Season 3 is a great example of Hell's Kitchen during its peak years (in my opinion Seasons 1-6). I mean, it's HK, so any season you watch is bound to be entertaining. But this came when the show was perfecting its formula and before things got really nuts and less "realistic" with 20+ cooks stuffed in there. So if that appeals to you, you'll enjoy this just like I did. None of the contestants are really awful (except for Melissa later on) and they are better in the kitchen than the Season 2 crew by far. The winner was kind of easy to predict after the sentimental favorite was gone, but I think Ramsay made the right decision. This is also one of the last seasons with DVD extras included--maybe the last unless Season 4 had them--and those are pretty interesting too. The bottom line is, if you have not seen S3 before, I highly recommend it.
