This is by far the best reality TV show by far. Would be interesting to see a litany of bars that were rejected for saving by John Taffer. Also, how about a follow-up show on bars one-year after the makeovers. A very entertaining series.

Bar Rescue is a great business makeover show because Taffer knows what makes businesses work, and understands how they can fail. This episode is the best example of how "wanting to own my own bar" and actually being successful are two different things -- just because you like pirates doesn't mean everyone else does, and it certainly doesn't mean you can make money off of it. And thats what business are supposed to do - make money. Deny that and you're an idiot or delusional, or both.

This show keeps me wanting more & more. Jon Taffer is a no-nonsense straight shooter and is the best in the bar/restaurant business. The show is very well produced and educational but combined with Jon's "direct" approach, it is fun to see an entire business transformed in 3 days. I highly recommend it!!

I watched every episode and this one was my favorite. A woman 900K in debt would rather go down in flames for her pathetic adult fantasy of playing pirate every day, instead of being responsible and embracing the (miraculous) help Taffer gave her to dig her and her family out of their hole. Taffer is a genius, he set her up to make a boatload of money and had she been able to behave like a responsible adult even briefly she'd have taken the responsibility to work for a year or two and make back the money lost and maybe cram a few hundred grand more in a bank account. It'd be one thing if all she did was screw herself, but to hear she was dragging a child through this was horrifying. Taffer put it in a nutshell when he said "Would you rather be able to put your child through college, or would you rather just play pirate every day?" She threw her kid under the bus to avoid growing up herself. She put her pride over her family. People like that shouldn't be allowed to have children. Once out of her hole she and her moron (big baby) husband could put their diapers back on and play adult child again. It wouldn't have taken all that long. But no, too proud, stubborn and immature to face reality, they didn't even try for one day. Extremely entertaining I must say, I've now watched this episode four times.

Bar Rescue is a series that currently is running on Spike. The basic premise for the series has Jon Taffer, a bar consultant, helping failing bars improve to avoid closing for good. This typically involves repairing worn or out of date design schemes and revamping bar food and drink menus (and teach bartenders the basics in a lot of cases).

This series has a lot in common with shows like "Kitchen Nightmares" and "Restaurant Impossible": Taffer comes in and gives the owner a necessary kick in the butt. I will say that he is good at what he does. If bar owners are receptive to his advice, sales and earnings typically show big improvements. He also seems like he really wants the featured bar owners to succeed.

This is a great show for marathon viewings, which Spike typically has when new episodes are premiering. A few weeks ago me, my girlfriend, and her younger brother and father all spent our Sunday afternoon vegging out with this series. Can't wait until new episodes start up again in July of 2013!

Another season, more stubborn owners. More of Mr Taffer having to argue his point to make these people realize that he knows what he is talking about and can make them money if he follows what he knows. Yes change is hard, but when what you have been doing hasn't been working and your a month or less from loosing everything then what do you have to loose? Especially when they've called him in? I love his no non sense attitude, how he cares about the products and the very real possibility of people getting sick from a dirty kitchen. He has a passion for what he does and doesn't settle for anything less then perfection.

I love the way season 2 continued to define itself and bring on more experts. Jon Taffer is tough, (my spouse once compared him to Judge Judy) but KNOWS his stuff! Ironically, his advice is common sense but most of the bar owners are just idiots that completely lack common sense! Perfect example is the Pirate owners, Wait until you see this season's update on them--you won't believe their stupidity! Jon, please do more update shows and I'd love to see a behind the scenes special on how bars are selected, and the whole process involved in Jon deciding which bars are worthy of his expertise! Just a suggestion!?!

We love this show. At times, those who are recipients of help are aggravatingly stupid but that is all part of the entertainment value of the show. It does get stuck in a bit of a rut where the host changes the name of each bar but I can understand that as a way of changing the perception of the place with previous customers. It is the same basic concept as Restaurant Impossible or Kitchen Nightmare with a focus on making over bars.
