Well, O.K…a lot over the top.
But, when I get an offer for Special Show Swag (try saying that 10 times, fast) from Tony’s peeps, I’m not above employing what my understanding is of how Blogosphere SEO theoretically works.
If you missed the season premiere episode last week, not only did you miss seeing what Bourdain does with a mountain of cocaine, you have not yet seen The New Tony.
First off, the show seems to be characterizing Bourdain as somewhat schizophrenic (this whole Good Tony vs. Bad Tony shtick), but starting tonight, Tony promises to “dial back on the adjectives on the show.”
We will see.
I must admit, after he tells every chef, every street food vendor, every bartender,
the affect becomes somewhat depleted.
Tonight’s show promises to be a Real Turkey, but in this case, it is not necessarily a bad thing.
It’s actually the whole thing.
While cocaine was part of the story of last week’s show, leave it to Bourdain to suffer the consequences of other mind-altering recreational pharmaceuticals or beverages.
This time, apparently he overachieves his goal of having an enjoyable flight en route to his latest show venue.
If you watch the video clip, below, you will learn the identity of, arguably, the most meritorious, yet underrated local travel guide you could hope to encounter when visiting an unfamiliar locale.
As to the semi-disgusting title of the post, anyone who has spent at least 10 minutes watching Bourdain eat and drink his way around the planet will confirm, Tony really likes anything that looks like it once was warm-blooded, had four legs (phew!) and has seen the business side of a barbeque, in other words, MEAT, especially if it comes on a stick or…
…is between warm and tender buns.
See, now doesn’t that clean up this Show Teaser?!?
Just watch the damn show tonight and you’ll figure it out.
(Tonight meaning Monday, January 18th, or whenever you happen to TiVo, DVR, PVR, YouTube, or Hulu it.)
