I agree completely. It was a snoozer for me and I agree with the posters that said the ingredients weren't much of a challenge.
The Iron Chefs episode was quite dull and lacked reall competitive energy imo.
I got really annoyed with Cat Cora announcing every 5 minutes that it was her charity and she started it. Yes dear, we get it. You're a wonderful human being and should be showered with gold dust and moonbeams.
So true. And it will probably be even worse for the Chopped Judges episode. Maybe we'll get some real judging for the NFNS and the FN Hosts episodes.
But the most boring part was the "criticism" from the judges Ė it was just so tiring to see how afraid they were to pass any real judgment and how they kept praising dishes that on a regular episode would be criticized heavily.
