I bought this for my boyfriend's Christmas present, since this was his favorite season of "Top Chef." I have only been watching "Top Chef" for about two years now, so I hadn't seen this season until I watched it with him. Now that I have watched the entire season, I must agree this was the best one. The cast were all talented, and everyone on that season had the personality for TV. Not many reality TV shows are compelling anymore, but this season was exceptional. I'd say any 'Top Chef" fan needs to see this season.
