always being that the owners are in denial/stubborn). Then he gives them a complete remodel of the dining area overnight and after one dinner, leaves them. The show is so formulaic and edited that it is no longer about showing how to run a successful business but rather a cheap and lame attempt at trying to pull at your heartstrings. So typical of american produced reality tv shows nowadays.



    Bottom line, go check out the BBC version. It is miles better than this show.moreless
