5.0 out of 5 stars Stop them before they kill again! Fox once again cancels a great show, August 2, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kitchen Confidential - The Complete Series (DVD)
"Kitchen Confidential" had the misfortune of being aired in the fall of 2005 just before the end of the baseball season. The pennant and series came along and interrupted whatever audience it had built and it never had a chance to build a committed audience.

This is getting to be routine for the Fox network. Take a great program, market it badly, give it a lousy time slot (why start a new show right before you know you're going to show the World Series?!), show episodes out of order, and then cancel it after just a few shows are aired. One would think that there should be some heads rolling at Fox. (I doubt it.) I digress - it's just infuriating to discover another great program only to discover that some morons canceled it while utter crap remains on the air.

"Kitchen Confidential" shares some of the same basic traits (beyond being canceled) with "Wonderfalls." It's tightly edited, funny, cutting edge, and pushes the envelope for network television. A few tweaks on language and nudity and it could easily be a quality show you'd find on Showtime or HBO. With that in mind, KC is a comedy for adults. If you like the humor on "Boston Legal" you'll probably enjoy this show.

I was going to write a review of this but you literally took the words out of my mouth. The FOX execs should be shot, except shooting someone in the head who has no brain probably won't hurt them.
