I saw the Friday night Making Of, and the Bobby Flay vs. Sakei.
I have to say even though this is a better version than the William Shatner version, there is still something "wrong" about it. I think in the Japanese version there is a story, they stuck to the millionaire chairman Kanga and the whole kitchen stadium thing. While the American thing is a knock off of that. What is with the newphew of the Chairman Kanga??
Even though they tried to be serious and cut down on the cheese, it still came across as cheesy to me. I think you just accept cheese when it's in Japanese...
And Bobby Flay won? What is up with that? Sakei's dishes looked so much better.
