how on earth can anybody take such a 'naff' show seriously?
I'm with you on that and having a laugh but you're getting wound up about it

I watched Eating with the enemy and found it very enjoyable. I must confess I had sky plussed the programmes and was therefore able to whizz through the boring bits. Even so it was easy watching although I have to agree Kate Spicer is very hard to please.

I thought it was unbelievably dire and not being a JM fan, that made it even worse. I hope there isn't a second series.

I agree omegaLexa, there are so many reasons why this programme is poor.
1. The awful James Martin
2. JM piddling around in the chefs' homes at the beginning of the programme for no real reason, other than the chefs introducing the menu ... but this is done in the critics' chamber : This programme could easily be condensed into a half hour slot, it's just another case of filler being used.
3. The critics' chamber
4. Putting a time limit on everything
5. James Martin trying his best to show how a good a chef he is, compared to the cooks
6. Isn't this virtually the same as "Britain's Best Dish"?
7. The stupid gimmick of them publishing the reviews in their local newspaper
The list is endless...
The only thing I do like about this show is the critics, who seem to have personality in abundance(unlike JM)and are also quite funny
I know I'm being a bit pedantic here, but I've been bottling this up for ages!!!
