Jean Philippe Susilovic,
Features Ramsay swooping into a restaurant on the verge of collapse and spending a week in save mode. Then he comes back after a few months to see the results of his coaching. Will the restaurant survive?
This show is more documentary than reality. Mike Rowe is half the fun as the quick witted gross-host-with-the-most. Kinda like the Mr. Wizard of sewage, but more of an engineering slant on the issue. Even though I'm married to a civil engineer who took classes in sewer design, both of us are fascinated by this show and have a new appreciation for Americas' unsung malodorous-heroes. Its not a gross out show. Really. Its kinda weird. You would think they were talking about the surface of Mars based on how little the public knows about the subjects he covers- but in reality, he's covering technology that dates back to the Roman Empire. The sewers of San Francisco have withstood fires and earthquakes, but the vermin and volume of effluence that flow through it are an unheralded architectural monument to the engineering accomplishments of the 1800's mason. Great show. Much better than the usual reality-show drivel equivalent that Mike analyzes on his missions.
