What did you think of last night's Kitchen Nightmares? YumSugar says, "Last night's Kitchen Nightmares was my favorite episode so far. Unlike the restaurants featured in the past, the folks at Campagnia have the right attitudes. The owner really wants to succeed, the chef is passionate about cooking, and the waiters are capable of doing their jobs. What they lacked was a grown-up outlook to acknowledge the responsibilities of successfully running a restaurant."
Last night's Kitchen Nightmares was my favorite episode so far. Unlike the restaurants featured in the past, the folks at Campagnia have the right attitudes. The owner really wants to succeed, the chef is passionate about cooking, and the waiters are capable of doing their jobs. What they lacked was a grown-up outlook to acknowledge the responsibilities of successfully running a restaurant. With Gordon Ramsay's expert guidance, they learn how to grow up. They are genuinely grateful and eagerly take his advice.
What did you think of the episode? Wouldn't tall, enthusiastic Gene be a great Top Chef contestant? Were you happy the tough-talking waitress won the waiter's competition? Did you laugh when Ramsay called a customer an old bag?

On last night's episode of Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay saved a failing family business from financial and emotional ruin. He made over the Irish Pub, Finn McCool's, where the food was so horrible it made him puke! The chef's arrogant attitude and lack of passion severely affected the success of the restaurant and the morale of his family.
The owner knew that his chef was the reason for their failure, but he refused to fire him because the chef was his own son. His actions got me thinking about the relationships I have with my loved ones. Would I be capable of firing my own family member if it meant financial success and emotional stability? Would you?

Last night's episode of Kitchen Nightmares was certainly a cliffhanger; what on earth happened to Sebastian's restaurant? Sebastian, the delusional owner and chef of the Southern California pizzeria, clashed with Gordon Ramsay over the menu, the food, and the approach towards owning a restaurant. Ninety five percent of Sebastian's conceptual, convoluted menu was reheated, frozen food. After Ramsay simplified things by focusing on homemade pizzas, Sebastian threw a massive temper tantrum, causing chaos and confusion in his kitchen.
What did you think of the episode? Were you outraged by Sebastian's immature and rude behavior? Do you think he reversed Ramsay's changes and went back to the frozen foods and conceptual menu?

On last night's episode of Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay headed to the Olde Stone Mill and found Dean, a very difficult restaurant owner. Dean was totally unwilling to admit that his restaurant was a failure, the food was crappy, and the place was empty. When Ramsay suggested he change the menu completely, to a steakhouse, Dean was very hesitant and rude.
It made me wonder how I would feel if Ramsay came into a joint that I owned. Would it be hard for me to change everything to his liking? How about you?

On last night's episode of "Kitchen Nightmares," we saw two sides of Gordon Ramsay as he made over The Seascape, a moldy Long Island seafood restaurant. He was up to his usual bad boy behavior: yelling about the disgustingly dirty kitchen and cursing about the foul food. He even convinced the owner/manager to fire both the executive and sous chefs! However, Ramsay demonstrated his huge heart when he helped Peter release anger, gain confidence, and confront his feelings towards his dead father and critical mother.
It got me thinking, is Ramsay a good or bad guy? Is he rude just because he cares so much about cooking? What do you think?
Last night on Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon helped turn around a couple's marriage and restaurant. While there were no bugs crawling around in the kitchen, the Mixing Bowl desperately needed Ramsay's aid. The food was a minor problem; the major complication was Mike's horrible management skills. He didn't do his job, stole the waitresses tips, and was an all around pain in the butt. It made me wonder what I would do if I was forced to work with an employee like him.
How about you? What did you think of last night's episode? What would you have done with Mike the manager?
After watching last night's episode of Kitchen Nightmares, I started to wonder just how many functioning restaurant's kitchens are filled with rodents, bugs, and rotting food. How on earth did Dillions/Purnima pass the health inspection? No wonder the case against Ramsay was dropped, Martin the manager was a total hag. Even after the changes I'm still not sure if I would want to dine there. How about you? What did you think of last night's episode? Would you eat at Purnima?
One of fall TV's toughest time slots is Wednesday at 9 p.m. (that's 8 p.m. for you folks in the Central time zone). Tonight, it will be especially tough with two buzzworthy new shows and Mandy Patinkin's swan song on "Criminal Minds" joining the fray. What will you be watching?
Did you watch Kitchen Nightmares last night? I used to think that Ramsay was a complete and total bastard but compared to Peter, the manager of last night's restaurant, Ramsay is as sweet as a lamb. Didn't Peter remind you of a mean gorilla? What did you think of the makeover? Did you think it was a success?
