    This week: we get one of those odd semi-reunion shows, only instead of having all season three people, we got a mix of season 1, 2 & 3.

    Favorite bits:

    Tim Gunn commenting on Padma's wardrobe (also liked Tim's 'fan' question)

    the spoof 'judges table' panel where one of the chefs says he left out one of the ingredients because he didn't have enough time, and the faux-judge says "you had 30 seconds"

    the reel of the variations on "It's Top Chef, not Top Sou-Chef"

    Host is lame, interviews can be stupid, and nothing was as hysterically funny as "Project Runway: the Musical" but still, it was a hoot.

    "You had 30 seconds." <snerk>

    Cringeworthy: Harold calling himself a restauraNteur. At least learn how to pronounce your occupation!

    What happened to the "girlfriend" we all knew he didn't really have?: Ilan was the most reactive and the most helpful in chiming in on the definition of Tom's being a "Bear." I would bet that a guy with a "girlfriend" wouldn't be able to distinguish a bear from a twink if you held a gun to his head.

    Thirty minutes in and I changed the channel. Would have preferred a S3 reunion the week before the finale as they have done in the past.

    Agreed, the host is lame.

    For a reunion show it was pretty watchable, and some of the video clips were genuinely funny.

    But I didn't realize it was a filler ep until after I'd settled down to watch, so overall I was pretty disappointed.

    It did seem stupid that we got a clip show this early.

    They had to have some kind of filler in between the ads for new Bravo shows. :p

    This episode took boring to a...whole...nother...level.
    Other than the very brief tribute to Padma's lack of clothing.
