Whoever designed this show should be chopped. I watched the premiere the other night and visually it was dreadful. The contestants are all identically dressed in dark charcoal grey chef jackets, which matches the dark charcoal grey backdrop of the kitchen set. The result is a dark, grey, depressing image where the chefs are only distinguishable as bobing heads. The show itself was hardly better. In one hour, the chefs are challenged and then "chopped" with the winner announced in what seems way too short of a time. Overall, I was extremely disappointed. I will give it one more chance, but the monotone, drab, and depressing tone has got to go.
