Sea Monster Week on Iron Chef Japan

Next week is "Sea Monster Week" on Iron Chef Japan—the original and, arguably, best food competition show—available only on Food Network's sister station Fine Living.

Take a peek:

I'll pretend like you didn't use "czech" in that way.

This will always be way way superior to the US FN version, everything that made Iron Chef fun has been removed from the US version, It shouldnt even be called Iron Chef. Its just another one of FN cooking challenge shows.

IC Japan is great to watch.Real pioneer in food tv. Not surprising FN totally thiefed the idea. Do they have any original ideas ? I am thinking every one of their programs is inspired by something else already that has been done.

Can someone tell me what a pui-san is ?

I lurve the original Iron Chef. Its much more entertaining than the American version. The voice overs alone are enough to have me falling off the couch laughing.

Seriously Jakeypoo, did you use "czech"?!?!?!?

The voiceovers creep me the heck out ...

I wish on IC America that they'd let Morimoto talk ... instead of using a VO dude ... We know Morimoto speaks English ... Let the man talk !!




Hey - Where's the news about Paula that I sent you ???

"Fine Living has better cooking shows than FN!"

No big accomplishment. So does PBS, Bravo, Discovery, FitTV, and Travel Channel (not cooking, but food related).

I think the reason they wont let Morimoto speak is because it would require the viewer to stop and actually pay attention, its hard for those in the FN target states to do that.

I thought you would post it BEFORE the race ... So that people will turn in for the pre-race show / festivities ...

You might even seen Paula & Michael Groover be driven around in an uber ginormous shopping cart ... LOL

Thansk for the heads up on the sea monster week. I've recorded all these in the middle of the night so I get the rerun of the new Emeril show, too, while everyone's asleep. (Yes, I stil watch the big E...I'm an addict after all and haven't weaned off him completely 8^) )
