Boisterous celebrity foodie Anthony Bourdain is leaving his long-time post at Travel Channel for a new show on CNN, where he will essentially be doing the exact same thing weighing in on dining and culture from around the world.

HEh, we watched that last night! All the “Vice” episodes are on Netflix streaming. Our baby gets excited when she hears the theme music.
Never watch his show before CNN.
I know who you mean. Nobody’s ever going to accuse Anthony Bourdain of being insincerely chirpy ;-).
If I had unlimited money and time and wasnt so afraid to be killed or getting food poisoning or some sort of exotic disease in some very remote location with little or no available modern medical care, I have to admit that this would be a great way to live. Id love to travel the world, go off the beaten track, get to know the people and experience their culture and their cuisine as long as I could come back home in one piece with all my intestines in tack. : )
Andrew Zimmerman does sort of the same sort of thing but his focus seems to be more of finding the most grossest and most disgusting foods of the country or area, not necessarily the best food like Bourdain does.
I'm put off by the lack of civilized bathroom facilities in most of the world. I enjoy the travel programs, books, and magazines in my secure and sanitary bubble!
Unfortunately Ive experience some very, very uncivilized and vile bathroom facilities right here in the US in my travels that unless they involve a Coke bottle, a pit in the ground and a square of dirty of newspaper, probably rival anything youd find in the third world. In fact squatting over a pit in the ground, or peeing into a Coke bottle and using newspaper for tissue would probably be preferable to some of public restrooms Ive encountered. Most recently my niece and I went to a local McDonalds here in PA with her young kids and took one of her small children into the restroom and immediately walked out, preferring to have her daughter pee in the small potty my niece kept in their minivan for long trips. It was gross to such an extreme that I wanted to throw up and I have a pretty strong constitution. We wiped her kid and me with sanitary wipes just for having gone into that filthy bathroom.
In the episode in which Nugent appeared, there’s a bartender at a poolside bar. That guy was someone I knew from when I lived in Miami. I’m not sure how he got the role since he wasn’t an “actor” but he had a line or two in the episode.
Friend of someone on the set, maybe. My parents used to see Navy people they knew in the background of “Magnum, P.I.” episodes.
