Kitchen Confidential

Is anyone planning on watching this tonight? Last night was the first time I had ever heard of it. I am going to give it a shot, but not sure what to expect. I don't even know if it is supposed to be a comedy or drama or what.

I saw the ad. I'm intrigued. What I'm wondering, those, is if this series is based on the book by the same title?

As this is a fictional protrayal with actors playing the parts of food professionals, you can have fun spotting all the things they say and do that are wrong.

HEre's the blurb on Fox re the show:

I love ANthony Bourdain; don't know if he had anything to do with the show's production. Sure, I'll watch and see what it's all about!

Oh cool! I didn't realize it had anything to do with Anthony Bourdain. I guess the title really should have given me a clue LOL. I am a huge fan of Bourdain's so now I am actually looking forward to this show.

DH and I are huge Arrested Development fans so since it's on right after that, I figure I'll give it a try. I never get my hopes up about new shows these days!

I saw it. It wasn't what I expected. I was expecting it to be an hour drama. I wasn't paying much attention to it. But there's nothing that sparks my interest on a Monday night, so I'll probably watch it again.

We are too PAB. That show is very clever. One of the best shows on TV.

I enjoyed Kitchen Confidential last night aside from the main character. Knowing what Anthony is like I found this character completely unbelievable. He was clean cut looking, no tattoos, looks like he was raised with mommy and daddy money, driving a BMW to high school,, etc. Other than that though, I enjoyed watching and will probably watch it next week unless something better comes along.

Lame; over-exaggerated; did anyone laugh at anything? I can't believe Anthony would be proud of this!
