F**king Gordon...

I have often spoken here of my love of Gordon Ramsay. He's a funny bloke. A f**king funny bloke. And I love his television appearances. But this new series of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares has been a rather annoying combination of new episodes and rehashes of previous culinary catastrophes. "Tonight," says the link announcer, "the new series of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares continues with a brand new episode." A brand new episode? You'd think that would be the very least you'd expect from a new series. But Channel 4 seem to have lost the plot. I realise that Gordon's a busy man, f**king and blinding his way through a lot of television commitments in between overseeing Gordon Ramsay Holdings. But I'd have preferred to wait until a genuine full series of Nightmares was ready, even if it meant hanging on for anther 12 months, than having to endure this piece meal offering. But no, that's not the modern way. Even tonight's brand new episode was a let down, with Gordon more involved in marriage counselling a couple of shouty, stumpy, grubby looking Welsh folk rather than turning their kitchen around. When they revisit this one in next year's new series I won't bother watching it again.
