This is such an incredible series. it goes beyond food and really digs deep into the people themselves, their culture and struggles. Ive never watched a TV show this good and genuine since Deadliest Catch. many episodes really take you so far away from your seating positing its unbelievable and a seriously emotional ride. you may never feel this way about another show on television especially in this day and age.

While I have no interest in food shows I often have CNN on during the day so when I switch over to serious nighttime viewing his show often pops up on my HT screen. At first I often jumped away to watch one of my the many DVR'd shows. But lately I watch me some Anthony Bourdain. The guy is a real talent and I could see handling many subjects, even nature. Watch out Sir David Attenborough.

Queens episode was terrific and he's correct - Sunnyside has had good restaurants and pubs for generations.

Sorry I cant watch anything this loser chef does. He couldn't handle the pressure of being a line cook and went over the edge into drug addiction.

Bourdain is a loser who has couldn't cut it as a line cook why would I watch his angry sexist leftist CNN loving reviews.

Hmm, he gave up long hours late into each night, on his feet, with little pay, while sweating his ass off in the kitchen, to travel the world making millions while doing so. Doesn't seem like the actions of a loser to me. As well, he did a little drug and astral traveling experimentation, Big deal.

I streamed a few episodes years ago and found it rather mundane... they quickly became a blur.

Wow! Do you have a link to verify your claims, or is this your attempt at fake news?

BTW, I have always enjoyed Anthony Bourdain and his unique views on life and living.

Google Anthony Bourdain and read his bio. He is a recovering heroin addict. Reading is fundamental dearest!
