I liked the show on Ghana better than I thought I would. But did you notice how hot and sweaty Tony looked the entire time? He looked really uncomfortable (physically) but he seemed to enjoy his trip very much.

I think that being hot and sweaty is a prerequisite to being in west coast Africa. I liked that they ate barracuda, it is a great eating fish that NEVER gets noticed. The market where he ate all that pork and spinach and stuff had me drooling. Looked GREAT! I would love to have his job.

Well, I'm not so sure I'd want to have his job when he was eating raw seal liver, meat, & blubber in one of his last shows. While I do love sushi, that was definitely a turnoff for me.

Has anyone watched his show on Morocco. That was an awesome one. I was really amazed when he went off far into the desert and stayed in a tent with a local goat or sheep herder family and savored a simple meal and was polite at all times.

He truly is a foodie. I also remember an episode which he did in South America where he tried an iguana. He truly was turned off. He still tried it but he said it was the worst thing he had ever had. It was like rubber. Now you gotta be extremely adventurous to try eating that.

I do get hooked when I start watching his shows. I like to watch real tv rather than the dolled up celebrity chefs (Giada, Racheal and Sandra Le being some of them) that Food T.V. showcases. To me the glam sham and shows related to their getaways/roadtrips are absolutely lackluster.

Amen, Yakuta. I absolutely HATE all the new Food Network shows with everyone suddenly "on the road". The shows are staged up the wazoo & positively ridiculous. The entire Food Network has virtually turned into the Rachel Ray/Emeril/PaulaDeen/Giada channel. Nine times out of 10 when you switch that channel on, one of them is on. Too sad.

Count me in as another ex-viewer of the Food Network. I rarely watch it anymore because its all the same crap or crap you don't give two rips about. I watch some of the cooking shows on PBS.
And oh yeah, I watch Tony on Monday nights!
