As a fan of Kitchen Nightmares and Gordon Ramsay in general, I was excited to see him returning with a new “restaurant help” show after a nearly four year hiatus. In fact, judging from the commercials, it appeared that this was going to be the same show, just done in a more challenging 24 hours as opposed to the few days or week he used to give himself. While 24 Hours to Hell and Back does have the feel of Kitchen Nightmares, it manages to be too over-the-top for its own good. As if you think Ramsay couldn’t scream or curse any more than he usually does, you are wrong. Only now he has elevated his game by actually throwing a piece of rotten meat at faulty workers and making them eat the same mold-invested nacho cheese that was served to him an hour earlier.
