Unique and beautiful scenery, food, and most importantly, people.
12 July 2009 | by RyoGTOSee all my reviews

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations is one of the few reasons why I bother turning on my television. It is one of those shows that just sticks out above the rest. Each episode brings something new to the table; the show is not always perfect, varying in many ways from episode to episode, but that diversity is what makes the show so entertaining to watch and keeps the viewer coming back for more.

In No Reservation's not only does the viewer see the differences between the locals of each culture and area, but it is filmed with the narrative of Tony's unique perspective. We watch as he struggles to grasp the beauty in many things, but grasp it he does. And although he may seem somewhat cynical at times, we see him enjoying many personal experiences with some wonderful people, in beautiful and enchanting places.

So, I had thought that it might be a good idea to clear up the difference between the cynical attitude that he carries and that associated with a pessimist. I must say although he is sometimes very cynical, he does it in humor. If he was a pessimist he would not so thoroughly enjoy his surroundings, and would not find such joy in the the many simple things in which he has a knack for finding. No... Anthony is not a pessimist. If anything, he has the light of an optimist shining through the prism of a realist's troubled mind. Furthermore Anthony, relative to most television personalities and travel hosts, is the complete opposite of what most would think of as a pretentious human being. He does his best not to sugar-coat things or himself. And while it could be argued that we are all pretentious to some extent; he tries, like the show's name implies, to have no reservations about what he will and does encounter. He often thoroughly throws himself into situations and cultures, entertaining new concepts. Bourdain does his best to make himself and his show an open book, and that is one of the spices that make No Reservations so flavorful.

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations is a show about life, culture, and detail. The show's given a unique flavor with it's no bull-crap host as he shares his curious or comedic insights into situations. But most of all this show is about enjoying each unique culture's beautiful scenery, food, and most importantly it's people.
