Mudbug - you need to do what I did: get yourself your own tv & satellite box in another room.

Husband is currently downstairs enjoying his hockey game, while I'm up here enjoying Tony Bourdain.

Or get a DVR so you can record all these episodes.

The one in Japan was my favorite. Osaka looks like an amazing place for foodies!!!

I, too, have gotten fed up with the food network. As a person who has lived a huge part of my life "on the road" I find those shows very fake -- not just staged, but also exaggerated and way too in-your-face loud. The shows are less and less about food, almost never about cooking, and more about personalities. I don't watch these shows to have someone yell and whoop, and I certainly don't want fashion models posing behind pots that are wider than their hips.

I enjoyed the "Japan" show too, but also really enjoyed the one on "New Jersey" since, as a native New Yorker, I had friends & relatives from there. It was VERY funny - particularly the "Godfather" ending with Mario Batali.

i caught a few minutes of the las vegas show. it was funny how being a new yorker, the "new york city" in vegas kind of annoyed him. it was too clean, like a disney version. no rats, litter, or fear for your life.

i also saw a few minutes of another show. it looked like he was in the west indies or the caribbean, and he was eating (and actually enjoying) a giant bowl of a pot au feu. it had whole crabs, hard boiled eggs, meat, and a bunch of other stuff in a spicey stew. anyone see that episode? what country was it?

There's a Vietnamese dish for a Pork Stew With Tofu & Hard-Boiled Eggs, so I'm thinking it must have been the Indonesian/Malaysian episodes. I do remember him eating the dish; just can't recall which episode it was since I sinfully behaved like a couch potato yesterday & watched all of them - lol!!
