    To Gawd man! Have you watched ANY one of these shows in which the judge WEREN'T hypocrites. Get real. They're ALL phoney, choreographed...yet entertaining. I've watched all of them on youtube, and they all border on the ridiculous. Ever watch that arrogant idiot Gordon Ramsay? It's called...show-business...hello.

    it is what it is. entertainment. if youre okay with that then more power to you, enjoy his shows . It kind of bothers me when people confuse bourdain with someone who may actually be an important culinary figure though. which he isnt by a longshot.

    It IS entertainment and I don't actually think there are all that many who think he is an important culinary figure. No one with much gray matter at least.

    So, I'm being a dick for calling you and your opinion out?

    Really?
    Just about everything you said was "quite personal". Go back and read it.
    We're all entitled to our opinions, but I'm not a believer that the forums are a place to "call people out" by mocking them.
    Thanks dude.

    Yep watch a lot of them. Honestly to many of them. The arrogant idiot calls himself a cook, same as Bordain. I did think the same thing at the time. Still doesn't mean I don't dislike him. Like I said earlier I don't mind someone taking the money, but when you go out of your way to criticize a certain show, then end up on that show the next year, ya... kinda the meaning of hypocrite.

    Have any of you watched Bourdain's show- Parts Unknown?
    I just watched the Myanmar epidode, followed by the L.A. one. The L.A. one is hilarious. Especially the meatball tacos at Sizzler.
    Not a show just about food.
