tetsujin070561: okonomiyagi: This version of Battle Rice is from Pony Canyon VHS tapes, an official product of Fuji TV. So, it has been seen outside Japan, but not on USA television.

Man Alive!: The presentation on Iron Chef Thailand is really slick! The set, graphics, and music are all fantastic.

okonomiyagi: Looks like Kitchen Stadium Thailand got a pretty sweet makeover. The not-so-sweet stuff: they've adopted the new American format. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNEN5ZwrpNk

Iron Chef Mandy: That's the thread. I first assumed that didn't fly with staff...

herringchoker: ICM - If you're referring to the post about Todd English getting arrested, I remember seeing it. But it seems to be gone now...very odd.

Sanchez is kind of on the whiny side, I agree.
I had mixed feelings about the elimination challenge last night. On the one hand it isn't a bad thing to be familiar with the high-tech equipment and chemical stuff, but on the other it's just not some peoples' style.
If they "expect" an Iron Chef to be innovative, someone better have a discussion with Bobby Flay. I have nothing against the man, but he tends to the safe, familiar side whenever possible.

Well, there *have* been episodes of the original ICJ where the IC hasn't been particularly innovative. When Morimoto was given abalone as an ingredient, for example, all the judges described his offerings as conventional. And IC Chen with prawns tried to recreate his father's dishes.

I really didn't think the second challenge was fair. Chances are the chefs will NEVER use one of those machines in Kitchen Stadium. While innovation is important, I don't think that was an accurate test of said quality.
Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a challenge where the chefs create a set menu that they have to make, only to have random kitchen appliances not work. THAT would be a true Kitchen Stadium test.
And I agree about Chef Sanchez- once time is called, that's it. I don't know how many times he can overstep the time limit and stay in the competition.

Haven't seen the ep yet, but Food Network Canada starts broadcasting TNIC this coming Sunday.
Re Chef Sanchez: if what he's doing is final decoration, the judges will probably give him some leeway. You'll remember that in ICJ, in a battle between Michiba and one of Kandagawa's apprentices, Kandagawa called foul on Michiba when the latter continued garnishing after the time limit was up. Michiba still won the battle.
Mind you, I'm also a bit concerned that both female contestants have been eliminated rather quickly.
