    5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Tony for a little dough June 5, 2012
    By B. Sims
    Verified Purchase
    The description of this collection doesn't clearly explain what you're getting in this collection, so here it is- nine discs:

    Disc 1 - Sweden, Puerto Rico, Quebec, Mexico/US Border
    Disc 2 - India ( Rajasthan), India (Kolkata/Mumbai), Korea, Indonesia, Ireland
    Disc 3 - Ghana, Namibia, Lebanon, Pacific Northwest
    Disc 4 - Russia, Los Angeles, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong
    Disc 5 - French Polynesia, Cleveland, Brazil, Argentina
    Disc 6 - Singapore, South Carolina, Berlin, Tuscany
    Disc 7 - Vancouver, New Orleans, London/Edinburgh, Greek Islands, Jamaica, Hawaii
    Disc 8 - New York, Laos, Tokyo, Uruguay, Colombia
    Disc 9 - Spain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Washington D.C., US Southwest

    Bonus features include: Promo trailers, a Behind the scenes featurette, Tony and friends: Chats with Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, and more.

    So you are getting the previously released Collections 2, 3, and 4 in new packaging. This does not include collection 1. Still, a great deal though.

    A solid collection of about 42 episodes, and some bonus features, for a decent price. The packaging is a little sparse however, they did not simply re-package the old collections- the nine discs come on a single spindle cheap plastic insert inside the box. The box itself is fine, nice pictures, but they cheaped out on the plastic insert holding the discs.

    So, this is a solid purchase for any No Reservations fan who hasn't purchased any of these DVD's before.

    Perhaps someday Travel channel will release the entire series on Blu-Ray. Now that, I'd pay a premium for.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Collections 2 to 4 repackaged June 5, 2012
    This collection is about 33 hours long, which contains the season 2-4 from 2007-2009. Seasons 1 (2005), 5 and 6 (2010-2011) are released on a separate collection, and season 7 (2012) will be released in August 2012.

    Without a doubt, this is the most entertaining food travel program blowing any other program out of competition. It includes a good balance between covering food and covering the sights of the country, but more on the food side. Each episode would roughly follow the same formula: 1- a traditional or national dish in a middle class setting, 2- eating in a budget restaurant or home meal, 3- Eating in a gourmet upscale restaurant with a known chef. The local guides that Anthony relies on are usually very knowledgeable.

    For the price of the package, you get 33 hours for only $20, that's roughly 100 minutes per $1. You can't get a better bargain than this! You can sample some episodes on other video sites then buy the collection from here. Highly recommended!

    9 DVDs for ~$20? You can't beat that! A good sampling of the show, with plenty of AB goodness. He makes me feel like a casual drinker... :-)

    Verified Purchase
    I have always loved watching No Reservations. I watched this entire collection as if there were no tomorrow. Now, as I rate this collection, I am waiting on collections 1,5,6, and 7 to arrive. It is totally worth it, if you're a fan on Anthony Bourdain. Hands down... Order this and the rest of the collections.

    Verified Purchase
    It is so good to learn and get inspired by such a wonderful series traveling to all parts and experiencing the way it should be, by their food and not in any 5 stars or white collar restaurants but traditional way.
    Way to go Anthony.....Seriously NO RESERVATIONS!!!!
