Bullshit.

That's all I can think as I'm watching the new Iron chef "battle of the masters"

I seriously think they made Sakai and Morimoto dumb down their cooking to make sure that the american chefs won, and that the torch was passed. I mean looking at what morimoto did it was nothing that was even close to par with his cooking on the original show.

And what the hell was this bullshit with Pucks Pastry chef being on the show? that was BS! His ass didn't even touch the desert, she did it all her damn self.

Bah

Theres also the issue of the american vs the japanese pallet.

However, while the competition itself seems to be bullshit, the production on this show is highly enjoyable. I hope they make a ton of episodes. :)

Oh great production, don't get me wrong... I agree with that... and I'm sure it would allow for great DVD's... it's just that I feel these specific battles shouldn't have been rigged...

I am looking foward to more though..

I do like Alton Brown doing some of the commentary. Though I only saw the beginning of the ep. last night.

Yes, this in and of itself redeems the show in my eyes. I'm such an Alton Brown fangirl. I haven't seen an actual episode yet, but I did see "the making of" last night. At the beginning when he was dressed up as the chairman...kinda disappointed that it wasn't him. But then, I bet this show won't be anywhere near as much fun as his "Scrap Iron Chef" was.

I'm not so thrilled with their choices of chefs. It would have been nice to see people who weren't Food Network regulars. Mario is ok, don't care about Puck, but I hatehatehate Flay. At least they didn't pick Emeril.

Anyone see the other American version of Iron Chef, the one with Shatner? Food Network decided that it never existed, that much was clear from the special.
