  1. This show is definitely different from Kitchen Nightmares. It's not as loud and dramatic as the KN US show. You can really sympathize with a lot of the owners. I like it.

  2. It saddens me to see all the closures from season 2. I do think that the audience connects with the people better. but am I the only one who is thinking most restaurants dont even know how to make food...
