    Whilst I don't usually watch this sort of malarky, I must admit it was excellent viewing.

    Catch it if you can next week; he doesn't fuck about.

    Watched it last night. Very entertaining the head chef was an unbelievable chancer. Not a fn clue!

    At one stage I thought Ramsay was going to take a meat cleaver to him, if he could have found one under the mess.

    great show, and a lesson to anyone who tries to blag their job.

    Better than the usual run of fly on the wall documentaries, but I couldn't help thinking that some of it was a bit scripted.

    and at the end:

    the person who came out of it worst was the woman owner of the place

    fair play to the young lad for blagging his way in to a job he obviously couldnt do

    but what a silly bitch employing him and gambling all her money on a lad who clearly couldnt cut it

    superb display of swearing by Ramsay though....

    When he came back must have been so embarrassing for the chef!

    Best telly of the evening!

    That "head chef" was a ligging tosser. I couldn't believe he couldn't make an omelette without fucking it up, even my other half can just about manage that.

    Good telly though. Funny that the bloke went to work down the road for the competition as a junior chef!

    Disapointed in the title of this program.

    Thought it was quite misleading.

    Expected the crinkle-faced arse to be laid down on a couch while he told a nodding psychoanalyst about his visions of:

    o) Testicles being bitten off my under-cooked clams

    o) Face slipping off into the soup after being loosened by the steam

    o) Having to cut off his own hands to serve to a guest because they'd ran out of boiled dog

    They've only done 4 shows for this series by the way, which is probably all Ramsey could handle.

    The Classic bowl of whipped cream over head of tosser bit was pure class.

    Channel 4, bless 'em.

    I actually used to think GR was a complete tosser, but I can see his point now. If he changes just ONE of these fucking horrible poncy restaurants ripping their customers off into a decent eaterie he gets my vote as a decent human being.

    If Gordon Ramsey can cook as well as he can swear, my god, he must be a cracking chef.

    Best bit was the saying Ramsey had taught the idiot.

    Ramsey: When it's brown, it's cooked. When it's black it's....

    Idiot chef: Fucked.

    we once had a german intern who asked how many swear words you could put together in one sentence in English, the best we could come up with was "fuck you, you mother fucking fuck" (which he was impressed with) think he probably would have come off with a better one had he gone to work for Gordon Ramsey

    I haven't seen the programme, but I still thing GR is a complete tosser. He can give it, but he can't take it. Did you seem him on Room 101? Paul Merton wasn't even having a go at him and he got completely flummoxed. He's still a muppet of the highest order in my book, and the fact that he can swear at other muppets doesn't change my opinion of him.

    I'll try to catch the programme next week though.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Nah, he's cool.

    He's a self made millionaire at the very top of his profession who knows untold fantastic and imaginative ways of swearing.

    I loved it. Funniest thing I've seen on TV in ages.

    It was excruciating to watch at times, though. I felt simultaneously very sorry for the poor kid, as he was being harangued, and also like he should be whipped and boiled. He essentially pissed that poor woman's money and restaurant away.

    At the same time, she was a complete waste of space too. Who the fuck thinks a 'fine dining' style restaurant will be wanted in somewhere like West Yorkshire?

    Hence my favourite moment: Ramsey chucking the 'head chef's' scallop dish in the river. :)

    Parts of it are quite Tory, though, remember that. The Adult Embryo (William Hague) is from Yorkshire, after all.

    Depends on the age of inhabitants, too. Mrs Retroid comes from a small seaside town in East Yorkshire and it's almost exclusively Tory there. Her family hated that! ^_^

    I think the idea with the steak pie was to demonstrate that a simpler menu would work better than a menu designed by a chef purely for his own ego. The menu didn't fit the restaurant and it didn't fit the clients, otherwise the place'd be full.

    Ramsey said as such and to take it as a regional slur is probably being a bit stupid.

    Aaaaaaanyway, saw the trailer for next week and some bloke offers to take the argument outside! This'll be an interesting one.

    To be honest I found the last 2(?) a let down after the classic first episode!

    It was more of a gentle finish to the [short] series this week. Shame, that first episode was an absolute corker!

    Ahh well, it's been a good series.

    Cheers! /swigs corked wine
