Iron Chef comes to America, Shatner style!
29 November 2003 | by kulaboySee all my reviews

I watched two episodes of this, Holiday Showdown and Showdown in Las Vegas, and these two episodes capture the original show quite well! William Shatner is the Chairman in a very over the top and fun performance, although he isn't in it much. The stars are the chefs who duel against one another using a selected dish- the chefs have one hour to make 5 or more dishes using the secret ingredient, and then have it rated by a celebrity panel (including a guy from the Sopranos and a Playmate) for style and taste. The Iron Chef has announcers calling the shots inside MGM in Vegas- it's a very flashy show, and great for short attention spans who enjoy cooking and competition. A lot of fun!
