Kitchen Confidential is great!
29 September 2005 | by lusciousxanderSee all my reviews

I've watched the two episodes of Kitchen Confidential, and I gotta admit that am so not disappointed!

The show is wonderful! KC has a ton of potential, the cast are charming, the lead is so cute and interesting. Bradley Cooper did a nice job in the 1st and 2nd episodes and I think this is the first time I enjoy the lead character. Plus new storyline, sharp wit, and no freaking laugh track!

I'm in for Nick Brendon (Xander), and I have to say that Seth is nothing like Xander I guess, he's way more secure and flirts better with women. Jack is an interesting character and I'm so enjoying Steve's character.

Can't wait for the 3rd episode!!
