SERIES PREMIERE: Once again, strutting chef Gordon Ramsay has taken a successful entry from his string of hit British cooking shows and adapted it for American viewers, starring again in the process. This time it’s based on The F Word, a sort of one-hour “food variety” series, encompassing interviews, taped field pieces, and a one-off cooking competition, that premiered in the U.K. a dozen years ago.

Last week, Ray Stussy (Ewan McGregor) went down the path of revenge, hoping to find and confront, and punish, the thugs who had beaten up his fiancé, Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Instead, he was detoured by twin brother Emmit, who asked for a quick meeting to settle old scores. They did so, but not in the way either had intended – and now Nikki is in severe danger from those same thugs of Varga’s, without Ray there to help her. And Varga (David Thewlis, pictured) is
