I didn't mind the first episode at all, although Seth's breakdown, or rather, breakdowns, on the second episode traipsed into the land on inappropriately tacky. Thank you for such an insightful blog Danielle, I shall look forward to reading it as the show progresses. I think Gail, Johnny, and Hubert are also doing a great job, especially to Gail. I'll continue watching. Be it talent or the sweet nectar of schadenfreude towards the elimination of chefs who are this point more hot air than souffle, I look forward to seeing crazy dessert challenges. I just hope this show doesn't devolve into a Food Network-esque cake/pastry/baking challenge. Those things are incredibly boring to watch, and I hate to partake in a show where the most exciting part that occurs is the transporting of the finished product from one table to another versus the final product itself and how it is enjoyed.
