I, as usual, gave a pass to last night's show (but did watch the Anthony Bourdain LA repeat), but a friend confirmed your report, Shannon, that last night's "Bizarre Foods" show was much more viewer friendly than usual.

I might just have to catch it next time around.

The commercials touting this show were enough to turn me off.

I am soooo not watching it.

I like the show but he gives me the creeps. He was served a lamb dish in Morroco where it's customary to eat with ones hand, one hand only...the right one...the left is used for something else. He started with his right hand but you could see it coming...wait for it...sure enough both hands went in the pot, smacking the lips, sucking the bones, finger licking (shudder). Wow! The more I type the more I dislike him, I'll stop now.

Okay - I have to admit it. The guy is growing on me.

Last night's show touring the U.S. Gulf Coast was terrific. The only time I averted my eyes was when they were cleaning the "chittlins" - lol!!! But that's just a personal thing.

And Zimmern was truly gracious to everyone hosting him. I particularly have to give him kudos re: his visit to the little soul food shack/restaurant where they served him raccoon & possum. Not to mention that anyone who can rave about Nutria, which to me is just a lateral step from a big rat (lol!), definitely has guts.

All in all, it was a very interesting & fun show to watch. Much much better than the usual "what I can eat that will really gross people out" stuff.

Next Monday he'll be in the UK & Scotland, & I'm actually looking forward to watching it.

I like the show I have it pre-programmed in my dvr so I don't miss it....it just amazes me the things he eats ....I bet his parents just loved having him sit down at the table.

I love this show. I can't tell you how disappointed I am that the format of the show has changed. It looks like Andrew Zimmern now has a straight travel show that's not centered around food? I'm hoping this is a separate show and not a replacement. Anyway, it was horrible. He went to Turkey and was almost naked half the time wrestling, getting massages, in public baths, etc. No offense to Andrew, but I'd rather see him eating weird food in his clothes than naked talking about wrestling.
