Ya know, anyone with their own show looks or acts like a douchebag at times....almost without exception. Any one of you (or I) would be far worse than he is on the teevee. That shit's way harder than it looks. He knows food and he knows a lot of the cultural history behind the food, so as a food/travel show it's as good as anyone's. His attitude, or whatever you want to call it, is pretty similar to mine, so that part's very enjoyable to me, and pretty rare on the tube. The Mark Beef cooking show would be entertaining in a sad way for an episode or two (like that retard cable access cooking show), but no way would I look forward to seasons worth of episodes....because as far as I can tell, Bourdain is far less of a douchebag than Beef.
