The most painful television series to endure, 21 October 2011
Author: Jared North from United States

Anthony Bourdain may perhaps be the worst example of an American ever. I don't know what it is about him that bugs me...Perhaps it's his liberalistic ideology, his smug personality, his cultural ignorance, or maybe it's his failed attempts to be a ladies man. Anthony is a painful reminder of what happens after you hit a mid-life crisis. He feels inclined to prove that he is the most intelligent human being on Earth and he just won't stop until you are convinced.

Bourdain's show is just an excuse for his cockiness and cultural ignorance. He insists on showing either stereotypical examples of every location he visits or the far extremes or them. Sure we all wish we could have his job and get paid to travel from place to place, but we all know that most of us will never have it. This is what attracts viewers to let some strange tall lanky man with a beer belly show us his idea of what a country should have or be like instead of the viewers attempting to experience themselves.

Honestly, no one deserves to have their country stereotyped by an ex-druggie, unimaginably dry humored, insincere person who receives praise from fans unwilling to expand their horizons. I don't claim to be a writer, just a normal viewer of television who is fed up with pointless shows and the lack of though put into these programs. Anthony insists upon himself even more than Rosie O'Donnell...who's show I'm almost certain I would rather watch. Save your time and currently unbiased thoughts before he takes both from you.
