I DVR Iron Chef and watch them later, sometimes MUCH later, when I'm nursing a migraine or something. Some I never watch at all.
And so it was that I found myself on the sofa last week waiting for the codeine to kick in and I chose my first Garces episode to watch. He lost. So I watched another. He lost that too, and where sometimes it's hard to predict who the judges will favor it was obvious in each of these episodes that he was going down. Then I watched a third and he won, but where final scores are usually in the 55-50 range, he won that one by scoring a paltry 40 points vs. his oponent's 37. And that's all the Garces episodes in my DVR.
He looks miserable and embarrassed. It's bad TV. Anyone have any insider knowledge about what's going on? Is Forgione going to replace him?
