    Season 4 – The Family Brigade Challenge, June 25, 2011
    Ghenghis (Mongolia) –

    This review is from: F Word – Series Four (DVD)

    Not familiar with the F Word, you should be.

    The F Word is a restaurant where teams compete week to week in Gordon’s kitchen under his
    guidance (whip) for nothing but bragging rights, and a free drink at the end of the season,
    if they survive that long. First, each brigade has to prepare a starter, an entre, and a
    dessert to Gordon’s specifications for 50 people. Not as easy as it sounds. The winners
    advance based on how many patrons are willing to “pay” for each dish. The winner is rewarded
    with a silly plastic trophy with that big ugly “F” you see on the DVD cover.

    This series also features guest celebrities who go head to head with Gordon in the kitchen
    with a dish of their own choice. Restaurant patrons pick the winner and probably the most
    hilarious thing I’ve ever seen is Gordon jumping around like a 12 year old girl when he wins
    one of these contests against these untrained wannabes. This is probably my favorite feature
    of the F Word followed closely by field trips to farms, rivers, etc where Gordon gets the
    straight dope on where his ingredients are coming from. My least favorite feature is a lady
    named Janet Street-Porter. Some of you may find her to be very funny, Gordon does, and some
    of you may not. I am one of the people who finds her extremely irritating but Gordon just
    laughs and laughs at her antics.

    Field trips this season frequently include Gordon’s son Jack, who is the spitting image. Others
    include a day of training with the Royal Marines, rabbit hunting (and gutting), and a real treat
    when Gordon flies to Oklahoma (yes, Oklahoma) to go “noodling” (or grabbling) for 20lb. catfish.
    The entire season is filled with laughs as Gordon shows off his wit, charm, and full dynamism
    in total contrast to his famous persona. The field trips are also as informative as they are

    This is my favorite of the F Word series that has been released on DVD. However, the absolute
    best F Word is Series 5, which is a countrywide restaurant challenge where to make the cut these
    restaurants have to survive an onslaught of 30 diners that all arrive by bus and order en masse.
    They also have to endure secret diners who are a total pain in the arse and videotape their
    experiences for Gordon to review. A very good series, and worth waiting for.

    If you’re a fan of G.Ramsay and you’re only exposure is the dumbed down Hells Kitchen and Kitchen
    Nightmares on Fox, you owe it to yourself to check this out. You wont be disappointed. BTW, this
    is totally uncensored, so the F Word has a dual meaning I guess.

    Fantastic Food Series Not Like Anything Else, July 20, 2013

    This review is from: F Word – Series Four (DVD)

    The “F” stands for food. This is a really neat series. It is like a variety show where everything is about food. They have a competition that is a lot of fun but is only one aspect of this show. They have a few recipes and some cool “man on the street” segments that have something to do with food. Just a cool show.

    I love Gordon Ramsay! Wonderful variety of segments. Compassionate Gordon Ramsay’s family and hunting segments make the show. Funny guest cooking challenges give a great insight into British pop culture. All fantastic.
