Chuck’s Day Off v. Alex’s Day Off

Rocky Road | Jun 19, 2010 11:39 AM

Is anyone else liking the show Chuck’s Day Off on the Cooking Channel? I had never seen it before until this channel started up. I really like this show, mostly for his enthusiasm, but he’s making some cool stuff too. This guy is really fun to watch and he doesn’t seem to be a fake either. What comes across to me is a genuine passion and love for cooking, his restaurant, his staff and customers. I also like the concept that it’s his day off and he’s kicking it in his own restaurant cooking for staff and friends. I’m assuming his restaurant is somewhere in Canada? His show is on quite a bit, and I’ve seen a few reruns, but I’m seeing a lot of new stuff too. His show is fast paced, and the background music is not bad either. It's fun to watch.

I’ve also seen Alex’s Day Off a few times (admittedly not many) but the few times I’ve given it a chance it seems slow, uninteresting, and Alex seems awkward on the camera. She is also cooking from her home (or a set) and that seems boorish compared to Chuck. I suppose I need to give Alex more of a shot, but I’m really liking Chuck at the moment. He's blowing Alex away in this concept.
