    Yeah this is my first time to watch it. I think there have been 3 episodes so far this season, and I have loved it all. I like it better than Hell's Kitchen, which I like a lot. Can't wait for the US version to kick up.

    Yes. As far as I know there has only been three episodes aired thus far on BBCA.

    Episode 1) The spanish beach restaurant
    Episode 2) The Fenwick Arms
    Episode 3) Nick's Bistro @ Ricocos (which became simply Maggies)

    Exactly. In this show he shows why he is such a good restaurateur and actually is not such a tool.

    I caught another one that featured the Moore House. It was painted an awful reddish maroon color.

    I absolutely love this show. The "Fenwick Arms," in particular, was a fun episode.

    Campaign for Real Gravy

    Take a look at his current menu. Looks like he's still got the same prawn cocktail, but is now calling it The Notorious Prawn Cocktail.

    "Prawns don't live in shells!"
    "Yes. Well, they don't live in glasses, either..."

    Great show - and yes, the guy from the Fenwick Arms is a tool!

    If you like Ramsay, you should also check out The F Word. Season three recently finished in the UK and they've been showing them on BBCA on a Sunday night. Not sure when it's starting up again. It's a nice mix of competition and information - along with Gordon's twist on things.

    If you can stand the language, then try the "usual sources". If not, I'm sure it'll do the rounds again. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    I really enjoy the show it is nice to see the other side of ramsey. He is still a bully but is a little nice about it as he said this last episode tough love.

    It is interesting in almost all cases he preaches simpler presentation and just focus on good food.

    I definitely feel like Gordon knows what he is doing, especially in these situations.

    The beach one was funny, when they had all the kabob, and the kabob cooker was making it a day in advance, and they would serve it swinging from a big hook. :)

    Ahh yes. As Ramsay put it, they looked like big swinging donkey d$@ks. I can't believe they were making those so far in advance. And using one big indoor grill... that's just wrong for anything except your average breakfast restaurant.

    will be interesting to see the US version of this show. Can't wait to finally get a chance to see more Gordon (in non-Hell's Kitchen persona)

    One wonders just how many of the restaurants featured in this series survive solely BECAUSE they were featured in this series, regardless of any changes Ramsay might make to the place.

    LoadStar, I think this alone would be a draw for folks to go through the yelling. Having Ramsey as a mentor is a good confidence booster, too. If you can get through with the program that is :)

    Just caught the first three of these on yesterday's Marathon (Spanish Beach Restaurant, Fenwick & Roccoco). I love it! Instant SP. I laughed when he chewed out the chef who served kebabs on an awkward pendulum hanger (in ep. 1) for making his guests "eat from a swinging donkey p3nis!"

    This must be in the top 5 in "bleeps per minute" of all shows on TV!

    IIRC they show the old show again and they have an update where he goes back and visits some time later and see if all the changes he put in effect are working or not and in general how everyone is doing (anyone leave, promotions, ect...)

    It's unfortunate that BBCA bleeps him. I procured and watched the entire series a few months ago (including those showing on BBCA now), and it was awesome to finally hear him uncensored.

    I've been doing this with the F-word but I have to be careful my kids aren't around when I watch it. The other day, my 6-year old asked me why he kept saying that word.

    Ive been enjoying this on BBCA and look forward to the US one in Sept. Does anybody remember what network the US version will be on?

    I rather wish he wasn't censored either because those constant BEEPs can really be irritating!

    I love Kitchen Nightmares. I'm very weary of the American version. They've already had some legal quibbles about what was real and what was staged at one of the establishments Gordon was supposed to fix. We'll see...hopefully it wont be as soap opera like as Hell's Kitchen. (You know...that whole..."and now the continuation of Hell's Kitchen" -- like it's Dark Shadows or something). Ha ha
