I Heart Artie. . .and Really I Mean Everyone
The Co. itself is filled with the splendid sort of folks you can't help but love. I find myself incredible entranced by Ché Gravy, to start. He's just like a giant teddy bear of a sauce maker. He loves uptown girls and downtown chicks equally. He's going to be a dad. He rapped with Roblé.
Of course I love Jasmine's spunky personality. I think she's going to give Mr. Ali a bit more guff than he bargained for. Same for Kiku, any chick that rocks a pink hoop and a different earring while baking is A-OK in my book. Then there's obviously Shawn, who is going to out out fierce everybody on the planet. I'd love it if there could be some scenario where he and Miss J have to have some of catwalk-off. I will admit that D'Andre's hatred of cheese made me a little confused (how can that even be possible?!?), but I'm sure he's great. And of course, sweet, sweet Adam. Why did he tell that girl it was better than kissing a fish head? Why are you kissing a fish heads? Is that how lonely you are? Because I know plenty of ladies who could remedy that problem for you (beardy nerds are so now).
But here's how Artie climbed to the top spot in my heart -- he's a mooch. Sure, he's good at his job, but he's also really, really good at eating well. I too would be in the kitchen trying to sneak eats. Did anyone else notice him eating cake by himself in the corner in the middle of the Roblé/Jasmine bust up. It's always best in the midst of a major argument to just hide and eat cake. Stay out of it. Keep calm and eat cake, Artie.
That last minute cake request was over the top rude. The poor cake baker was then required to make one and decorate it perfectly in just a short time..The demands on her were absurd. And then the birthday "girl" just obliterated the cake! Robles sister just is too inexperienced to handle the demands people make on chefs and bakers - she will learn in time, but hopefully she now knows to deny these requests until she speaks with the poor people who have to do the work!
if the show is premised on making the clients look bad then I fear that "The Co." will have a rough time finding new clients for their business...yet at the same time, ridiculous clients are what will probably continue to make this show a must-watch!
It was interesting, However looking at the client, to be honest I found her offensive, if I were in the cartering business, I would walk away from her. Looking at the previews with other clients I would do the same, these clients are going to kill the show.
