Compared To Reality Crap Filming Around Town, TNT's New Dallas May Not Be So Bad


My wife and I watched last night's Highland Park-set episode of Top Chef: Texas in wide-eyed (and, eventually, slightly drunken) disbelief; it was like some Frankenstein monster created from the worst parts of Most Eligible Dallas, The A List: Dallas, Dallas Divas & Daughters and one of those rare occasions when Tom Colicchio actually shows up at his Craft in the W. TNT could not have chosen a better time to release a new trailer for its next-gen Dallas reboot, which looks like a Merchant Ivory production in comparison. For this we paid $400,000? I demand a refund.

Real Dallas food lovers watch Anthony Bourdain and read DallasFood.org.  Why waste your time on this Bravo drivel.  I feel sorry for the Top Chef competitors having to put up with Dallas' modern day incarnations of the snobby born-rich assholes from "Revenge of the Nerds" in the first Top Chef Texas episode in Dallas.  Really, though, did you expect anything less than cliche from these Bravo guys, slumming in Texas with boots on that they bought yesterday?

Call me when they film The Amazing Race: Lone Star Edition.

Horrible representation of Dallas.  The McMansions, distateful decorating, husbands in HIghland Park who were all shorter than their wives and the woman were well....not so pretty.  I wonder if Tom will let the chefs do a gig at CRAFT, doubtful and that place is hugely overrated.

Another one you forgot was the atrocious Debbie Decorates Dallas on HGTV.  After watching some of these shows it's funny(?) to see what an outsider's view looking in is.

spotted that Top Chef program listing last nite and passed over now after reading various Dallas blogs about it I wish I had watched the train wreck

I was seriously concerned for Tom Collichio last night.  I thought for sure that his eyes were going to pop right out of their sockets, as much eye rolling as he was doing. Did Bravo go out of their way to find the worst couples in town to do this progressive dinner?  That, or are they in preliminary casting for Top Douche, Couples Edition?

The Dallas reboot is a go yet Community's fate is very up in the air.

Face palm.

25 years from now "Idiocracy" will be looked upon as Erroll Morris's most insightful and prescient work.

If by funny, you mean tragic, then yes.

It's Bravo. They repeat everything 40 times in a week, you'll likely be able to catch it.

2 new episodes before indefinite hiatus, including tonight.

Yet we'll get to see new episodes of Whitney, Allan Gregory, I Hate My Teenage Daughter, and all the shit Bravo churns out not named Top Chef. Makes for a sad Scruffy.
