Iron Chef America rules

Posted by beer_chris on 17-November-2005

I love Iron Chef America. It doesn't preach at me like freakin' Boston Legal has been over the past few weeks. In any case, I really thought I wouldn't love the American version of the Japanese show. I'll never forget tuning in for the first time, late on a Friday night on Food Network, and seeing a young Morimoto-san taking on the brash American Bobby Flay, who *dared* to jump onto the cutting board to show his ultimate disrespect for the Japanese palate! So dramatic – with a large live audience cheering at every turn – it was just fantastic TV.

The American version can't quite capture all of that, but it gets darn close. I like it.
