Storyline

Anthony Bourdain had no reservations about a move to CNN. Shortly after concluding an eight-season stint at the helm of his popular Travel Channel series, the equally popular Emmy-winning host came to the news network searching for "Parts Unknown." In the hourlong weekend series -- similar in premise to Travel's "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (2005)" -- Bourdain explores the world to, he says, "eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice ... they open up to you in ways that somebody visiting who is driven by a story may not get." Enticed by the opportunity to experience cultures rarely visited by American TV, such as in the Congo, Libya and Myanmar, the chef and best-selling author also takes viewers to Colombia, Peru, Morocco and, closer to home, Koreatown in Los Angeles.

Low on food content
5 July 2014 | by Dukes_SheepSee all my reviews

I really liked "No Reservations" then lost "The Travel Channel" on my cable provider and was glad to see Bourdain move over to CNN. Then I watched a few episodes and quit watching since it was less about different culture's food and more about social commentary.

Every now and then I'll flip it back and can catch one to see if its returned to a food focus and its seems to be sliding towards more social.

I can understand that focus due to its being aired on CNN but its not why the majority of people tune in to see a show starring Bourdain.

So I'll pass and whenever there is absolutely nothing else on I'll tune in again and see if it back to food but I doubt it will happen.
