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.

Some hit and miss episodes
1 June 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Chef Anthony Bourdain travels the world sampling food, seeing different cultures, and having a few drinks on CNN's dime.

The biggest problem of this show is that I can't buy Bourdain's review of the food. Sometimes the food looks really good, but it's impossible to rely on Anthony's tastes. Apparently he loves everything. I don't think he has said a bad word about any thing he has eaten. That can't be right.

There is the travelogue part of the show. I'm always a sucker for that. The show works best when he goes to someplace unusual. I still remember the Libya show. That was crazy. Sometimes it's boring like Vegas.

Then there is the social commentary from Anthony. Sometimes it's interesting, but most of the times, it's tiresome. I don't particular find it that enlightening like the Mexico show. He tells us that there is drug violence in Mexico. Color me shocked.

This show has some good points. Bourdain is always up for anything. There is some interesting food happening. And they are usually away from the tourist traps which is interesting. However some of it does get boring especially if he gets preachy.
