    Wife 2.0 and I have been enjoying this show quite a bit. Definitely more friendly and nicer toned compared to the adults. Not that the drama and b!tch!ness with the adults doesn't make things interesting, it just wears at you after a bit of viewing. With these youngsters, the part that wears and tears on you is seeing them wind up heartbroken over one bad dish that sent someone home.

    It was fun to see the judges have fun with the stiff peaks challenge. The judges took that all in stride too and made it a lot of fun for everyone. :up:

    I'm consistently wowed by these kids. It's just amazing how talented they are. I do wonder what kind of additional resources they are provided that we don't see on screen. When first presented, it seemed like nearly all of the kids were filmed saying that they had never made this before. The chef's offered to answer any questions they had, but is that where the help stopped? If that's all the help they had?'c I imagine that question and answer period was a lot longer than what we saw.

    Still, though, even if there is some help we don't see, to pull something like that off on (what we assume is) a first try is amazing.

    One thing with the Wellingtons is that it was mostly packaged items. Crepe, Puff pastry, mushroom paste, all of that was already made. On the adult edition, they would have to make those parts.

    Plus I figure they are getting some instruction as well.

    I think a) the show is less episodes and b) cutting two at once reduces the stress on the kids a bit. Someone to share your unhappiness with.

    I'm sure what we don't see onscreen are the boring education parts that explain that X ingredient is like Y ingredient and can be used in Z and cooking times/tips. Even with all the help these kids are amazing.

    From what I googled a week or two ago it appears they do have huge advantages with the challenges. But as mentioned, it's still impressive watching these kids execute. I could know what I was going to cook weeks in advance and take cooking lessons, and I'd probably still have problems executing these dishes.

    Oh yeah, how could I forget the stiff peaks challenge? That was pretty funny. You knew at least one of them was going to get it and then when they went a little into 'food fight' mode it was pretty funny.

    I liked how Joe tried to be kind of stern, ahead of time, as he made sure to mention that he gets angry, so he better not get nailed with the cream. Nailed he got. :D

    Even in the adult version, they have cooking classes off camera - so I imagine they have the same thing with the kid version.

    Loved this episode! It was great to see the judges laughing and playing with the kids during the food fight.

    If only the adult version could be this much fun.

    I don't know about (b), but (a) is certainly true - the finale is on November 8. (Bones moves to Fridays (to make room on Monday for Almost Human), and Raising Hope (new episode & repeat in an hour block) returns, on November 15. Enlisted was supposed to start, but Fox moved its premiere to January, which, IMO, is not a good sign.)

    CORRECTION: Originally this said there would be a 2-hour finale on November 1, but Fox has since changed its plans - "Part 1" of the finale is now on 11/1, and "Part 2" on 11/8

    Grrr. I knew I should have waited to watch this episode.

    Now all the stores are closed, and I want chocolate cake. :(

    I dunno. I think Sara started showing signs of what we all hate in the adult version of the show - only we think it's cute on a kid.

    I don't really think so. She wasn't mean spirited or bitchy. The only time I recall her saying anything negative about her competitors was when the judges asked her direct questions to solicit those responses.

    I remain on the fence about Sara. At first she seemed like she was going to be a nasty little thing but she seems to have mellowed. Maybe she initially felt defensive since she's the smallest/youngest one. I really continue to enjoy how these kids have such good sportsmanship.

    I was sad to see the one little girl eliminated this week (d'oh - forgot names - she was the smaller one).

    Dara is her name I think. I didn't think she deserved to go, maybe eliminate Troy instead.
