With the love of his writing and No Reservations in mind, Mr. Bourdain’s post today about the upcoming Rome episode is outstanding. The episode could end up being a flop, but reading about it was entertainment on its own. The care for detail, nerdy film references, the willingness to take risks even while riding high in critical acclaim, all rendered expertly in words that were a joy to read.
But I have a feeling the episode won’t be a flop. I’m quite looking forward to it.
