      The one thing I liked in the episode was when the French chef said "the hair didn't come from my moustache" with a slight grin as far as I remember.. it got me thinking where it came from lol

        I paid more attention to the ghost town episode than the suburban one.

        I was wrong, Monster Kitchen is the Junkyard Wars of cooking! Looks entertaining - if you are something of a geek.

      3. The promo was so ridiculous that I'll never bother to watch.

          Hear, hear, laurachow. I had exactly the same reaction.

        2. I think this is the first time I ever cancelled a series from taping after just the first episode. Really silly stuff.

          1. So stupid- he contestants have to pull a bag of already-killed rattlesnake out of a crate filled with various pythons that were no doubt well-fed and confused by being in a big crate. That turned me off by being borderline cruel to animals. fifteen minutes later I was grossed out by the dishes the 'chefs' had made from rattlesnake, which is very delicate and should be done in an appetizer like fried calamari. The whole thing was horribly heavy-handed and ridiculous and banking on the fact that not a lot of people have eaten rattlesnake. Oh hells, it's on again now. Gotta change channels.

            1. It has to be the stupidest thing the Food Network has come up with in a long time. Why not put them at the wrong end of a firing range and see how that works out.
