Best The Bear Episodes
Watchseries; I really enjoyed this show. Binge watched it. For those who think it's like Shameless, it's much more of a drama, not a comedy, although there was some comedy in it. It's been awhile since we've watched anything about cooking, and my husband even liked it.

The Bear watchseries. This show is mostly in the kitchen...I come from a culinary kitchen experience background, from the dumps to fine dining so may e this show just speaks to me...idk but it's fun!!
Lip makes a sandwich. I really good sandwich. It would be funny to have it in the chicagoverse of all the shows based there. It does have that feel how Shameless was filmed. I've liked it all so far, good meal.
This is one of the richest, well developed stories of people. Given a high stress environment which we all know of as Life, how we all pick our ways through. Life is hard, unpredictable, complicated and messy. Our action and reactions make it brilliant, painful and exciting. Food is every humans center. And this show highlights the work it takes as individual people, with individual opinions, ideas and experiences to work together. Such a refreshing view of people, with all their layers, creating something so amazing!
I wouldn't call this a "comedy" though it does have many humorous portions. Every character is a complicated human-which we all are. So well put together, you can't help but see yourself in one form or another in every character, including and sometimes highlighting our defects, and how that can still makes us stronger together than apart.
Highly recommend! Especially if you're tired of seeing Hollywood "reality" which is never real at all! Kudos to the entire cast, crew, writers and so on that bring this brilliant show to us!
Thank you Hulu as well.
Great acting, writing, direction. Shots and scenes are artful and not pretentious, soundtrack choice is excellent. Having worked in a kitchen and a fan of cooking/food shows, Bourdain, this is well conceived masterpiece.
Sure the episodes are short and only 8 episodes, but if that was its first and only season, it was short and sweet, and even the little bit of filler made sense. A nice tight package, a must watch!
Most accurate representation of working in a kitchen i've seen in a tv show so far. The only beef i had was the main dude never wearing head covering, and you never see anyone washing their hands. The sous chef character sydney is more or less spot on. Also i get they are not trying to glorify excessive drinking because of the alcoholism backstory, but to not show then getting drinks once after work to decompress and complain about the shift is kinda weird and a big part of the culture for better or worse.
