Editorial Reviews

12 terrified wannabe chefs compete with the cooking to win a world class restaurant. Gordon Ramsay the acerbic host of the show will challenge and fire the chefs at his whim. Featuring explosive confrontations and compelling intrigue as chefs stab each other in the back to get the ultimate prize. In the end it’s the chef’s skill and their cooking that makes the difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended March 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Chef Gordon Ramsay hosts this reality show fare about 12 Chefs from all around the country who compete for their own restaraunt.He yells,swears,compliments,and most importantly eliminates 11 of them.Only one chef will be standing at the end of this Fox Summer hit.

DVD rating:4/5 This set has a couple of interviews and deleted scenes.All Episodes have uncensored audio track.

I highly recommend this show to anyone who loves cooking,the food network,or just a good ol' competition reality show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is Hell's Kitchen worth it? April 8, 2008
Format:DVD
First off, let me start by saying that I have followed Hells Kitchen since episode one, and it's now in it's fourth season, so it's an honor to get to revisit the show.

Contestants:

1. Michael - Tattooed chef with experience
2. Ralph - Arrogant and can't take defeat
3. Jeff - The wimpy crybaby
4. Dewberry - The large gay male who can't handle much
5. Andrew - The loud mouth of the bunch
6. Jimmie - The clumsey oaf
7. Elsie - Ramsey's pick, started with no culinary experience
8. Carol anne - Never worked in a kitchen
9. Mary Ellen - The quiet mouse
10. Jessica - The lesbian headhunter
11. Wendy - The know it all who knows nothing
12. Chris - The arrogant cocky male.

Ok, lets start with some pros.
Extras - I'm suprised a show like this has them. Altough most of the extra's are made during season 4, they are really wonderful. From the HK tour, to Chef Ramsey's take on each of the contestants. The artwork is wonderfully done. We have a shiny, glossy slip cover that fits over the case with the same art. Another pro, the series was perfect for three discs, we are not going to the menu, and find 2 episodes on each disc, but 4.

Cons :(
The theme song has been changed to an annoying tune that I'm not a fan of.
The extras, although great, are very minimal and are over way too fast
I also hate the package type with 2 overlaying discs on one side, and the third on the other side. You must also remove the discs to read the episode synopsises.

On the Fence
The menu design, we have one menu that displays everything. No episode selection screen, well except for on the main menu
The video quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Been Waiting a Long Time For This April 7, 2008
Format:DVD
I really love Hell's Kitchen, I've been a loyal fan since the beginning and the show is just top notch. Now with the newest season starting its good to get back to basics with the original season with the humble (or not so humble) beginnings.

Because of the idiot "save the children" person below me who doesnt like this show because of the cursing... I wanted to give Hell's Kitchen a better average review.

Anyways... this may be the best reality show I have ever seen. Ramsey may be the best chef in the world... and you GOTTA love his real man personality. Plus... there are times when you see a glimpse of a very sweet man outside of the kitchen.

I love Ramsey and I HIGHLY recommend the show and his books (especially Roasting in Hell's Kithen)

4.0 out of 5 stars Hear the obscenities while you feel the heat! May 29, 2008
Format:DVD
I only discovered Hell's Kitchen as season two was beginning and it immediately became the only reality TV show that I ever made a point to keep up with every week. I'll admit that it's the sheer spectacle of watching the victims...er...contestants survive my idea of hell, working in a restaurant, while attempting to meet Chef Gordon Ramsay's exacting standards that keeps me glued to the tube when this show is on.

Here's the short list of what I love about this show.

First, there's Chef Ramsay's license to abuse people, within a context of course. The context being that one of these people will win a huge prize that they in all liklihood would never obtain on thier own: their own fancy restaurant.

I look at it like cooking boot camp. Sure, the contestants are being continually cursed and screamed at. Of course, we see many hours of real time condensed to a relatively few minutes each episode, so I wonder just how intense it looks "real time". I guess we'll never know, but it's for a purpose and I assume they knew what they signed up for. There's just something about a frantic, frazzled amateur chef being cursed over messing up the risotto that I find hilarious. How difficult is risotto to make, anyway?

Second, it's a cooking show that really isn't about cooking at all, but about working as a team in a "fish out of water" (and into the frying pan) kind of situation where there's fire, smoke, steam, and screaming. How do normal people react in stressful situations? Some rise to the occasion and discover greatness in themselves while others are exposed for the arrogant blowhards that they really are.

Third, those wonderful obscenities!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the timid minded May 9, 2008
By JP
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Gordon Ramsey ever since I saw his shows on the BBC. I was very excited to see the American version come to Fox. Ramsey's claim to fame is to take anyone off the streets and turn that person into an executive chef. His style is similar to boot camp. He breaks you down in order to build you back up. If you are weak, get out of the kitchen now. Ramsey's preference for swearing is not calmed down during this series. This DVD is unedited so you can hear everyone first hand. If you want to see some excitement in the kitchen, this is the program to watch. If you do not like excitement then do not get this product.
