    Thank you. I fell asleep both times I tried to watch it (original prime time and the late-night repeat).

        I do, and even a DVR on my pc (but it's not hooked up to my cable, used to work great with antenna, but doesn't work with cable - damn TW!). I could hook up my VCR, but I think I just don't want to commit myself to that much television.

      I have set up my DVR to record every episode of No Reservations, that airs. I actually have this set up on 2 tvs in my apt and oddly the Beirut episode was not recorded on either tv. Why would that be? Was it called something else?

        Yeah, they did that with El Bulli special too... It's called Anthony Bourdain in Beirut

        If you have a Tivo, you can do a wishlist with Anthony Bourdain in addition to your seasonpass...

          Thanks - that is so annoying. The people who are responsible for programming at these stations should really start to recognize that new technologies change the way things should be named (or changed). I don't have TIVO, just regular DVR through my cable provider, the stellar Time Warner (that's a joke). I'll see if they have a similar option.

          It wasn't actually tagged as "No Reservations" so Tivo would miss it. Set up a Wishlist for Bourdain and it will catch it.

          This program was considered a special presentation and not part of Bourdain's series. I watched it and, because the war broke out just one day after his arrival in Beirut, it's not surprising that the program did not revolve around his dining adventures. He had one dinner at a casual restaurant the first night. Then, later on, he was given access to the kitchen in the hotel where he and his crew are staying, and he cooked a dinner. Fortunately, they weren't in any immediate danger. Lots of lying around the hotel pool waiting for the US Marines to finally come to the rescue.

            I just saw an ad for Anthony Bourdain in Beirut. For those of you like me that don't have Travel Channel, they are going to show it on TLC Wednesday night!
