Sanji Himura: Depends. If you actually visited the place, then it would go under Restaurant Recommendations. If not, then maybe under Iron Chef/Challenger discussion.

okonomiyagi: Say I want to post a restaurant review of a chef featured on an iteration of the show: would that go under the board for the show, or under Iron Chef/Challenger discussion?

ironnut77: Sanji - I believe that "two victory" rule was in the very early days of the original show, scrapped after 1993 or so.

Sanji Himura: Few were brave enough to try it in ICJ, I can count a few of them off the top of my head, Toshiro Kandagawa is a top contender.

Sanji Himura: Tell me the truth here. Am I the only one who is slightly put off over the fact that the challenger in the final battle did NOT get to pick her Iron Chef of choice to do battle with? Two victories over an IC in ICJ earns a chef IC status...

Man Alive!: Those were the days! Kitchen Stadium took in many refugees from the wonderful Iron Fans community. I miss the old crew!

ironnut77: rosdaddy - ManAlive was indeed with us on IronFans. A bunch of the IronFans members followed him here once that site was defunct. Sadly, not many remain active today.

rosdaddy: Hey ManAlive - Nice to digitally meet you (or, re-meet if you were on the boards back in the early oughts)
May 11, 2022 23:23:38 GMT -5
Man Alive!: I'm still here! My heart swells every time I see renewed interest in Iron Chef!
May 5, 2022 1:38:18 GMT -5
ironnut77: Haven't seen ManAlive in a while - hope all is well, and that he can see the slight uptick in activity on this site recently. ICJ is STILL alive!

Man Alive!: A reboot of Iron Chef is coming to Netflix! And welcome, icfanus5!

icfanus5: Hello all and Happy New Year! Long time IC fan. Started watching when I was probably 10 or 11 years old, I'm 35 now! I'm sad to see a lot of the people no longer with us, like Kobe and Kandagawa.

I've managed to track down an online version of the Iron Chef 2012 premiere 2-hour special. It's uploaded onto FC2, a flash video site. The quality is quite good, and I'm surprised it's already online.
You may need to make an account to view. I was able to watch without signing in, but after reloading the page a few times was required to make a (free) account. A pay account promises "High quality" but I don't think it's worth it.
Hoping to find an HD download soon, to watch on my TV!
I've just started watching the episode, and I'm already extremely impressed. It's clear that the people behind this revival have a clear understanding of what made the original so great. It has the dramatic flair that ICA so desperately needs. And Kitchen Stadium 2012 is beyond cool. What a great blend of artistry and visual effects.
And there are a few familiar faces that show up. I won't spoil any of the surprises so that you can guys can be as floored as I was when you watch the episode.
I can't wait for a subtitled version of this! I really hope Food Network picks up the rights to this series, although the network has seemingly moved away from quirky shows like this in recent years. Regardless, it's great that we're finally getting more ICJ, and I look forward to future episodes!
