Just finished watching Iron Chef America which is now on instead of the orginal Iron Chef. :ugh: :mad:

Not impressed!!! :mad:

One is a huge devotee to the original and has a regular ritual of sitting down with a large glass (or bottle) of VB to watch the Iron Chef's battle it out although I am mildly pleased that it follows the original fairly closely, but nothing compares to the magnificently dubbed Japanese version, the 90's outfits and amusing comments that the judges and commentators make.

Curious to what other Iron Chef fans think

No, no way you could top the original.

"And tonight's special ingredient .... eels!!"
(Chairman Kaga takes a big bite out of his capsicum while turning to stare off into the distance).

... later, as lovely young actress samples the food ...

"mmm, it has a delicate flavour that is somehow ... ah, how shall I put it ... particularly delicious, especially the marinated eel livers. I like it very much!"

Feel I must comment: you say " only the Japs can do Kitsch!"

Sunshine, from our perspective, their whole LIFE is Kitsch!
(and sometimes that's not all bad - please, please note I did say "sometimes.") :)

I, too, was quite annoyed at the American version. Each to their own, and I'm sure it's quite popular, but the original is the best!

I hang out each weef for both the theme ingredient, and to see what Chairman Kaga will wear (borrowed from Micheal Jackson's wardrobe!) I'm a bit of a junkie, I must admit - I even have the official guide book!
