    One of the worst TV shows of all time!!! Anthony Bourdain, the arrogant one who thinks he knows best. Nigella Lawson, the drama queen who doesn't even know how to cook! Ludo Lefebvre, the childish creep who thinks he knows French food best, and Brian Malarkey, another childish creep who needs lots of growing up to do. Definitely a bad cooking show.

    Boring, confusing, not terribly entertaining at all. I turned it off after 30 minutes without caring about the result. The chefs turned around a bunch of people they liked and the whole thing felt muddled.

    The Taste takes the "Voice" format--blind auditions producing "teams" of contestants chosen by four judges who double as mentors--and turns it into something better than the original, if your definition of a better reality contest includes more rational and less insulting to the intelligence.

    The Taste is like an endless retread of MasterChef by way of the multiple judge/mentor set-up of The Voice, only this time with blind tastings as the gimmick. Which isn't nearly as enjoyable as watching judges operate those revolving chairs. The judges are a mixed bag.

    While The Taste certainly works hard to foster a sense of excitement and tickle the palate, this appetizer feels like just the latest half-baked competition idea that doesn't deliver.
