Trivia

During filming of the pilot episode, the producers still hadn't decided what to call the series, and were considering various choices including "Kitchen S.O.S." and "Ramsay to the Rescue". During the filming of the follow-up visit to Bonaparte's, Gordon Ramsay exasperatedly commented that "This is a living fucking nightmare!" after finding the restaurant in an even worse state than when he first arrived, which gave the inspiration for the show's final title.

Must see for Food Fanciers
28 December 2004 | by lyon1See all my reviews

I'm tired of reality TV, I'm tired of Emeril, give us reality in our reality TV. This show delivers. This is not a show about some chef in a sanitized kitchen studio making meals he has prepared and rehearsed 10 times prior to airing, this is about a man who loves food and wants to see good food on your plate. The drama from the series comes from the people whose restaurants are failing and Gordon's expertise in rectifying their calamities. He addresses this in a direct assault the failings of the business end and back kitchen. More often then not, you find the star in the kitchen with his hands up to elbow in work ensuring his plan comes through. I find his hands on approach refreshing and exciting.

If you enjoy food programming this is a must, if you enjoy reality TV and can appreciate dialog then it is required viewing.

A reality TV show which delivers and rewards the viewer.
