i did not realize that last season was the last season. I guess there is only so many animal penis you can eat before it gets old.

  1. I got a smidge excited when I saw your post. I had felt that his show had gotten a same old, same old (penis) feel to it. But this sounds very bland. I like No Reservations because, when he gets away from food, he doesn't mind speaking up about the politics, etc. But, of course, the two men ARE very different, aren't they? Anyway, thank for sharing this and we'll TiVo it

      I actually find Bourdain boring when he strays into his political commentary. He usually says nothing but vague cliches that seem to have meaning enhanced by camera angles that show him alone pondering the world.

        Well, I'll admit that I kinda have the hots for Tony :) (I've always been attracted to the "bad boys" though I didn't marry one.) So you're probably right.

        I do wish it were more about food but both shows are the Travel Channel, aren't they?

    2. My impression, from watching the preview of the new show, was that the old one evolved into the new. Same people, same style, just less focus on the foods, and more on cultures and events. In a sense No Reservations changed in the same way.

      1. I actually enjoyed Bizarre Food (more than No Res). This new show just doesn't sound very exciting from a foodie perspective.

        1. As long as they remove the microphone from his molar, I'm good with it.

          1. I've always liked the guy and wish his new show luck.
