  • It's "Survivor" with lousier sets, cheesier production values and a stupider host.

    I watched about 15 minutes of the first show this season. Haven't been back. It was awful the first time around - at least the little bit of it I watched. From what I've read here, it's gotten worse. How is that possible?

  • Can we be done with threads about how much this show sucks?

    If every person who said they hated this show could manage to actually not watch it, we'd all be better off

    Do I have to start a thread about how much McDonald's chicken nuggets suck, every time I have them?

    Yeesh

    Jeff, except you don't realize that some of the people that are on this show are friends, and we take it personally when they are eliminated for dishes that have nothing to do with BBQ. -RP

  • If the show sucks, it sucks.

    If you have personal reasons to keep watching, that's fine. But how are we supposed to know that?

    All I keep hearing is how much it sucks. By the same people overnover it seems.

    Even if the show sucks it's cool to see Tom's baby on TV.

    Clearly a joke. I almost wonder if Myron and the boys sat around tossing back shooters and talked up ideas for the show. I'm not a pro, but it's almost ridiculous that they would even want to compete in this circus. I'd have had a lot more respect to have seen someone laugh at the ringmaster, pack up and leave.

    Any person or team that signs on should know it's all for TV ratings.
    I understand your point and agree but it's also nice to see pros get pushed out of their comfort zone. This forum is proof that any type of food is fair game.

    I actually think the show has gotten better as it's gone along. Granted, it's not traditional BBQ but once it sinks in that it is not and will not be the same format as the first it isn't bad. They are showing more and more of how things are done. Tonight I do agree about the turducken and it was one of my least favorite.

    As a rookie in KCBS comps this year and as a guy that's been into food professionally I would jump at the chance to be on the show even if I was eliminated for frog legs. As a person, I would jump at the chance to be on a show where I could win 5k going against 3 competitors and possibly 100k against all the winners. Sure it sucks that teams and people we know are eliminated for side dishes but I don't think I've heard of any that said that they wouldn't do it again.

    I have only watched parts tonight between breaks in other shows and I have not watched at all in the past so I can't say better or worse.
    I do agree with all your others and will cheer you on next season.

    All I have to say is that it's a hell of a lot better than watching The Neeleys..... ;)

    I think the frog leggs were a step below the TDC....
    Did turn off and went to sleep very early in show, did she do any good on the egg?

  • I've only seen the show a couple times and haven't been impressed enough to watch it religously... To bad, this show has some real potential.

    Ya know. Last summer I had to take some medication for 3 months that didn't allow for drinking alcohol. After that was over my wife and a few friends asked me what was the hardest part of not drinking for that long. I said, "I didn't realize Taco Bell was so bad!"

    I haven't watched any of season 2 since the first showing. Emulating Food Network with the new format was a huge mistake. Talk about making a good show really bad....!

    I like it also, I just know what to expect going in and watch it for what it is.

    It,s like the two _______ ladies complaining about a restaurant they had just eaten at.

    "The food was just awful it could kill ya . . . and the portions were so small!

  • I agree. If this show sucks so bad, why watch it every week? I watch it, and so far am not that tore up about it. What I do see, that I think is better, is the fact that you see new people every week. I think that's pretty cool.

  • Sweet!! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    I watched the first show of this season, and haven't watched it since. I even removed it from my DVR schedule. I didn't like the new format at all.

  • I had it set to record all episodes, Yeah I canceled that after the 1st show. :(
