I wholeheartedly agree with the points made in the article. In addition, I was grateful the dreadful, degrading, Survivor-style Top Chef stunts from last season were abandoned.
I do like LCK,and would normally agree Tom Colichio brings the fairest opinion to the table; but in the case of Krstin, I detected some favoritism. Clearly, she is a fine chef and should not have fallen on her sword but did we really need Tom making it up to her so overtly?
I thought it was fun having Stefan back but Josie was chosen for pure annoyance factor.
The original premise of this show was a great one, it wasn't broken - so stop fixing it!
About the judges: Emeril seems a sweet man but offers the weakest critiques; Hugh! Who doesn't love Hugh's wit & uni-brow. Morever his comments are always on point. And I miss the incomparable cynic Athony Bourdain who was responsible for my favorite quotes from some seasons back: One of the chefs has done horrible things to the broccoli rabe & Tony said ,"In prison, you couldn't serve this." I rest my case.
Just please bring on talented people and allow them, and their creativity, to flourish. No dogsledding or trumped-up drama. Leave the snark to lesser shows. Oh yeah, and a little less of Padma's critiques would be a welcome relief.
