Good, but not the original
2 May 2004 | by (new york.) – See all my reviews

FoodTV, after seeing the popularity of Ryouri no Tetsujin, got the rights to make its own Iron Chef show. New Kitchen Stadium, new Chairman (Mark Dacascos) and new Iron Chefs. Bobby Flay, Mario Batali, and Wolfgang Puck are the new three to take on two of the original Japanese Iron Chefs: Masaharu Morimoto and Hiroyuki Sakai.

In this mini-series, we saw four battles: Sakai v. Flay, Morimoto v. Batali, Morimoto v. Puck, and then a special twist battle (which I won't divulge.)

The show was well done. Alton Brown has jumped in as the commentator, taking the spot of Kenji Fukui, and he did a great job. His commentary was just as interesting as his show. The battles were almost as good as the original, as was the judging. (They even had the standard giggly chick saying stupid things.) And the new Kitchen Stadium is very pretty.

But overall, it just didn't have the same feeling to it that the originals did. "Ryouri no Tetsujin" just had a style to it - slightly ridiculous, fast-paced, fun, and a good time overall. These shows had some of that, but there was something missing. Even still, it's worth a watching if you're an Iron Chef fan.
