    UGH!

    Torpid excuse for a domesticized version of an already classic cooking competition show from Japan. The four American Iron Chefs are out of the question, even if I must say to me it just ain't the original IC. And William Shatner isn't helping anything, neither. I only recommend this for die-hard Iron Chef fans who also liked 'Iron Chef America: Battle of the Masters.' Oh, yeah, and by the way, Takeshi Kaga is a fox.
