It really does keep getting better
I have been a fan of Bourdain since "a cook's tour", I have a few of his books, and have been a fan of this series since day 1. Its really amazing to see how this show has progressed through the years. I was thrilled to see the team win an Emmy, and im sure there are more on the way.
This is by far the best show on TV, exploring culture, food, as if you are side by side with Tony...and with the high level of writing and cinematography, you get quite a bargain for a season price for 14.99.
I really hope this show never ends, if Tony does someday decide to do something else, then the rest of the team's creative vision would still keep me watching, even with another host.
Zero point zero + Tony Bourdain = 2 thumbs way up, five star by default.
thanks for so many enjoyable episodes!
One of the best shows
This show is hands down the best show on the Travel Channel, and I think on television. This season is definitely my favorite. I think Istanbul is my favorite episode, but Brittany is great also. Anthony Bourdain's humor is what makes the show, its hilarious. He really gets to the heart of the place he visits, he points out the ridiculous and the sublime.
I definitely recommend buying some episodes of this show.
Credit card scam?
I am really happy with all of the new episodes so far. The sarcasm and wit is at an all time high along with the camera work. But what is up with the Chase Saphire credit card shots? Is the Travel Channel in such a hard spot economically that they had to start taking corporate sponsors for No Reservations? I buy these shows so I don't have to watch commercials and now they are being snuck into the content! Blah. But that's just my personal gripe. 3 seconds of credit card pan won't ruin my life.
