Bonus: Biography of Gordon Ramsay
No wonder this won an International Emmy Award. Part comedy, part drama, and all reality, this show gives a strikingly unglamorous view into the inner workings of restaurants and the people who run them. Ramsay shows his unbridled passion for food and hard-won business acumen. The U.K. series is far superior to the US version, more honest less polished, all real! Can't wait for Season three!"

"The US version of KITCHEN NIGHTMARE'S is a huge hit and honestly what introduced me to Mr. Gordon Ramsay. I have been enthralled since by his personality, talent, skill and passion with food. With this dvd all I can say is it is amazing how much better the British version of this series is. And this season is even better than the first. The show is all Ramsay from voiceover to his full involvement with each restaurant he visits. These restaurants are in trouble and have asked for his help. The candor, wit and intelligence with which he proceeds with each new venture is enthralling. He is able to identify problems immediately and allows us, the viewer, to see what goes on behind the scene in many restaurants. He provides his usual tough love and takes each establishment with its owners/workers on a reality check. Sometimes he comes across tough egos or wimpering weaklings but bottom line is that with his usual dedication and true caring passion he helps all to see the light. The thing with Gordon Ramsay is that he is known for his slight foul mouth but this is who he is and when he speaks it is the truth.
He helps each restaurant identify problems, helps make things better but does not leave it at that. He tries to make them truly understand the nature of the problems so that they can go on succesfully after he leaves. The viewer can't help but get truly caught up in Ramsay's truly caring dedication to help these people. This show could be gimmicky and make an emphasis of only shoewing sickening things in bad restaurants. We do see much that is bad but only as long as it is necessary. Gordon will try to make a different life for these people. One worker in a restaurant said he was sent from above. It can seem that way. Thes restaurants are on the verge of closing and clueless. Ramsay has much skill and knowledge and can make them see the light. Through his typical tough love and candor he reaches that deep spot that is most effective.
I can't get enough Gordon Ramsay. Not only does he have the craft and knowledge but a hugely entertaing personality that adds a wallop of fun to each episode. I find all Ramsay's shows addictive and this one is the absolute best. I highly recommend this show and this season. Also, I love how British tv spends less time censoring as we do. it helps us to truly see the people for who they are."
