Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares: The Runaway Girl (season premiere) - open thread

Gordon RamsayTV viewers who only know Kitchen Nightmares from the FOX version might be surprised by the original UK version. Sure, he gets ticked off and swears in the UK version (and some of the swears are unbleeped!), but it's also a quieter, more serious show than the FOX version. Ramsay narrates himself, unlike the FOX version which uses a Hell's Kitchen-like narrator and approach that is more loud and abrasive.

Last night was the season premiereon BBC America. What did you think?

I'm always surprised at the reluctance of failing business owners to listen to Ramsay's advice. I'm sure much of it is in the TV production, but it still seems silly.

Ramsay has basically allowed himself to become a caricature of himself in the pursuit of American riches. Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares are both extreme versions of his real character, which he must be obliged to peddle in the pursuit of ratings, I guess. Fans should watch him in F Word and the original Kitchen Nightmares - a far more rounded human being is revealed. But just as entertaining.
