    Re: Kitchen Nightmares

    My daughter and I watch it religiously. We even watch the original on BBC america. We love him!. Thats about the only show I can get her to sit down and watch with me. I know people say he is mean but I dont think so. I think he is honest. And it doesnt hurt that he is really, really attractive. :laughing: From what I read in tv guide this week should be very good.

    I used to watch the BBC one all the time, but I do think he has gotten a little bit more "mean" on the American one! I am sure it is for ratings or that they cut it together so it looks worse. But I do think the American version is a bit more confrontational than the BBC one.

    I do still like the original BBC version better than the American one. It seems like he was more invested in the results, instead of "playing" a character. It seems to me has gotten feedback from producers that "They love you being an a**hole .... just do it every chance you can!!" And I wouldn't doubt that the restaurant owners are also being egged on by producers to get as upset as possible.

    Its a TV show starring Gordon Ramsey.

    I actually watched Kitchen Nightmares tonight. I was glad that Irish Family was able to keep their business they seemed liked nice people.

    I watch all of Gordon Ramsey's shows, if possible. I like his honesty and his style. Now, if all the local health inspectors were as brutally honest when they inspect restaurants....... :wave:

    Right, thats what I like too. It seems some of the reality shows are to rehearsed or "directed" . With his nightmares show it does not seem like these restaurant owners have time to develop their acting skills. Not to mention some of them are ready to lose their homes and businesses.

    :sunny: I have been watching, but I have to tell ya, as much as I love watching when I see spoiled rotten food and dirty filthy kitchens it just makes me gag. :tongue2: I love seeing the changes that Gordan makes to help them make their restaurants a success. There is always someone that thinks that they already know everything and yet he always seems to be able to get them to come around.

    Re: Kitchen Nightmares

    Okay, who watched Kitchen Nightmares tonight? The episode was about Lela's. Wow...what a arrogantly rude, so-called Executive Chef. Ramsey was correct...the guy was not Executive Chef material. Squeezing Hershey's Chocolate Syrup from a bottle onto his rack of lamb bones :laughing: was hilarious! Fine dining, indeed....

    Of course, I was not too keen on Ramsey's idea of the perfect burger. It was nothing more than meatloaf shaped into a burger and grilled. Yuck! And the owner...yikes. :scratch: She evidently was a pushover, to allow the Chef and his crew (especially Buzzard) to get by with doing so little; and she should have fired Buzzard long ago for theft of food product. Not looked nicely upon in any business, "grazing", or eating food without paying for it at the place you work (whether it be a restaurant or convenience store), is simply theft...and it becomes expensive to the owner at time goes by.
