If you dislike the online "Last Chance Redemption Kitchen" concept...

...you're gonna HATE the new season of Top Chef Masters starting tomorrow night (Weds 7/24/13)!!

The TV contest will be affected by the online performance of the Chefs' sous chefs. If a sous wins, the MC contestant gets an advantage in the TV show and, if they do badly, the MC gets a handicap!

They're actually trying to FORCE you to watch the online content!!

This kind of stuff is only going to get worse. It's the attempt to get people to watch online content or get an "enhanced experience" by getting the app that's going to kill a lot of shows for people like me who watches later with a DVR.

Oh crap! Thanks for the warning. blech

I was looking forward to TCM, too. Oh well. I'll still watch unless it's just too stupid to handle.

I guess it's like more people enjoy really lame drama. I'm not in that group. I like a straight-forward, fair, contest.

I never watch the online sideshows for these things. Yeah, that too - So many shows now, if you don't watch 'live' (live tv vs recording anyway) have gotten to where you miss out on some stuff. Guess that leaves me out too.

I wish everything didn't have to be about everything else these days. My computers are for computing. My phones are for making/receiving phone calls. My TVs are for watching freaking TV shows/movies. Seems simple enough. Guess not.

Yikes! Do I sound like one of those 'get off my lawn' people?

I hate the online stuff. What if someone doesn't have a computer? My mom watches these shows but doesn't own a computer. It's not right.

Damn it! I have not watched the episode yet, but the online component may make me just dump it.
