They're trying to confuse my old feeble mind with their wacky schedule.

All Times Eastern:

Friday:
9 - The Making of Iron Chef America
10 - Flay v. Sakai

Saturday:
9 - Flay v. Sakai (repeat I assume)
10 - Morimoto v. Batali

Sunday:
6 - The Making of Iron Chef America
7 - Flay v. Sakai
8 - Morimoto v. Batali
9 - Morimoto v. Puck
10 - Tag Team Finale

So, if I calculate correctly, there are 5 hours to tape and it's basically the Sunday line-up to get it all at once. Flay/Sakai gets three airings? That must be a helluva trout!

From their schedule, Food Network Canada will NOT be showing it this weekend...and that makes me sad.

Cripes, WHY did they put Bobby Flay in this thing again? He's already lost two of these things (both times being pretty decisively beaten, as I recall) and came off looking like a huge whiner both times... and that was against Morimoto. Him going against Sakai is like putting Spike Dudley against Robocop riding on a chariot pulled by T-800s. Why not Emeril, or Ming Tsai? Hell, I'd rather see Alton Brown in his spot, and he's not exactly a gourmet chef.

I'm really pumped for the other two, though... does anyone know if they're still going to have Shatner playing the American version of Chairman Kaga?

I don't know why, but Alton Brown vs. Iron Chef Italian would sound like a rather interesting battle.

Actually, Flay beat Morimoto in the Millenium battle. Morimoto was out of practice, and didn't have enough time for some of his dishes.

I'd LOVE to see Emeril go on Iron Chef. He's the one guy (well, Jamie Oliver, too, I guess) that even if he's cooking something that sounds nasty, I'd try it if he made it.

Actually, Alton Brown is the Hattori of the show, color commentator.

Shantner will not be part of this show.

Well I'll be damned... I had remembered the ending of that one completely wrong. Ouch. Interesting that they made a point, in their first battle, to let Flay's dishes be tasted last so that his heavily-spiced stuff didn't overpower the judges... and then didn't in the second one. I wonder how much impact something like that made on the final judgement?

Edit: No Shatner = a million zillion bonus points! :)

Looks like Alton Brown's also play-by-play. I saw in an LJ community about Good Eats that it would mostly be him and a floor reporter.

Nate: Then you throw in the fact that they're in the double bonus for not being on UPN... Also, they're showing the Making Of special, and that's got a very distinct Brown flavor to it. And not just because he's hosting... the show looks like it was done in the same style as Good Eats.

I forget who's the chairman, but I believe he's an actor that's been in a bunch of kung-fu movies. I'm also not thrilled with Flay being there, but I guess he draws. If anyone on the show put my ass in this seat, though, it'd be Brown.

Aw come on, you know Flay can BRING IT. Bobby Flay rules. He drinks a lot of ice cold beer and Kentucky bourbon. Although unfortunately it looks like he won't be showing off his toothy blonde hoe of the week this time around. :'( :'( :'(

I dunno... maybe it's just the first two times he was on that makes me think that. He just came off as a bit of a douche.

And there's different toothy blond hoes? Don't pay enough attention to their other programming (anything that doesn't involve Iron Chef, Jaime Oliver, or Alton Brown gets filed under "abuse via television" because it's almost all my father watches) to tell the difference.

But yeah, as for the show itself, they need to get a play by play guy. It's almost too much Alton. (Not spoilerized because the replay's over.)

So uh....just what STD *does* Bobby have? Would you, the disease-free consumer, want him preparing food for YOU?

I'm Kim Zimmerman, and I approved this message. Seriously, dudes, I am the biggest Bobby Flay apologist there is, but there is a point in the preview special where that thing is coming straight out at you in 3-D and it is capital-D Disgusting. Oh my God. As a public service, we have been trying to find images online but with no luck. We anxiously await vidcaps. The children need to be informed. RAISE THE ROOF YO

And I wanna know if he picked it up from one of the 'toothy blonde hoes' or has he been down cooking in Brazil (The W)?

and now to the actual cooking -

Sakai's ice cream dish would have gone over much better in Japan and so would his "gift" presentation of his soup. I'm not a big fan of trout but I would have been happy to eat any of the 10 dishes the two chefs prepared.

That's always the biggest problem in a battle between two chefs from different cultures. They each prepare dishes suited to the palets of their respective cultures, so there's a huge advantage for the chef who is from the same culture as the judges.

There was one thing on the scoring that bothered me. Flay won on presentation. Sakie's dishes looked like pieces of fine art. A draw would have been questionable IMO. It was only a one point diff. and wouldn't have changed the overall outcome. But I couldn't help looking at that and asking WTF?

I've eaten at MANY asian restaurants where the food 'looked' good enough to be in a museum, and as a hungry american, I can honestly say that I'd rather go somewhere where the food is just slopped on the plate then eat at one where it takes more time to 'place' the food of the plate then prepare it. You're supposed to EAT the food, not stare at it.

I almost missed it, due to a preemption by the Pacers game Thursday night. I decided to go ahead and stay up for the midnight showing anyways, and was not dissapointed. Spike was comedy gold (like almost always). Good, good stuff.
