Jamie's Kitchen continues to be one of the more interesting shows on TV. Considering how much Jamie Oliver has on the line, he's being admirably understanding about how much support his trainees require.
What's slightly frustrating is the way that hints are dropped that there are things going on in the background which we're not being shown but which affect the trainees. For example, single parent Michelle complained to Jamie this evening that she'd been promised help with child support but none had been forthcoming until almost the end of the college course when it was too late. Was it really that whatever administrative backup was in place screwed up, or was she making excuses? It's a rather significant distinction.
