DEWBERRY, GIVE IT TO ME: I'm withholding judgment, for now, on Hell's Kitchen. Gordon Ramsay certainly brings the hell, but unrelenting criticism doesn't make for great television -- it has to be balanced by the occasional praise (see: Trump, Cowell, Dickinson) to be meaningful.
What I wonder about most with the show is whether there's going to be any training going on; otherwise, it's just throwing unqualified people into an oubliette of constant abuse, with no realistic chance to impress Ramsay -- or us.
I like the idea of the show -- Apprentice In The Kitchen. But execution? Well, my bouche is amused, but not wowed. You?
