The title is typical New York Post: rude, attention getting and just misleading enough to piss you off but not so off-topic that you don't feel slightly guilty for thinking that someone was trying to sucker you. The author of BORE-DAIN professes to be put-off by watching Anthony Bourdain eat eyeballs on the latest installment of "No Reservations" and appears to be non-plussed by all shows that feature people eating while ululating all over their seats. Count me in, mostly.
Unless the eating is being driven by a strong story line (e.g. Babette's Feast) I typically have zero interest in watching anyone eat; let alone Rachel Ray or Giadda De Laurentiis -neither of whom could tell a story from a storefront. And for the most part I don't get the mastication-porn craze that has taken hold of the nervous systems of Food TV programmers and audiences like so much chewable crack. But Bourdain usually does have a strong story line and a speaking style that is more than able to deliver it. He's as eloquent on camera as he is in print, and in his show does a much better job of conveying the humanity of the people he treats -and himself- than he is typically willing to do in type.
