I finally sat down and watched Kitchen Nightmares last night. I was quite disappointed. It seems that Fox sucked out all of the charm of the original series as seen on BBC America and has instead gone for flashy.
The addition of a narrator just goes to show that the storyline is so convoluted one is actually necessary. The awarding of materials (such as a new kitchen) is more Extreme Makeover: Home Edition then needs be and that deprecates the spirit of personal cost to the owners during the transformation.
Luckily, this makes one decision easy for me.
I am not saying I won't watch Kitchen Nightmares at all. I am sure there will be a repeat period along the way that will allow me to take a sneak peek and give the show a second chance.
I just doesn't get a coveted spot in "my" fall line-up.
