Man up, nancy boy and put on your apron.

Has anyone mentioned that you put on your confrontational underoos today?

I really like this show.

JolobinSmokin: I really like this show.


The cinematography and overall production values of it blow the ever living shiat of No Reservations out of the water. And I liked NR a lot.

That episode was hilarious...  I have to agree that the production value is excellent. I also like the spoonful of political analysis added into the show.

I would like to see the unedited version of this if it ever was shown. Bourdain's description was pretty damn funny.

AB's record when it comes to fishing, or pretty much anything water related, isn't that good.
And if you see him on an ATV, get the fark outta the way.
Still, one of the best shows on tv.

Heyyyy.....
These aren't mine.

He should have worn one of these over there; Sicilians dig Godfather stuff.

No, but I've gone to watch recorded episodes and found that instead of Anthony Bourdain I have an hours worth of the latest manufactured bullshiat news from CNN

it took me 3 tries to get the damn L.A. episode recorded

Possibly the best show on basic cable.

I was amazed at what they didn't edit out.  The polar opposite of the Jerusalem episode, and both are some of the best on TV right now.

Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential" reminded me of the horror of working in a restaurant that was not staffed by Bourdain, but  by sloppy mouthbreathing cokeheads absent the requisite farks.

That sequence was great. In the past he would have just made a quip about "stunt fish" and moved on, but I think the fact they didn't even take him to a spot where they could try and fail for a few hours first really got to him.
 
2013-10-15 08:14:55 PM
Didn't think his show was still on
 
2013-10-15 08:55:34 PM
Hmm, DVR says it'll be on Friday night. No conflicts, hit record.

Goes with the name of the show, no? You never know what you're going to get.
 
2013-10-15 10:10:45 PM
Good lord, if all out takes to get this guy into a drunken tizzy is some dead fish thrown into the water, maybe he needs to up his meds.
 
2013-10-15 10:32:24 PM
Tony, I love you.  Really, I do.  I own all your books.  I'm an avid viewer since A Chef's Tour.  I love Parts Unknown and I'm happy you're working again since No Reservations went off the air.

But for the love of god.  YOU'RE IN FARKING SICILY.  You weren't sent up to the North Pole or into Namibia or Detroit.  You're in farking Italy.  So some fisherman threw some dead seafood at your head.  Deal with it.

It's amusing when he comments about eating horse.

I find Anthony Bordain to be unbearably sexy. Misanthropes make my girly parts tingle.
 
2013-10-15 11:42:38 PM
For some unknown reason I can't explain, I haven't really been watching Parts Unknown, but, thank God for On Demand.

I have always been a half-way Bourdain fan- his show No Rez can be ok, one of his books was good. This show is quickly becoming must-watch tv, however.... I love that his more crotchety side is allowed to shine through.

Wasn't that the point of Kitchen Confidential? That he was a coked up no-farks-given washout-loser in the kitchen?

Anyway, the episode sounds par for Anthony Bourdain, the anti-Travel Channel host. "F This, F You, I'm drunk". Love all his shows, I love the unvarnished "This sucks, but I love this, I love you, you suck, that sucks, this is surprisingly good" with wicked humor, whereas all the other shows are 100% everything-is-awesome-all-the-time

That sounds was every Farker sitting upright in their lazy boy in the basement to check your profile.

Anybody watching "The Getaway"?

It's basically a remake of "The Layover" with the same crew, the same locations, the same features, but with people like Joel McHale and Aziz Ansari in the Anthony Bourdain role. It's rather disorienting.
 
2013-10-16 09:13:13 AM
Read and seen everything of Bourdain, including his criminally underrated Le Halles cookbook. I have few heroes, he's one of them.
So far, when it comes to PU, I like the Congo episode the best. Quite an eye opener on African history, no doubt.

We should hang out. My dislike of humanity would be like riding a washing machine on a brick floor running a load of heavily soiled overalls for you.

I was early on, but it seems to have straightened out since then.

His trip was Denmark was epic, if only for the amount of smiling he did.

I had the opposite problem, I only caught the Burma episode while flipping thru the channels on a fluke (knew the show was coming but not the date) and I have yet to see the first 1/3 of the Jerusalem episode because my DVR thought it was on at 8.

The only thing worth watching on CNN is him.

just the right level of Hunter S. Thompson-esque cynicism
