It would likely be more entertaining that anything Anthony Bourdain has ever done.

You poor, pathetic little man. I actually pity you sometimes.

Yes because of all the reality shows on TV No Reservsations and The Layover are clrearly the least entertaining.

So not only are you a moron when it comes to politics, but your taste in television sucks too. You were not your parents' favorite, were you?

Actually, I really REALLY want that show. A lot.


/some of his shows get a bit boring, every now and then. But he really TRIES to keep it real; something to be said for that.

Isn't standard practice to blur out corporate logos on TV shows to some extant? I've seen other shows do this as well.

I'd love to see some of those concepts as part of a parody of modern television

If you want a parody of modern television, just switch on TLC or TruTV at any given time.

Gosh, a double-duty thread shiatter troll. Might as well head over to Politics

Anthony Bourdain would like you to know that he is smarter, better-looking, more edgy and ironic than you will ever be.

That's not parody, that's travesty or tragedy

bourdain is going to CNN?

calm like a bomb: Say what you like, the man knows how to incinerate a bridge.


The Travel Channel has changed hands a few times and the current owners decided to cash in on the Bourdain brand. Turns out his contracts have explicitly prohibited this, so I'm not sure who burned the bridge

If there was only a restaurant where you could eat a meal cooked by him.

Well, there is the place he used to work, Les Halles.

He also has a hotter wife, has a better job, makes more money, travels more, has more interesting friends, drives better cars, eats better food, lives in a better part of the country and generally is funnier and more entertaining.
YMMV

You can, his house.

He even upgraded.

Bourdain is awesome.

The Travel Channel sucks now, we used to watch it all the time but now they just completely suck, I can't even tell you what's on any longer. TV used to be constantly on them but now we just watch old reruns of rick steives or when the DVR decides to record his new episodes, well at least ones we have never watched.

Anthony Bourdain reminds me a lot of Huell Howser. Just watchable and likable for some reason
 
2013-01-10 01:47:09 PM
I like that he appreciates both a fine meal at a fancy restaurant, and a greasy snack from some guy with a food cart.

Don't forget the coke. The piles and piles of coke that he has done more of than you

As a long time fan I think he's in the process of selling out

Yeah but the problem is that 'edgy and ironic' have turned into 'old, burned out and grumpy'

'The Bobby Gold Stories' ftw.

born_yesterday: I like that he appreciates both a fine meal at a fancy restaurant, and a greasy snack from some guy with a food cart.


This. I personally loved the Czech episode for multiple reasons: The Czechs love to drink (it's in our blood) and he doesn't stand down to taking shots of slivovitz, he ate at nice restaurants and the carts (I liked how the guide guy was thinking, "wtf? dude, it's fried cheese with mayo on a walmart bun... why are you still eating these? THAT'S YOUR 4TH SAUSAGE, STOP!") and then goes and mingles with the locals and their homemade food (getting drunk at 8am while watching a pig get slaughtered and then tasting everything that was made from the hog and seemingly loving it). That episode alone was enough for me to look into and start cooking food that my ancestors would have made. (I'm Hungarian, Serbian, and Slovakian. Before all the border restructuring, Prague would have been roughly where my ancestors were from) And the best part is that the food is damn amazing. If it weren't for his show and him showing not just how awesome Prague looks as a city but also how cultural food impacts a region, I wouldn't have ever considered trying more ethnic and diverse foods and for that I thank him.

Why on earth would I want to eat in a restaurant owned by a TV celebrity?

the guy spent 25 years cooking in restaurants, you missed the window. Don't act as though he's never stepped in a professional kitchen.

Bourdain is the best food-related celebrity on tv. He can eat at Le Bernardin or eat poutine and be equally happy. That is a guy who just loves food.

Envy really brings out the abject assholes on the net. It's like some kind of cocksucker litmus test.
