Editorial Reviews

NTSC/Region 0. Four DVD set containing Series 1 and Series 2 of the UK edition of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. There are a million ways to ruin a restaurant, but only one man has the audacity to attempt a rescue: Gordon Ramsay. In his storied career, Ramsay has earned 16 Michelin stars and launched culinary successes around the globe. This International Emmyr-winning series gives him one week to bring foundering restaurants back from the brink of collapse. Dishing out heaping helpings of truth--liberally peppered with profanity--Ramsay goes eyeball to eyeball with lazy chefs, surly servers, and clueless owners, sharing his unbridled passion for food and hard-won business acumen. And he always returns later to see whether his interventions have worked. Part comedy, part drama, and all reality, these Kitchen Nightmares give a strikingly unglamorous glimpse into the inner workings of restaurants and the people who run them.

To be straight forward, if you like the American Kitchen Nightmares, you will LOVE the British Kitchen Nightmares 5x more.

A couple of negatives - the sound quality could have been better overall.

I was a little confused as to how many episodes and how many seasons of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares this disk set includes. Considering the low price, I decided 'what the heck' and bought it anyway. And I think it's definitely worth the price.

This set includes 4 disks:

-Disk One includes 4 episodes from Season One, each episode with a 'revisit'. It includes Ramsay's very first "kitchen nightmare" - Bonapartes.
The revisit episodes do include quite a bit of the original episode, including when Ramsay first revisits 1-3 months later, but I think these are worth watching as they show the restaurant several months to a year down the road as well. I just skipped through the scenes I had already seen in the first episode, so I didn't end up watching everything twice.

-Disks Two and Three include 8 episodes of Season Two, including my personal favorite, "Momma Cherri's". Disk Two has two revisits and Disk Three has no revisit episodes.

-Disk Four includes 4 episodes of Season Three, including two more revisits.

Altogether, you are getting 16 episodes with 8 revisits.

I saw two different regions listed for this disk when contemplating purchasing it and was a little confused with that as well - FYI, this disk IS coded for U.S. DVD players.

Once again, I think this is a great buy for the price and you get the 'best of' episodes from the first 3 seasons.

One last note - this is the unedited version, which is actually a lot more enjoyable, but keep this in mind if you have small children around, who are likely to pick up a cuss word or two from Chef. =)

conflicting reviews? I know I was so here ya go:

First of all, the Amazon "editorial review" is incorrect. This set includes Series 1, 2, and 3.
That is essentially Seasons 1-3 in US terms. Don't know why the producers of this DVD collection
deemed it necessary to label it Vols.1-2 cause that makes no sense. Anyway, on to the individual
discs.

Disc One contains the original Episodes 1-4 from Series 1. They are:
1) Bonaparte's
2) The Glass House
3) The Walnut Tree
4) Moore House

Each of these episodes is approximately 49 minutes in their entirety, and they are accompanied by
yet another episode titled "Revisit" where Gordon returns to survey his handiwork at each restaurant.
Likewise, these episodes are also about 49 minutes, but they include only about 7 minutes of new
footage per at the end, the rest being a condensed version of the original airing. But, there are
still 8 "episodes" in Disc 1.

Disc Two:
1) Lanterna
2) D-Place
3) Momma Cherri's (Plus a revisit "episode")
4) La Riviera (Plus a revisit "episode")

Disc Three:
1) The Sandgate
2) Clubway 41
3) Oscar's
4) La Gondola

Discs 2-3 represent the original BBC Series 2.

Disc Four: (Series 3, or Season 3 to us Yanks)
1) La Parra de Burriana (Plus revisit)
2) The Fenwick Arms (Plus revisit)
3) Roccoco
4) Morgan's

Now before you ask, there are two more abbreviated Series (Seasons) that consist of 8 more
episodes but to date they have not been released in the US so don't bother looking on Amazon,
you'll be disappointed. They are however available in the UK and Australia so maybe we wont
have to wait much longer.

Everybody who has commented needs to understand that British television does not have "Seasons" they have "Series" and they are not the same. American television is based on seasons usually running from Sep/Oct through Apr/May. British shows have no specific airing schedule nor length. The British Kitchen Nightmares Series 1 (Season 1 to Americans) only consists of 4 episodes; Series 2 is 8 episodes; Series 3 is 4 episodes; Series 4 is 6 episodes; and Series 5 is 8 episodes. To better understand this check out Internet Movie Database [...].

This is NOT the American version THANK GOD. These where done years ago in England where the episodes where an hour long (45 minutes with commercials) In these Ramsay is the narrator giving first hand insight that the American kitchen nightmares DRASTICALLY needs.
To be straight forward, if you like the American Kitchen Nightmares, you will LOVE the British Kitchen Nightmares 5x more. And if you HATED the American Kitchen Nightmares you will LOVE the British Kitchen Nightmares.

ONE important thing. The item I ordered said volume one and two BUT there is at least one more volume that has some of the even better episodes

Love this show! I started watching on BBC America and got hooked. This DVD is great because it has seasons (series) 1 and 2 with revisits. There are scenes which are deleted from the BBC America versions (presumably for time), which is a nice addition. Plus no bleeping!

There's not much in between with Gordon Ramsey. I used these films to teach encouragement and leadership. How to be an encourager. Ramsey style is one of critical caring that isn't easily recognized when a person is on the receiving end. But you realize how much he cares. Doesn't always come to you until you are pulling out of the parking lot after viewing one of the episodes.
