One of my favorite show on television is the erudite, evocative, mouth-watering, multi-dimensional Emmy-award winning CNN series, Parts Unknown, hosted by Anthony Bourdain. Tonight, the series begins it's second season of focusing on Shanghai, a place that I long to visit because of the staggering amount of very tall skyscrapers.
This show is about food, but it transform each week to an amazing educational and informative sociology and anthropological documentary on cultures throughout the world.

It's difficult to watch the show because makes my mouth water. And it makes me fill smarter for having watched it. I am so amazed at the ability of a show which is essentially for "foodies" that is so talented it transcends to a remarkable social commentary and travelogue.
More, Mr. Bourdain!!!!
