Where's Sam?This season is pretty smack on, aside from one glaring error -- no Sam. Pretty surprising. But maybe he had another gig? He's missed. But the show must go on. And this season rocks, big time..Score: 5/5

WinnerI am pumped about the cast of this show! I loved just about every one of these contestants--they were all entertaining. One problem though, it will be hard to see any of them go, like Fabio, Richard, Angelo, Carla, etc. I would root for them all!.Score: 5/5

Richard, you're Top Chef!I'm so happy Richard won TOP CHEF ALL STARS! he deserves it. I'm a fan. Michael did a great job too. But Richie is the strongest chef..Score: 5/5

Best season yetThis is what many cooking competitions haven't done yet. Bringing returning top competitors back is great because now you got people you can root for/ boo from the very start. Now you can see which season is going to get bragging rights and who should have never had a second chance. This would be better if they added the winners of each season in this as well, but so far the season hasn't disappointed..Score: 5/5

Itunes is a FAILI'm so glad that I paid for the season pass so that itunes can hold episodes hostage instead of letting me download them. Really awesome service..Score: 1/5

ITunes waaaaay tooooooo slooooow with new epsI'd give this show the full 5 stars if I were rating Top Chef - the show itself. As a full on Apple ,my low rating is because of iTunes' inconsistent and often days' late TV episode download availability. Most of us have now learned (the hard way) NOT to buy the "Season Pass" for any iTunes TV shows (because usually, eps are so often NOT made available the next day with the Season Pass - whereas they are usually available the very next day for non Season Pass customers to individually download). But with this season of Top Chef, opting out of the Season Pass and going straight for the weekly downloads has been just as problematic. With times when an ep has not been available for a full week after airing on TV. Very disappointing..Score: 2/5

Hello?I can see the new episode in the list. It's there. But WHY can't I download it as a Season Pass holder? Why does it take longer to match me up with someone who gets the show each week? I don't understand it!.Score: 2/5

Lose LakshmiI'm enjoying this season, but I think Padma Lakshmi is ridiculous. I don't think you can find a host who cares less about the food or the competitors. It's all about how her hair can blow in the breeze as she walks from a door to a car....this season would be so much more enjoyable with a host who showed even a minute level of interest in the topic of the show..Score: 4/5

I love the showIts a great show and really fun to watch all the past chef's compete against each other. Having chef's that have been on the show before really adds a fun twist. Wish they would get episodes up sooner. I will buying future season passes for this reason.Score: 5/5

What an ending to the second episode!My family and I have watched the last 4 seasons religiously and have LOVED every bit of it. This season however seems to have a malice to it starting with Anthony B's totally disrespecting Fabio the first show, to Jens totally unprofessional breakdown at the end of episode 2. Both of these episodes were teaching points to my kids as how NOT to act when you're on TV. What makes it worst is that we have always really loved both Anthony B and Jen. I look forward to seeing more of Carla, Angelo, and Fabio, who's fabulous cooking, kind and gentle natures make it not only fun to watch, but inspiring as well. Everybody this season, from some of the judges to some of the chefs, need to take their daggers and use them for some something more constructive, like cooking..Score: 5/5
