Hell’s Kitchen (Season 10)

Standard

Hell’s Kitchen is one of the shows I would like to stop watching but won’t. Though the format is somewhat of a pattern, the personalities on the show always keep things interesting. As I watched the first two episodes of season 10, I came up with a set of rules that contestants should but don’t follow:

1. Learn to cook scallops.

2. Do not serve raw fish.

3. Never say “I’m probably a better chef than Chef Ramsay.”

4. Learn to cook beef wellington.

5. Do not say “You are so lucky we’re not in the hood.”

6. If Chef Scott hands you a potato puree, check that it’s not cauliflower.

7. Don’t cook 6 fish if only 3 have been ordered.

8. Don’t make statements like “Men cook better than women. It’s a proven fact.”

9. Perfect your signature dish.

10. Don’t get drunk the night before a challenge or a service.

Now, if only I knew how to cook, I swear I could win!

Fall Premieres

Standard

You should be SOOO excited for September television! Here’s a line-up of the many shows starting their latest seasons this month:

September 16:

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 6 of the strangest show out there! Watch the gang screw up everything possible and laugh till your sides hurt!

September 20:

How I Met Your Mother: Will we ever find out who Ted’s wife is? Will Barney get MORE awesome? Every moment of this amazing show is worth the wait!

House: Everyone loves the snarky Dr. House and his sexual tension with Cuddy. What will happen this season? My guess is that it’s not Lupus!

Chuck: Never a dull moment with Agent Chuck Bartowski and his gorgeous handler and sometimes girlfriend Sarah. Watch it for the laughs and imagine that maybe you too could be an agent.

September 21:

Glee: Are you a Gleek? The upcoming season is said to be even more intense (and previews indicate lots of love drama!) with even more amazing songs!

Biggest Loser: Another season to cheer on intense weight-loss, falling in love with contestants, and watching Bob and Jillian kick butt!

September 22:

Hell’s Kitchen: Cooking and swearing? okay!

September 23: (Best day ever? My DVR might explode)

Bones: Bones and Booth will reunite after a year apart.. but Booth is dating some blond? Watch the two solve crimes with plenty of sexual tension and hilarious lines from the rest of the group!

Fringe: The premiere that I’m most anticipating, “Fringe” will be back to rock our worlds. Is Olivia alright? How will she get back? And when will she and Peter become a couple?? Can’t wait!

My Generation: A brand new show that documents high school graduates in 2000 and then again in 2010 to show how big of a difference 10 years makes. Hopefully this is done well: like a drama version of “High School Reunion.”

30 Rock: Will Liz find love? Let’s watch the awkwardness begin!

Community: One of the funniest shows out there, check out sexy Joel McHale as Jeff Winger- will he choose Britta or Michelle? (Britta I hope!), will all of the “students” continue at community college?, and will Abed and Troy continue to be the best pair on television?

The Office: Watch Steve Carell’s last season on “The Office” and decide whether or not you will watch once he leaves!

The Big Bang Theory: Can Leonard and Penny ever really be together? Will Raj, Howard, or even… Sheldon get a girlfriend? Let the brilliant wit continue!

Sh*t My Dad Says: Based on the hilarious blog and starring William Shatner, I am still undecided if this show will be hilarious or fail miserably. Let’s watch and see!

September 26:

Bored to Death: If you have HBO, you should be watching this hilarious but dark show starring Zach Galifinakis and Jason Schwartzman!

The Cleaveland Show: A bit lame spin-off of “Family Guy” but it has the same heart. I find it a nice treat before bed.

Family Guy: Will the show continue to be as hilarious as ever?

Simpsons: The beloved Simpsons family is still on the air! Let’s watch them never age!

September 27:

The Buried Life: Season 2 of this amazing Mtv show follows a group of 4 friends completing tasks on their bucket list, having fun, and helping others. Hilarious and a feel good hit!

What are you most excited about? Did I miss any of your favorites?


Hell’s Kitchen (finale)

Standard

Alright, I know that I said I don’t like Chef Gordon Ramsey in my previous post about “Kitchen Nightmares” but somehow I got sucked into this season of “Hell’s Kitchen.”

16 contestants compete to become head chef at the Savoy Hotel in London.  As usual there was a lot of drama, some great chefs and some terrible ones, and a whole lot of cussing from Ramsay. I won’t comment much on the show in general (if you’ve seen 1 episode, you’ve seen all 7 seasons!) but I will say what a wonderful top 2 contestants were left.(SPOILERS) Both Jay Santos and Holli Ugalde are great chefs as well as wonderful people and I truly think it came down to the right 2 people. Ben may be a good chef but he’s also arrogant and screwed himself over with the “back injury.” I was rooting for Jay and Holli (and for a hook-up!!) and I would have been happy for either one to win. In the end, Holli won and I think she’ll do well.

I give it 6 stars! It was a good finale and entertaining but it doesn’t inspire me to watch more seasons or Ramsay shows.
