That alleged 'Restaurant Manager' Mike was seriously getting on my tits though.
he was so emotional!
his outburst was classic :D
on uk tv? excellent. i watched the ones they screened in usa....and the voiceover guy was worth it alone!seriously - try and find them online. it was SO dramatic. it made it even better.
ps gordon rocks!
not only was he hopeless, but, I would have thought that shouting at the owner's wife in front of a packed dining room is pretty much the worst possible thing a manager could do!
They just edit it to make it seem as though he did. There's even a disclaimer shown on the credits at the end saying "all scenes may not be broadcast in the order they were filmed" or something to that effect. It's really quick though so you can't read it properly.
Well done you for spotting that. I didn't realise.
Damned telly types, hey?
First the Queen and her fictitious strop, then Richard & Judy and their rigged quizzes....now this!
each of the episodes is great. it takes watching a couple to get into it as it does differ from the uk one [in terms of participants not format. obv] but once you get used to it you'll love it :)
...I love the whole Lost style 'Previously on......' thing that they do, they then proceed to run through just about every significant moment in the show!!!
from the fast talking Italian-American owner's wife to the camp, hysterical manager...everybody was straight out of central casting!
I saw one a couple of weeks ago and it looked a bit staged, and also too much time is wasted letting the restaurant owners talk about their feelings.
"they call me mixing bowl Mike". I CALL YOU COCKBREATH.
I always wonder at the end end of these things how long their success lasts.
gordon's going for the angry chef persona. i know that's what he's known for in the uk, but the english kitchen nightmare's weren't him just yelling to yell as he does in the u.s. one.
that's so in-depth i'm going to puke...
It was probably a repeat. A debt collector came to the restaurant and the manager went mental and started shouting at him "You fucking blowjob!". I've started using that as an insult.
