Chef!
4 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great comedy, all three seasons I highly recommend. They have a way of having a comedic idea coming back at the very end of the show to leave u smiling. Season three focuses more on the characters but is still very enjoyable. Its a bargain, and is well worth the money. Its so much better than today's I see it coming comedies, It is much sharper, appeals to maybe a somewhat more intelligent group. My only complaint is its only was 3 seasons, a chefs hat off to Lenny Bruce and the whole cast. Gareth is quite mad at times, Janice can't seem to get enough attention from him, Everton is a riot. The show is so much more than its kitchen name might imply.
