We have started watching Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares the UK version, there are 5 seasons, then we will go onto watch Kitchen Nightmares his US version

We love it...we watched the first episode and Gordon had us cracking up laughing, he is such a character, swears a lot as we all know, but we like him

Looking forward to watching the whole series

I actually prefer the UK version over the US version. The US version seems very "staged reality TV" with all the fighting and attitude from the owners.

in the early u.k. version, he talks much more softly and curses a lot less than the more recent ones, and certainly less than the american shows.

also, in the early shows, either he had bad makeup people or he's gotten botox since then. i'm not saying that to be snarky, but rather it was just very noticeable.

I agree...I have read Dave, that the US one is not as good as the UK one...as there are so many arguments and upset with all the staff and families, which takes away from the quality of the show

The UK ones are great, we are really enjoying them, they are informative, but also funny in parts, a lot of fun to watch

I tend to watch F1, MotoGP, Tennis & Golf when it's on. Food Network, The Great British Bake Off, Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing on Ice (though 2014 will be the last year, however it's the same thing as SCD, but with torvill & dean & on ice)

But mainly I watch dvd's, as I can have them on whilst doing something else. And I don't feel as if I'm missing anything. Plus my tv signal can really play up. So dvd's are a godsend.

Did you know that Gordon Ramsey is actually really polite & friendly in real life. Meet him once, when I was in the audience of Dancing on Ice

after the way last season ended, i can wait.

sort of like not wanting to hear bad news, besides that ridiculous bad scene of matthew's stupid smile just before the crash.

i hope they don't do that again.

I'm going through Nathan Fillion withdrawal right now. We usually watch the rerun they show at midnight on Sunday nights but we were finishing up a movie at that time. Then tonight they didn't show a rerun during "Castle"s regular time slot because of the 20/20 special. Seriously, an entire hour to mull over what name the royal baby might end up with? Didn't we fight a war a couple centuries ago to get away from the Brits? Oy-vey! I watched the 10:00 PM news...
