Anybody else catch The Feasty Boys Eat America on the Travel Channel (home of Samantha Brown)?

(Travel Channel = :rock: )

Decent show with a nice hook... "guy food." Easy to prepare, must contain one or more of "the four B's", lots of open-flame, etc.

Lots of potential, but the execution is lacking IMHO. Far, far too much schtick and not enough actual cooking.

For one thing, I was surprised to find out that it was only a half hour. Definitely needs to be a full hour, especially if you're going to leave in so much of the silliness/schtick.

I do enjoy the "here's the main ingredient, here's how it's produced, here's where it comes from, here's why this particular kind is the best, etc." segments. That's good stuff, and part of the reason the Travel Channel rocks.

But I thought that by the time they got through with all that, and the two guys making damn sure you know that they're wacky and fun-loving and male, the actual preparation of the dishes was so heavily edited-down for time that it's almost an afterthought.

I'm sure they'll make plenty of stuff that I'll want to try eventually, but I can't absorb the procedure in the 20 edited seconds they use to show the preparation. I came away disappointed, but I'll watch again.

Anybody else catch it?

I heard they tried to get Adam Horovitz to do a guest spot, but he couldn't because all the fly ladies were on his jammy.

Anthony Bourdain
New Orleans
TV-PG (DL)

New Orleans, a city known for its love of food, music and life, was forever changed by the storm of Hurricane Katrina; yet today, New Orleans is still a vibrant and spectacular town, and who better to explore the true impact of Katrina than Tony Bourdain?

He will be on with Tom Fitzmorris. He wanted to do holes in the walls, but Tom said that had already been done a million times. So they upscaled it. Lundi Gras night. :shrug:

No Reservations and Bizarre Foods are addictive.

Samantha Brown....can't tell if she is hot or really cute. Either way...I love her.

I haven't seen The Feasty Boys but I'll have to check it out.

Samantha Brown is awesome. Looks + cute sense of humor + seemingly always ready for a drink.

And Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations is one of the best shows on TV.

Even if sometimes he's an arrogant elitist know-it-all.

Of course, he is stuck out on some obscure cable channel.

I agree. In my world, there's no difference between "cute" and "hot." Samantha is plenty of both. :9:

And yeah, Bourdain's the kind of guy I wanna get sloshed with. Every day for a <S>week</S> month. (At <S>one</S> several of his venues, of course.)
