Kitchen Nightmares

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

Do any of you watch Kitchen Nightmares? It’s on Fox, Wednesday nights at 9. The basic premise is that Gordon Ramsay (of Hell’s Kitchen) visits restaurants that are failing and attempts to find out what is going wrong. It’s completely addicting because he finds things like severe bug infestations, rotten food, and cooks picking things off the floor and putting them back in the pan. And all the while, the head chef at the restaurant is all affronted that Gordon is giving them suggestions, and how dare he suggest that they might not know what they are doing?
It’s completely predictable– the food sucks, lots of fights ensue, Gordon fixes it and everyone goes home happily ever after. Even so, I’m completely hooked! I go to bed late every Wednesday night because I simply must stay up and watch the end. The only thing that drives me crazy is that at the end of the show, they give you a preview of next week’s restaurant. And every.single.time the announcer says, “This might be Gordon’s greatest challenge yet!” No kidding? You said that last week, and the week before that, and the week before that… How about we say “Hey, they’re all difficult!” and find something more specific to say?
