Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell And Back is a reality series where the celeb chef helps failing restaurants with 24-hour transformations and his patented tough love. As is the case with most of Ramsay's shows, there's lots of yelling, screaming, and bleeped cursing (mouths blurred). Drinking (wine, hard liquor, cocktails) is frequently visible, and occasionally people can be seen smoking cigarettes.
Is It Any Good?
This predictable reality series follows the traditional formula of Gordon Ramsay shows, which features the chef working with folks to save their restaurants. As is tradition, while he works with managers, chefs, and staff, he reminds them that he's not only helping their bottom line, but saving clientele from potential food poisoning when revealing some of the more disgusting conditions. Through the process, he uses his profanity-filled brand of tough love to do it.
It isn't particularly original, but 24 Hours To Hell And Back underscores the fact that social media has given the chance for customers to be vocal critics. This makes it necessary for restaurants to work extra hard to keep them happy if they want to remain in business. Overall, there are some positive endings here, but you may not want to watch these transformations while eating.
