I on the other hand hated it with a burning passion. To me the "making it as
they go along" as well as the "many chefs" aspects were painfully clear.
It could have been a good series, but it quickly turned into a way too
random soap opera. If there actually had been a logical story arc arising
from consistent characters and logical actions I would have liked it a lot.
As it is now, I only like the pilot.
