Is It Any Good?

It's one thing to have an intriguing premise, but it's another thing for that premise to remain exciting after a season's worth of episodes. Crime Scene Kitchen has a sharp hook, as teams of chefs try to figure out what happened in a kitchen before they got there. But it feels like the series is simplified to the point where the premise becomes dull. The "crime scenes" only feature desserts, which puts a limit on the types of ingredients and techniques that are seen. Contestants still have a tough time cracking the puzzles, but because baking is such a specific skill, it's easy to see right away which teams are good and which aren't. For a show about solving mysteries, it's unfortunately light on suspense.
