Love the Top Chef series, and the Masters version is even better. This one stood out because of the friendly rivalry of 2 of the contestants. Not as good for kids, even though they bleep out the swear words, which there seemed to be more of in Season 5...just a warning.

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.

An addictive (and guilty) pleasure of a show. The Top Chef series is the very best of the food competition reality genre. It is beautifully produced. One gets to know the chefs and their passion, and really comes to care who wins and loses. Most important, the viewer really gets a sense of how the food tastes, and learns a lot about cooking terms. Example: arancini are risotto fritters. Even the NY Times doesn't use the right Italian word. There are many other examples. So for fun and for an education about cooking, I can't think of a show that is much better.

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!

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 am certain that there is nothing better than watching people cook and scream at each-other. Just like at your in-laws house if you come from an Italian family! Its better though, because you may get ideas on how to cook better food.

Still not nearly as good as Top Chef Masters Seasons 1 & 2, but better than the one with Traci Des Jardins and co (nothing against her as a chef, that season just wasn't fun to watch). Would recommend to a lover of Top Chef, but would not recommend it be the first season of Top Chef Masters to watch, if you have never seen one.

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.
