Gordon Ramsey is NO TALK SHOW HOST

This is an advertisement for other media. Simply put no real cooking or competition and the guests sole purpose is to advance their current projects.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6):
Kids say (3):

While F Word is undeniably an entertaining choice as food shows go, viewers who tune in hoping for helpful tips from Ramsay will be disappointed, since very little time is actually spent cooking (and Ramsay does virtually none of it). Instead, the focus is on Ramsay's gregarious personality and the celebrities who come to visit. The only time instruction is given is when Ramsay visits the home of a culinary-challenged female fan to walk her through making a meal. And he does dirty up his apron a bit when he matches cooking wits with his celebrity guests, who have included the likes of Sharon Osbourne and Joan Collins.

The main concerns here are Ramsay's occasional tendency toward foul-mouthed language and his mercurial personality. But it's unlikely the subject matter will entice many teen viewers in the first place -- this is definitely adult-targeted television.
