    I'd say he's got that "queer little fellow, isn't he?" type of Les Nessman (WKRP) manliness rather than being gay.

    I sure wish Ramsay had been on hand to enjoy that spectacle, I bet it would have brought a rare smile to his face. "Whatever" gal had the proper response. If Jeff was in a bad way he coulda/shoulda dialed 911, otherwise he should have stuck a sock in it.

    The whole episode overall seemed more serene to me, and I expect that Ramsay will be mainly positive toward the end of the season, assuming it's around for us to see. If Ramsay enjoyed screaming and bleeping because he was twisted instead of using it as a tool I think we'd see it on his face at some point. The cussing/screaming is too engrained to expect that it'll disappear entirely, but once they move past the stage of making the same mistakes and moving at a slugs pace, Ramsay will moderate accordingly.

    Thanks for the reminder about the "roll call" portion of the show, wwhippetcrazy; I loved Chris's lollygagging cluelessness, but felt kind of cheated with the minimal reaction Ramsay had when he sauntered in. I was trying in vain to recall how to indicate in print the frostily denigrating tone that Ramsay used both in saying executive and chef to Chris. He left no doubt at those moments just how worthless he considered Chris to be.

    Basically it seemed like the same show as episode 1 to me, substituting the squid for the contestants' signature dishes. I would have preferred to see some of the scenes where Ramsey was teaching them.

    I think that if Jeff had kidney stones he should have mentioned it to someone. If it is kidney stones, was he suffering before he arrived? Is he on medication? He must have just seemed like just a whiner if he didn't tell anyone what the problem was.

    I guess that the people in England do not expect much in a restaurant. As long as they get food that isn't boiled they seem to be willing to be insulted by waiters and chefs. How else could what Ramsey is providing be considered good service.

    DamonVictor said that he expected someone to deck Ramsey soon. Maybe someone will take out that smug little Maitre'd. I was hoping that the guy with the pizza would put up a fight when they made him leave. His ordering a pizza was one of the saner reactions to being treated like crap.

    Now that the novelty of Ramsey's abuse has worn off, there is not much substance left in the show.

    I almost wish this show was based in New York, just to see that the critics there would say.

    I was thinking the same thing, Hyper. Especially in the second episode -- but that was probably because almost nothing got out of the kitchen in the first episode to be rated.

    Exactly what is the point of Ramsey's so called high standards? Even assuming that the "customers" are really just props for the show he obviously doesn't care to provide them with anything even close to good service.
    If a customer did have any conception of restaurant standards and owned any spine at all he would given Ramsey the same treatment that Ramsey gives to his staff: eg. called him a (expletive deleted) plank and told him that if he was unable to provide food to customers than he shouldn't have opened his (expletive deleted) restaurant and instead of calling it Hell's Kitchen he should have called it Hell's Waiting Room.

    I'm loving this show.

    Poor Dingleberry didn't even know his own mind. he should have stayed quit once he quit. (that sentence seems awkward but I can't figure out how to reword it to make it not that way.)

    I liked that both Chris and the other chef whose name escapes me at the moment both stepped up and were helpful to their co-workers. Their time in the kitchen did seem to have an advantage in this 2nd episode where they maintained calm through the chaos.

    I'm told Kidney stones are very painful but that Jeff just got on my nerves. Go see a dr. already.

    I don't have a favorite yet. I guess in a few weeks once we see more of their personalities I might have one.

    Since when have the British been known for their chefs? Name one. The UK is famous of NOT having good food. (And yes, I've been there several times.)

    Sorry, but I can't get into this show. It seems the abuse (and it is abuse) is very staged and I'm sure is encouraged. Just not my cuppa.
