i have to admit that the voyeuristic side of me compels me to watch the show, and the chefs and designers on it are very talented. that being said, i don't really like how they seem to go out of their way to show how the chef and owner of the restaurant don't know anything. i know that the places they show are in need of help, but they border on and sometimes cross the line of personal insult. what does everyone think of this? some of the places that they have done, they have ignored the wishes of the owner and redesigned the places to what they want, and i don't think that is right. they do end up on a lot of places to make the restaurant look great and make great food, but i have seen several where they just do what they want and it dsoesn't turn out they way that the owner thought it would.
