[img]http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/guide/images/220/chef_1.jpg[/img] I needed some fierce laughs and 4 or 5 episodes from [b]CHEF! The Complete Series[/b] did the trick and then some. I admire Lenny Henry for his outstanding performances as "Chef Gareth Blackstock", but the character itself is fantastic. He comes off real hard but has a soft side and he's a brilliant cook with a strong-headed woman waiting for him at home. The various characters surrounding them have their strengths and weaknesses, indeed there is quite a bit of turnaround in it's 3 short seasons, but I've never failed to enjoy each and every episode. They smartly feature more than just the inside of "Stock's" kitchen, including the Blackstock home and the nice english countryside. This show (as well as the gameshow [i]Can't cook won't cook[/i]) inpsired me to do better with the foods I prepare. Lately I've been buying pre-cooked foods, so Chef! would defianately give me a tongue lashing on that one. I even buy packet gravy! :eek:
