Just bad.....
21 May 2015 | by (Detroit) – See all my reviews

Every year i try to make it through masterchef US, and this year i just can't do it..

Between the loud music that sounds like its out of some action movie, The replays of the last 2 minutes after each commercial, And the badly done fake winners its ridiculous..

As an example of the bad setups, last year they had a woman that was cutting stuff on her board and throwing it all on the floor.. not just scraps but everything she was cutting onto the floor. was just horrible..

Also, making sure the right people make it into the show so that you cover every demographic possible.. its just so bad..

For those of you that don't watch the real masterchef shows.. you should check out masterchef UK.. the original and still great.. OR... the best.. masterchef Australia. Which is by far the best of all the masterchef shows. The guest chefs are tops in the world. It's been mentioned by a few of them that what you see is what happens, no one is allowed to win to build drama.. And unlike the US version not everything ends in a tie breaker.. and i mean EVERYTHING seems to in the US version. And the Australian one is 5 nights a week for about 3 months..

I know that people will disagree with me and thats fine.. just had to vent after watching the first episode of this years US version.. and it was just as bad as the last seasons..

P.S. whoever films it needs to go back to school.. the color saturation is just unreal. tone it back there a little.
