Is It Any Good?

Attempting to go beyond the status quo, this was the first cooking competition show to repeatedly pit top-level chefs directly against one of the biggest culinary celebrities around. And, as you might expect, that means every episode of Beat Bobby Flay has a whole lot of talk about just how great Bobby is -- almost an exhausting amount of it. The saving grace, though, is the food, especially in the "signature dish" round. The dishes are not only mouth-watering but also teach viewers a lot about traditional meals from around the world. In later seasons, the addition of famous guest judges just adds to the fun. And, in case you're wondering, Bobby Flay does sometimes get beat -- about a third of the time, actually.
