I keep forgetting to DVR this, but I'm watching it via Fox On Demand on FiOS right now... and I'm pretty sure it's finally HD. It is reeeeeeally sh*tty HD though (or maybe this is the quality of all Fox On Demand programming?). If someone else wants to weigh in, feel free. Will DVR tomorrow's episode for a second look.

I have been watching it also, sure does look familiar. How many seasons can they keep showing people screw up cooking Scallops?

Still in WS SD. Maybe if they start finishing their dinners the producers will upgrade to HD.

I think it looks fine, better then a lot of other true HD stuff out there. And still enjoying the series, even though it hasn't changed through out the years.

It has always looked to me like a mix of HD, good WS SD, and bad WS SD.

I watch. I can tell it isn't real HD. A shame. Also they keep cooking the same dishes. I wish they would try some different stuff to screw up so he could yell that something else is raw besides scallops.

I thought DVRing tonight's episode would help, but it only raised more questions. My impression after watching the VOD version was that it was HD, but now watching the live feed, I'd say definitely not. I'm tempted to say that the kitchen/main restaurant set is HD and nothing else is, but from a production standpoint that doesn't make any sense.

My wife has been claiming that one member of Hell's Kitchen is a dead ringer for a character from Men in Black.
She found an image of that character and we present the evidence:

The HK guy:
448
And now the MIB guy:
700


She thinks that Hell's Kitchen would be much more entertaining if, during the next kitchen competition, he turned into a giant bug and swallowed Gordon Ramsey whole.

Seems like this season is more scripted than usual.

We think more Revenge of the Nerds.

He's kinda going over the top with kicking people out of the kitchen this year.
