We know that Gordon Ramsay is basically on half the series airing original episodes this summer, but "Hell's Kitchen is the one he was on first.  Oh, not this summer, this summer "Hell's Kitchen" is his last series to premiere, but it is also the oldest of those series.  As with the rest of Ramsay's shows, it features him calling people 'fat, stupid, cows' on a regular basis.  But in this series he does it with more knives than usual around which makes his yelling somewhat more dangerous.  Get ready for the beef wellington, "Hell's Kitchen" is back.

    This is not the first time that FOX has opted to go with two seasons of "Hell's Kitchen" in a single year and it may not be the last.  Why not do it this way?  So much of the interest lies in the contestants themselves and how they will respond to being called names by Gordon Ramsay, and not in which specific names Ramsay will use as those tend to repeat.  As long as the contestants are interesting, it will be a great season.  Get your first look at them tonight and see what you think.

    Tonight, certainly not for the first nor the last time, "Hell's Kitchen" is going to come to a close.  Tonight, one of the two remaining chefs will be selected as the champion and win the grand prize.  Yes, tonight, the Gordon Ramsay-helmed series ends its season.  We can expect the final dinner services followed by the ultimate reveal.  There will be much discussion about who deserves it and how far people have come and maybe even how both are deserving candidates.  However, in the end, only one person can be crowned the champion.

    Gordon Ramsay backs down from no one.  Gordon Ramsay looks Death squarely in the eye, calls him a "fat cow whose brain is the only thing duller than his knife," and then kicks him out of the kitchen.  It is because he has no fear, that Gordon Ramsay's "Hell's Kitchen" is going up against the NBA Finals tonight.  Please note, we have entirely made up that quote, we do not believe Ramsay ever said that to Death, but "Hell's Kitchen" is still new tonight and we do think that given the opportunity Ramsay would have words for Death.

    We have spoken to you before, in regards to other series (and perhaps other seasons of this series) of the nitty gritty and of the separation of chaff from wheat.  Well, here we are, with fewer than 10 contestants remaining on "Hell's Kitchen."  They aren't quite at the moment for the black jackets yet, but they are getting close.  Who is going home tonight and who is going to live to cook another beef wellington?  Watch and see.

    Well, here we are, the second half of May, and we're already in the back half of the season of "Hell's Kitchen."  We beg of you, what is going to happen when we reach the end of July and Gordon Ramsay has one fewer show on FOX's primetime lineup?  Tonight is episode 11 of the 20 episode season so yes, we are indeed in the second half of the "Hell's Kitchen" season.  We hav eliminated so many of the so not deserving candidates.  Who will go home tonight?

    Every year, for reasons we don't understand, there are people on "Hell's Kitchen" who don't deserve to be there.  Tonight is the fifth episode of the season and that means that we've eliminated four folks who clearly shouldn't get a black jacket already.  You can bet, however, there are still a bunch of folks who need to go home left.  Tonight, one of those deserving few gets canned.  Watch and find out just whom it is that Ramsay opts to yell at and unceremoniously dismiss.  We have a pick or two for him if he needs help, but we kind of doubt that he does.

    Holy cow, Gordon Ramsay is back.  Sure, he was due back a couple of weeks ago on "Kitchen Nightmares," but they've opted to push that (twice now) and, instead, are going to give us "Hell's Kitchen" moderately more early than they had anticipated.  What, precisely does that mean?  Well, it has more to do with what it means for "American Idol" than anything else, but as for us, it means that rather than watching Ramsay call different people awful names every week on "Kitchen Nightmares," we'll get to watch him calling the same people awful names every week here.

    If it feels like this season of "Hell's Kitchen" is ending earlier in the summer than other seasons, that's because it is.  Last year, "Hell's Kitchen" aired its finale on September 10th, and here we are still in July and it's ending tonight.  Don't even get us started on the fact that season 10 only had a 20 episode order and season 11 is doing 22 episodes.  That is two whole extra episodes of Gordon Ramsay yelling about the beef wellington and calling people fat cows, but it just doesn't feel like enough, does it?  On the bright side, we are already promised, at minimum, two more seasons down the line.  So, just because it ends for a while tonight doesn't mean it's ending forever.  But, to be clear, it's ending for a while tonight.

    We are getting awfully close to the time when the red team and the blue team disappear and everyone gets their own black jacket.  Now, that really is a special moment for the series.  It is the moment when the intra-team backstabbing become front-stabbing, it is the moment when everyone is open and honest about being in this for themselves, and not just honest to the camera, honest to their competitors' faces.  It is also the moment, sadly, when Ramsay tends to get slightly more nice about what people are doing in the kitchen and acts like he's been successful mentoring them.  That bit we don't buy, but we totally accept the rest of it.

    We know what you're thinking, but not to worry, summer repeats aren't here quite yet.  The truth is we're not entirely sure why "Hell's Kitchen" is coming back so soon (though we could hazard a few guesses), but it's not really important why.  What is important is that a few competent, more semi-competent, and a whole lot of incompetent chefs are about to step into the kitchen with Gordon Ramsay and get yelled at for their inability to do a perfect risotto or beef wellington whilst getting hit in the head with a verbal frying pan by the master chef himself.  "Hell's Kitchen" returns tonight with the premiere of season 11.

    One of the reasons we love this episode is that the voiceover guy doesn't say "And now the continuation of 'Hell's Kitchen'" at the start of the episode.  Instead, he says "And now the conclusion of 'Hell's Kitchen.'"  Well, maybe he says "finale" sometimes, but the point is that he is forced to vary his spiel and we love that.  We also love the idea of learning which of the contestants we've been pulling for ends up winning it all.  And, truthfully, we've have successfully picked the winner just about every season (they're always the ones smiling at the end of the episode).

    "Hell's Kitchen" runs an 18 episode season and tonight is episode 10.  Now, that would make episode 9 halfway home and tonight's episode more than halfway.  What with tomorrow being a day off for most of us, we recommend that you spend some quality time with Chef Ramsay tonight, no matter how long you need to stay up to make that happen.  If you don't watch tonight, how will you know if the kitchen is still full of 'fat cows' or if they've finally worked out how to make the wellington and cut the scallops properly.

    Ah "Hell's Kitchen," that show where one week you're a 'fat cow' because you've burned the beef wellington and where you're a savior the next for making a perfect risotto.  We love the series' consistency from year-to-year and their unabashed desire to cast the same type of people over and over again.  There is comfort in knowing that there will be one great cook who can't win because they're not a chef and that Ramsay will make at least one person cry.  That last one is actually a guarantee (because if no one on the series cries, we'll cry).

    At the start of every episode of this series, the narrator gives us a really dramatic 'previously on "Hell's Kitchen."'  We are getting back-to-back episodes of the show tonight, but we hope that getting two hours of the show doesn't mean we miss out on a 'previously on' dramatic voice over.  Actually, we're really happy to have two hours of the show tonight because it means that we get to hear about twice as many stupid, fat cows and twice as much yelling that the chefs have destroyed the risotto yet again.  There's just nothing like Gordon Ramsay yelling at people; watch, you'll see.

    We don't think that we'd call this season of "Hell's Kitchen" our absolute favorite, but it certainly has had some pretty great moments.  It isn't that we wouldn't suggest some overhauling of the show for the next season, but we do think that there's still a lot to like here.  But, that doesn't really address the question of whom Gordon Ramsay is going to select as tonight's winner.  We have our guesses, certainly, but Ramsay doesn't always see things the same way we do.  Weird?  Yes, we think so, but then again, it is Gordon Ramsay and he does get a kick by going against the grain.

    It doesn't feel like all that long ago that Gordon Ramsay was a not-quite-as-old chef, screaming his head off about the way a 'fat cow' was wandering going about trying to make risotto on his new series (yes, he probably said those exact words last week as well, but he was older than when he first uttered them and the series was not longer new).  "Hell's Kitchen" is airing its 100th episode tonight and that means that it can live on in syndication forever.  Well, it would mean that if this was a scripted show which works far better in syndication that reality series tend to, but it's still a pretty good number to be at.

    It would be foolhardy of us to suggest that this season of "Hell's Kitchen" has been markedly different from any of the others.  It hasn't, it's been more of the same.  However, in this case, that means that it's been more of the same awesome.  We're sorry if you don't feel the same way, but we could listen to Gordon Ramsay spew venom to incompetent chefs week in and week out for years on end.  He's just that good at it... check that... he's just that great at it.  The man is a legend when it comes to spewing venom.  We particularly like it when he calls someone a "fat, stupid cow."  Semi-redundant, yes, but great.

    For many a year now, Gordon Ramsay has been inviting chefs, cooks, and would-be kitchen types into a television studio known only as 'Hell's Kitchen' to be part of a reality show known only as "Hell's Kitchen."  Though we believe that Ramsay truly does want to find worthwhile people to run the various restaurants he's been tasked with finding chefs for, he doesn't always get the strongest candidates.  Though sad for him, that's great for us, as it's much better to hear Ramsay yell 'you BLEEPing moron, you stupid BLEEPing cow, that's not risotto!' than it would be to hear him yell 'you BLEEPing beautiful man, that's exactly the BLEEPing way I want it.'

    Doesn't it seem like we just ended a season of "Hell's Kitchen"? Well, Gordon Ramsay is back and he has an all-new group of aspiring chefs to swear at. This season, the 16 contestants will be vying for a chance to serve as head chef at Araxi Restaurant in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Since it's the premiere, expect the chefs to make their signature dishes and then expect Chef Ramsay to be highly unimpressed with all of them. No, we aren't psychic. This show just doesn't change all that much.
