Hell’s Kitchen Post Mortem
Tuesday, August 15, 2006 | posted by Mike
Last night’s two-hour episode put a lid on this, the second season of Hell’s Kitchen. I’m assuming that you all saw it (or that you made a conscious decision not to see it), so I’m not feeling up to recapping the whole thing. If you want a full accounting of what happened, check out Foodite’s recap.
A couple of thoughts do come to mind, though:
All right. Time to get ready for the next season of Top Chef.
- At the risk of incurring the wrath of Adam over at Men in Aprons, I have to admit that I’m now officially a Gordon Ramsay fan. I was on the fence for a while, but the last line of the show (which is also the title of Foodite’s recap) pretty much solidified the fact that Ramsay is in on the joke, and that he has a good sense of humor behind all of the bluster. Again, I know some of you feel differently. Feel free to rip me in the comments.
- They have already announced that there will be a third season. Judging by the way Fox likes to capitalize on its reality shows (see: American Idol), we can probably expect the next season to debut in about six weeks.
- Virginia is just plain dumb. Why would you choose people who you know don’t like you, then proceed to tell them that they were chosen because they were “weak?” Did you really think that you were going to get them to give full effort by promising them some money? Plus, Tom was a complete waste of space. Actually, he was worse than a waste of space because he managed to cut himself, thus creating a distraction and having to leave his station. Is it any wonder that Heather won because Chef Ramsay thought she had control over her kitchen?
