the british show is amazing because of the BBC's monopoly on all recorded music. They did really clever ironic song choices a lot too. Brits are smarte.

Yeah, I liked this one quite a lot. Ramsay generally ends up helping the place, at least in a temporary, band-aid sort of way. Sadly, his success rate at keeping them in business for the long run is pretty low. Even Momma Cherri's is gone.
you guys have really insightful comments as usual.... But this show has poisoned my mind because i tend to work for small businesses. I imagine myself pulling a gordon ramsey basically all day.
Bort: Location is definitely a huge deal. With a number of these places on his shows I notice they're in such bad locations, either too inconspicuous or in the middle of better restaurants around them. Even if their food got better, everything around them didn't change much.
I used to help out in a restaurant years ago, and the reason that place went under was because they tore down the housing projects in the area, so we lost a lot of our customers. Being in the restaurant business is fickle and so many things can kill your business if you aren't on top of things constantly, even stuff out of your control.
Is it just me, or does this British version of the show seem far less sensationalized with far less rampant, creative editing and far more civil behavior between the parties involved?
It feels far more like what it claims to be (Ramsay helping people out) than a quasi-staged reality show.
