Food Porn

How do you know when something has Jumped the Shark? You see some no-talent, coke-snorting, faux-cool TV chef using it on the travel channel. Oh yes, dear readers. Anthony Bourdain’s show, No Reservations, will air a show tonight titled Food Porn. Shouldn’t I get paid for that title or something?

It’s not even a real show. It’ a clip show. (Clip shows are where they paste together pieces of a show’s “greatest moments” previously aired on TV.)Yeah, it’s one giant self-important, masturbatory hour of Anthony Bourdain eating. Hairy palms are the least he deserves.

Sniff. I’ll still use Food Porn as a category when I write about food.  But it will never be the same now that Bourdain’s had his greasy, Ramones-playing, bong-grasping, nicotine-stained fingers all over it.

And yes, I watch the show. I much enjoy seeing Bourdain uncomfortable. Occasionally, the show delivers. Looks like I’ll be skipping tonight’s show ’cause I don’t think I’ll get to see him in an awkward situation tonight. I think a rerun of Jon and Kate Plus 8  is on. That’s better anyway.

    I’ve never watched him but I saw my first episode of Hell’s Kitchen last week. I may have a crush on the devil. ;)

    It was disappointing. Alpha male eating…it’s a great recipe for a television show, but ‘Food Porn’ was boring.
