My favorite episode of all time is when AB goes to Mongolia and feasts on broiled donkey dong. It's like an episode of Fear Factor.

The No Reservations show was great, but it mostly focused on food and was a Travelogue second. Parts Unknown flips that around, its mostly a Travelogue with a little bit about the food. I can not tell you how many times I've been in a conversation about this or that aspect of the world, and the only reason I know anything about this or that topic is because I watch this show. Its basically contemporary history.

Believe it or not, there are often much more important things to talk about than dinner in many impoverished and/or war torn foreign nations around the world where this show is shot. Not every television program is going to be a mindless meandering list of topics that only impact American recipe lists and pop culture while ignoring anything important to other people in the world, some shows are actually meant to educate.

In a sea of seriously sigh-inducing series which pander only to the lowest common denominator with attention attacking headlines and overblown melodrama, a master chef of all people, has brought a level-headed and insightful peek into the lives of those in the world around us which many professional reporters are too busy worrying about ratings to take on. I, for one of many, unabashedly applaud his integrity. Time and time again it's been proved that it's often the people you'd least expect to know what they're talking about who outshow the most celebrated "news" casters of the click-bait/action news era.

Anthony Bourdain, culinary king and hilarious Archer celebrity guest-starring insult smith has now cemented himself among the ranks of legends like Jon Stewart as yet another intelligent human being with basic common sense who can stand with the best of cable's nonsense newsmen and give them a few pointers on proper news presentation. The show is intriguing, informative, entertaining and educational, not simply in terms of international cuisine but conflicts and complex social constructs as well. It's magnificently made in each and every way from shots, to scripts and settings and it deserves every bit of success it receives.

Anthony Bourdain, an American chef, author, and television personality, travels the world uncovering lesser known places and exploring cultures and cuisine.

He also appears as a guest judge on Top Chef. Sharp wit as well as knives!
