    Yeah, didn't understand that decision at all by the judges.

    It was a better storyline to keep David as "the guy who almost blew his advantage" than to eliminate him as deserved and end the storyline immediately, I guess.

    Poor Felix - I think her crying saved her before, then she toughened up and became a non-essential character.

    Oh, so freakin' totally! I couldn't believe that. I got this vibe that they wanted to have 3 guys and 3 girls left. Whatever the fack, bad decision. :mad:

    I'm getting a little sick of the "oh this was so disgusting" kinds of reactions, even though I admit sometimes they're funny (esp on Hell's Kitchen).

    Par for the course on all of Ramsey's American shows (Hell's Kitchen, Masterchef, Kitchen Nightmares). It is so predictable it tends to wear on my nerves, too. All of his shows are horribly formulistic, including his reactions when tasting food, but I still watch 'em all.

    His shows are formulaic because that's what the producers WANT it to be. It's what gets viewers (or so they think).

    I actually wondered why I was still watching Hell's Kitchen this time around because it's always the same thing, but I'm still watching!

    I think it was a producer decision to continue the drama.
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    How does Ramsey have time to actually cook and run restaurants with so many TV shows?
    - for every US show he has a UK equivalent.

    I watched the first couple seasons of Hell's Kitchen, and then in the third season, I realized it was the same script every year, just different faces. It was all so predictable that it was boring.

    Master Chef is pretty much the same deal.

    The same food, too! I get tired of Wellingtons, risotto, and scallops. Sure, they throw something else in there every now and then but the majority of it is the same. Oh, and some fish like John Dori (sp?).

    I've been watching the Australian version and it makes ours look so bad in comparison. 76 episodes a season takes some dedication to watch, but it's way way way way more cooking, much less drama. The biggest plus? It's 100% Gordon Ramsey free!

    Is this and H.K. both on hiatus for two weeks? My Comcast guide has repeats listed for this week and next week.

    They don't want to compete with the Olympics. Based on how crappy the broadcasts have been so far, I don't think the MC and HK numbers would have suffered much.

    On both shows, both weeks, my SP was picking up these episodes also. Weird, but then I'll never figure out how sometimes it doesn't know the dif btwn new and re-airing. I just went in and deleted them. Each week had HK on Mondays, with a two-ep block, and MC on Tues, with a two-ep block (the previous two eps for both).

    My Tivo didn't record MC but it did record HK.

    This is something that happens from time to time with season passes. I figure it has to do with the guide data we don't see.
