I am with you on this jet. that is why I enjoy watching it as well.

Just like with Consumer Reports, I find ATK to sometimes give great advice and sometimes give horrible advice. I do not count on them to give me all the answers, but I do enjoy getting from them what I can and discarding the rest.

Andy, to your point about CK, my opinion is that he is just a bad actor. As Charlie mentioned, the other shows do the same thing, but IMO they get away with it better than Chris because they are better actors. Chris is a jabroni though. I like Julia though. She sometimes puts him in his place.

Well said, GB. As I said, I watch the show. I'm just annoyed by CK. Julia and Bridget(?) are natural. I get the impression the tolerate him because he's the boss.

I read an article about him that suggested he was a tyrant in the workplace.

LOL I get that same impression Andy. I think the show would be so much better if the ladies took over and kicked him out!
