    Loved the first ep. After seeing the previews for shows to come, it appears that things will be even more testy this season.

    And Bourdain is a full-time judge. Awesomeness at its finest. Loved how he gave the business to Fabio last night, and his remark about Spike was hysterical.

    I had no idea this was even happening. I'm glad my DVR picked it up with my season pass or whatever for "Top Chef."

    Watching it now. I'm just happy Tre's back. :)

    Bourdain is what this show has been missing. I thought Fabio was coming over the judges table to tear his throat out.

    Great cast, should be fun.

    Anybody from D.C. on there? That's the only one I've seen.

    Bourdain should have told Fabio:
    Humor and snark are what I'm here for. If you don't find my remarks constructive, tough sh*t.

    Fabio is a very proud guy. He does not take being made fun of well.

    But, I actually think that what he said to Bourdain was just about perfect.

    I thought Fabio came across like a whingin, posturing idiot.
    Bourdain's role on the show is not to be instructive or constructive. Bourdain's hired to be entertaining, humorous and snarky.
    Fabio needs to grow up.

    Yeah, that's Bourdain's role. But that doesn't mean Fabio has to like it.

    I thought he was pretty diplomatic in telling him that under different circumstances there would be a different response from him.

    I liked Fabio's reaction. He isn't some schmuck off the street brought in to be Bourdain's bitch, so he just said he understands what goes on at judges' table, but if it were a different situation, they would have a problem of a different nature on their hands. Just like Bourdain was free to say what he said, Fabio had the right to react.

    I love seeing how the chefs' confidence level has grown since the show, and how they've matured and elevated their games. Especially someone like Spike.

    Well, Fabio wouldn't have gotten that reaction from Bourdain if he'd not put out something that looked like I cooked it.

    I understand the allure of the show and promoting yourself, but I'm shocked so many chefs who are running restaurants are able to take ... what, a month or two? ... off to film this show.

    I have missed Fabio.
