A Bourdain Good Time
I first fell in love with Anthony (Tony) Bourdain when I watched his travel/food show, No Reservations, on the Travel Channel several years ago. I can't remember which country he was in during that particular episode, but I was immediately sucked into the show. Tony has an acerbic wit (putting it mildly), and he's not afraid to tell it exactly as he sees it. At the time I began watching, he smoked like a chimney, drank like a fish, and generally relished his bad boy persona. He was grumpy in the Dr. House (TV show) sense of things. Something of a misanthrope with a heart of gold. Though I'm tempted to believe that he doesn't hate everyone...just the stupid people.
