    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.

    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!

    A great product... so much stuff... highly recommended... if you enjoy watching shows about traveling and food, this is the dvd collection for you. Only downside, no closed captioning... but that is no problem.

    I've had my ups and downs with Anthony Bourdain, particularly of late. It's ironic that Bourdain often professes love for bands that never quite made it huge. It's a fan's conundrum: there's a part of you that wants the world to know how great a band is, but there's also a part of you that wants to keep things on a more intimate level, as if you are part of a secret society. It's why the term "sell out" is thrown around with such derision from longtime fans who can't cope with the sheeple ravenously devouring their private playthings. Even after the crowd moves on to the next shiny new object, things are never quite the same again. I feel this way about one Anthony Bourdain.

    Currently hosting some rancid ABC cooking show, having left smaller Travel Channel for the grown-ups table at CNN, marrying a younger woman who'd not have the slightest interest in him prior to his stardom, and becoming an aging dad and parody of himself have all added up to a disturbing trend. Even Bourdain admits he's a sell-out, but doesn't seem to mind. He may be able to look himself in the mirror each day or laugh all the way to the bank, but I have no interest in watching his shtick anymore.

    All that said, these clips reminds me of why I fell so hard for a show that spoke to me and encapsulated all that is awesome, joyous, and fascinating about this world. The best of his work was when he connected to the locals on common ground and avoided the predictable celebrity chef schmoozing that is endemic to foodie television. Sadly, it seems like that's all he does now. These are indeed the dark days of the Bourdain Franchise. I'm waiting for him to break down and start endorsing cutlery or some kitchen ware collection on QVC.

    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!!!!

    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.
