Anyone watched Final Table the new Netflix food competition show yet?

I found him the most annoying to watch.
I agree. From his "Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnng Japan!" at every opportunity to the constant try-hard posing, and the over the top mannerisms. He was the one chef I didn't want to win and was actively hoping would get booted. The Japanese chef on the other hand seemed super chilled out, and I wished he had been around for longer.

Give the same concept to the guys from Masterchef Australia and it could be phenomenal.

Got to finally finish this. Really enjoyed it overall, but I was a bit disappointed with the last two episodes. Not just because my faves kept getting knocked out but the finalists/winner seemed to converge to a similar style/palate and the narration got overly dramatic. Was also disappointed for the push for Timothy by Achatz and the repeated French Laundry namedrops. Almost felt like he had a bit of an inside track.

Just got done watching this.

I really enjoyed the show overall, but

Timothy winning really annoyed me.

Was hoping for one of the Australians.

At least Darren didn't win. He was such a try-hard from the get-go.

I just finished it too. Same for me. The show was entirely about how creative these people were while still making a delicious and well presented dish....
and then the guy who makes something from his own menu with almost no variation wins.

I half watched it with my wife, and the show ending like this felt like a real copout to me. All these people creating interesting dishes on the fly, and then
this guy just makes a thing he's made a hundred times
? Get outta here with that shit.
