    Bourdain can cook and he can host a travel show. But what distinguishes him from others who do this (say, Andrew Zimmern), is that he can really WRITE.

    If you appreciate travel, food, cultures in the hands of a wry essayist, you will enjoy "No Reservations". Bourdain is unique in bringing a level of honesty and appreciation to what he sees without being cliched or phony. He could give you a tour of your backyard and make it seem fresh and interesting and amusing, maybe even heart-warming. He mixes brutal honesty with kindness, and, from someone who initially seems like such a curmudgeon, a surprising enjoyment of people and appreciation for their lives and the foods they create. He also somehow incorporates all this with a droll sarcasm that is, perplexingly, not at others' expense.

    He is the antithesis of the ugly American. (And could anyone not be grateful Bourdain was the one "representing" in the Namibia scene of eating roasted warthog anus--sand and hair and all--in the bush? And being appreciative and gracious through it all? In the words of Kipling, "You're a better man than I, Gunga Din.")

    But, of course, this isn't the BOOK of No Reservations.It's the DVD. So this isn't just about all the good writing. Fortunately, we also have the fantastic film crew putting together what are, in my opinion, the best travel documentaries on television. The combination of exceptional camera work and editing, plus Bourdain as writer and host--well, there's a reason they've won Emmys. Plus, I really love this--they don't just "get the formula and follow it every week". Stylistically it always hangs together--but you never know exactly what to expect.

    To quote U2, Hamptons NY doesn't seem to understand the magic that is watching Anthony Bourdain. Why one would buy a four DVD set without obviously watching the show first is beyond me. Anthony IS all those things, although a bit more mellow is recent years since the birth of his daughter and his second marriage. And that is what sets this show apart (and head and shoulders above) most other travel shows. Our family has been lucky enough in recent years to travel to several major US cities, as well as India, Singapore, and Ireland. What was one of the highlights of Singapore? The Tian Tian chicken stall, of course. I could bore you with an entire list of places we have visited and at which we have eaten after being exposed to them on "No Reservations". All I can say is, "Thanks, Anthony". And by the way, we loved you in Saint Louis! I have preordered 5, part 2, and waiting for the next one. My DVR is virtually full, thanks to you.

    Stop for a second... $80, that's a bit much. You can purchase a recently released 9 disc collection (by Travel Channel) elsewhere on Amazon for around $20-$25. It has EXACTLY the same episode content and some bonus stuff (behind the scenes, promotional trailers, and something called Tony and Friends, Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent and more... For 25% of the price listed here, in a single package. I guess there might be some more bonus on these "individual" collections, but are they worth the $60 price difference? I guess if you're a purist... Just thought youd like to know. Love these episodes, but times are tough all over.

    Look around for the 9 disc set, save your cash to pay your cable bill... I'm holding my recently arrived copy in my hands as I post this.

    Anthony Bourdain is an auther and a chef. So when he narrates his episodes, he does it as if he was writting a book. He goes to some amazing places that I would never imagine and eats the local food and drinks the local drink. No matter what.
