I thought it was a bit uninspiring. Not one of the dishes blew me away or made me go "mmmm that looks good." (not even the winning one) the way the original TC does and they didn't even have limitations. Disappointing. Also, Loblaws is no Whole Foods. Dude couldn't even find venison. I can't stand Loblaws seafood and their packaged butchering is thin and weak. I actually saw a chef pick up pre-packaged pork. That might work at home, but on Top Chef??? I'm glad the judges weren't too nicey nice Canadian. They have some balls, but the comment "It could be vomit, it could be vomit." shows that even the judges need to get more creative. I'm totally going to watch it though.
