The Bourdain Backlash Begins

grantland-on-the-taste-150.jpgNoel Murray over at the AV Club on Anthony Bourdain and the Taste: "[H]e mostly seems disengaged, depressed, and at times numbed by the wine he swills during mentoring sessions with his 'team.' It's as though he's fully aware that his very presence on this show has shredded any future credibility when he calls a TV chef a sellout." Murray still has high hopes for Bourdain's new show on CNN: "I've got my fingers crossed for Parts Unknown, because I don't want this to become Bourdain's fate: yet another empty windbag, reliably gobbling up airtime."
