Tivo Bourdain in Beirut!
That may be some of the best television I have seen in awhile. I do realize that summer TV is bad, so the bar is low, but this really is good. This very spunky Chef goes around the world in search of food and booze and was eagerly awaiting the Beirut experience only to get caught in a war. It's not surprising that the bombs took the sarcasm right out of this guy, replacing it palpable fear. He hated the experience but for more reasons than you might expect. This dude has a soft side that his previous fun and drunk episodes could not have exposed. I could go on and on, but that is just delaying my readers from hitting the record button. This is the Travel Channel's version of "must-see TV".
