I'm not enjoying this season as much as previous ones. Maybe it's the change with the sous chefs. I don't know, just not feelin' it.

I didn't like the twist of the sous chefs this season. If the idea was to have the sous chefs cook with their chefs, then do that, but to have them competing - which apparently wasn't even their choice. I didn't even bother to go to Bravo to watch them after the first two or three shows.

There is little competition or excitement but it is fun to see what they create. The styles and skills also liven up the programs. I will continue to watch to the end!

This is the last season of Top Chef Masters I intend to watch. It was never a great show, but the first two seasons were palatable. I think I've figured out what isn't working.

It's entertaining and interesting to watch the original Top Chef show -- their younger/newer, early-in-their-career but promising chefs tackle what I'd call STUNT-COOKING e.g. ingredient game-show (use all ingredients chosen by chance), cooking for toddlers' u nrefined palates, carving their ingredients out of ice blocks and cooking for dog sled teams, cooking with one hand tied behind their back (literally or figuratively) aka inferior equipment/in a strange kitchen/at high altitudes/on a train/on a cruise ship/at a wilderness campsite, etc. The Top Chef chefs have the combo of naivete (or lack of self-consciousness) and enough hunger for advancement (or at least exposure) to make for good, and sometimes great, reality TV.

It is NOT fun to watch STUNT-COOKING on Top Chef Masters (e.g. the whole sous chef debacle, aka ridiculous handicap) with established chefs who are very concerned about protecting their reputation and/or brand, and it is NOT fun to watch the judges damn with faint criticism while trying not to make established chefs look bad (otherwise they'd never get any decent chefs on the show.) The judges looked pained doing this show, as if they'd rather be anywhere but where they are.

Top Chef Masters has always been awkward, but never as much so as this season. Trying to "spice up the show" with the sous chefs has just intensified the awkwardness. I think that Top Chef Masters is dragging down the Top Chef brand. While I'm sure those involved like the check, it looks like they enjoy their work less than ever.

Let me be clear - the show is excellent, but the service is not. We have experienced this with other Amazon season downloads in the past, but this is the longest delay yet. Episode 2 of this season was aired on Wednesday, we have paid for the entire season in advance, but Amazon has yet to release the episode two days later.

Unfortunately, there are not a lot of options for downloading this program, so Amazon may be your only choice. I only wish it were more timely and reliable.

I love this show.

I am also super impressed with Amazon on this one. At the beginning of the season it took them a few days to get new episodes posted, but by episode 3 or 4, they were up within hours of the broadcast. Thanks Amazon!!

I'm a sucker for top chef master's. There's a sense of respect and happiness that makes it fun to watch and much less about people fighting than other reality shows. So far, this season is excellent.

It used to be my favorite food show, even better than Top Chef. But it's become too personality driven and too gimicky. It's no longer about the food and the kitchen skills. I'd watch it on Prime, but not willing to pay per view on Amazon Instant Video. Love Gail Simmons, but the producers are messing this one up -- big time!
