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. =)
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
Disc One contains the original Episodes 1-4 from Series 1. They are:
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.
3) Momma Cherri's (Plus a revisit "episode")
4) La Riviera (Plus a revisit "episode")
1) The Sandgate
2) Clubway 41
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)
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.Read more ›
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
