I’m really knocking out the posts tonight. I guess since I haven’t had a chance to blog lately, I have a lot of pent up posts. Over the weekend, I was scrolling through the DirectTV program guide at my in-laws’ house. I came across the last couple minutes of the UK edition of Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. I always wanted to see that one. I enjoyed the US version last year. I hope it comes back. In any case, the few minutes of the UK edition didn’t really do much for me. I guess I’m used to the US edition. There is just something about American pride and arrogance that makes for better TV. You know, the kind of “OK, chef Ramsay, who the hell do you think you are to tell me what to do in my restaurant, despite the fact that I’m failing and you’re like a world class chef and owner of 3000 successful restaurants and a celebrity and a respected authority and all that? Who do you think you are to tell me what to do?” Really, it does make for good television. It’s almost like listening to people call Dave Ramsey to tell him that they have a better idea for paying off debt and want to buy a new car and buy a house on an interest-only mortgage. Dave always asks something along the lines of “How many millions of dollars do you have on that system?”
I’m looking forward to the finale of Hell’s Kitchen tomorrow. For some reason, I like that show too.
