cover lots of ground in a short time

I love this show it has three celebrates coming in to talk or to do a funny bit. It has recorded braking stuff. It has jokes, pranks. Lots of real everyday people competing on it. It a single shot show with a great amount of cash to give out but still save the network a lot of cash compared to a different show. In an A+ way

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This moderately entertaining cooking series highlights teamwork, family, friends, and food. However, most of it is committed to filling up live airtime while teams are preparing and serving meals in a studio restaurant, rather than detailing how dishes are being prepared. Gordon Ramsay checks in with teams at certain points, but the conversations are brief and often focus on things that needs to be improved.

Like in the British version, Chef Ramsay does a lot of schmoozing, and the appearance of celebs (many of whom are promoting their own work) is designed to make the show more exciting. But the honest feedback from other diners, most of which isn't shown on camera, is much more interesting. Fans of the original may enjoy tuning in, but diehard foodies may not find The F Word with Gordon Ramsay seasoned well enough for their taste.
