Hells Kitchen?

I see that the new season is on tonight...I've never watched it before. Did anyone watch last seasons? Was it any good?

I really liked it last year and am looking forward to watching it in about 7 minutes!! I also liked this past season's Top Chef on Bravo.

I wasn't going to watch it, thought that Gordon Ramsey was a jerk on the commercials. I watched it by accident when my son came over and put it on. Watched it ever since. I'm excited to see it again. He is hard,but, he knows what he wants in a chef of one of his restaurants. He cares deeply about the ones that don't disappoint him too.

I watched it last year and didn't care for it personally.

Even though the head chef (as I understand it anyway) is accurate for some of the culinary schools (somewhere between Drill Seargent and Executioner) I was so turned off by him that I just quit watching.

I love ****'s Kitchen. Ramsey demands excellance and he can be mean when you screw up but I've noticed that many people who demand perfection can be taskmasters. Watch how nice he is when the winning team gets to go out to dinner with him.

I really enjoy watching the show though. Even though Ramsey is tough, he tries to be fair as well.

Did anyone else notice (if you have seen the 2 hours of it tonight yet) how this group in the kitchen seems to be more inept and the restaurant customers are more obnoxious? Even Ramsey seemed about ready to drive a fist into more than one customer's face.

I watched tonight... but, I don't think I'll be watching again. It's too mean.

It wouldn't be Ramsay if he wasn't insulting contestants AND customers. He is famous for having thrown a famous UK food writer (A A Gill) and his companion (Joan Collins, no less) out of one of his restaurants, after Gill gave a less than glowing review....!

Still, he is a wonderful chef and has trained some of the very best we have - and they all appear to really love him! What can I say, he's a Scot...... tells it like it is, but praises where due.
