Seasons in Detail



Comedian Lenny Henry stars in this sitcom as Gareth Blackstock, a top British chef with a temperamental and often explosive mood.

Set in the highly respectable Le Chateau Anglais restaurant in the English countryside, Gareth is dedicated to cooking the perfect cuisine. He is undeniably talented, but unfortunately he embodies all the worst qualities of someone in his profession - poor people skills.

Gareth has an endless supply of inventive insults for anyone from paying customers to hard-working staff - including his childhood friend and commis chef, Everton. The only person managing to avoid most of Gareth's insults is his patient, professional wife, Janice. But there is only so much even she can tolerate.
