Feasting On Asphalt?

Does anybody know if the FN is doing a third season of Feastin On Asphalt with Alton Brown? I really enjoyed the first two seasons and would like to see a third one. What do you think?

  1. yeah, there's a third season already filming (or done filming, perhaps). it's actually called "feasting on waves," as it's now a boat-based show that--according to wikipedia--will circle the caribbean. good times!

      I wonder if they consulted with Henry Winkler before attempting to jump that shark? ;-)

      I thought the glimpse of americana through road food was this series strongpoint.

        I agree with your assessment of the show. There's no way people are going to relate to a show based on boating the way they relate to road food. It might be interesting, but I'm doubt it can have the same feeling of classic Americana.

          Unless maybe they get Jimmy Buffett to co-host. Some of Bourdain's best were Caribbean destinations over the years. Calvin Trillin wrote with great love for the fish at Baxters Road in Barbados. I could see this working, especially if they actually get off the boat at these places, as opposed to simply trying to eat on the boat at dockside places - that would be way too limiting.

          Who said it had to be Americana? Maybe they're just expanding their world view a bit at a time. This year the Carribean, maybe next year they'll motorcycle through the Italian Alps - the Piemonte or Lombardia, or the other alps - in New Zealand. How about Japan from Kagoshima to Sapporo, stopping at every other hole-in-the wall or food cart. I'd watch that in a NY minute.

        I seem to recall hearing something about airplane or airport food for the next installment....

      3. I enjoy this show, I am not sure I would like a boating or airplane segment. I hope they keep it as it is just travel different parts of the country.

        1. I think for season 4 he's taking a segway through a food court.


          1. I'm hoping for the best here. The basic fact is I like the feel of the shows. Very well filmed and I love coastal life, so hopefully they deliver another strong series. There's a lot of very interesting culture he can delve into with the islands, visiting rum shops and the like.
