Imitation is Not Always Flattery
20 December 2001 | by (Alameda, CA) – See all my reviews

If you've ever seen the original Iron Chef (look for "Ryori No Tetsujin" right here in IMDB), you'll be disappointed in this ridiculous imitation. The bloated Shatner is perfect as the Chairman of this over-the-top bloatation of the original classic. I have to feel sorry for the excellent chefs that subjected themselves to this miserable, execrable, inexcusable waste of time. How can they show their faces in public?

In defense of the chefs, I've eaten at their restaurants before, and they really are top quality masters, especially Roy Yamaguchi. And the dishes prepared by English and the challenger on the show looked pretty darn good. But all the accompanying surrounding nonsense was hard on the eyes and ears and in very bad taste. It was the usual TV hyped-up approach that hasn't worked in the past and ain't gonna work now.

Still, I managed to suffer my way through it, just to say I had done it, but came away with a bitter aftertaste. If any of you idiots responsible for the show are reading this, remember this: it's the food, stupid!!
