    I actually love to watch his shows. He is so cool!
    I can’t wait to see how he will get terrified of Prague!

    Tanya! Thank you so much for telling us about this. I love Tony Bourdain. Here’s a blog post I wrote about him before I left for Prague:

    How come you can’t leave comments on my blog? Have you tried the OpenID feature or one of the others? I would love to have Tanya comments…small Bohemian steps till world domination!

    The document was quit good. The problem was, I had no beer in my refrigerator, it felt like a torture to watch it.
    The other problem was, there were too many complaints about communism and Soviet occupation… I know very well how the communism could destroy human lives and how Soviet occupation made many Czechs into real butt-kissers (these people are the most complaining, the same as Nazi collaborants became big communists after the war).
    It is undeniable that Czech nation suffered under communism and Soviet occupation. But neither communism or Soviet occupation could destroy Czech spirit of “average” man and taste for a good food. Even in the darkest ages of communism, I could buy beer, sausage, goulash, etc…
    This food were and are “killers” (literally) but I loved it. Even the famous “koleno” (pig knee) was possible to get. As it was presented in the document, the American viewer will feel so terribly sorry about us..(maybe they will hand me some warm clothes) . How could we survive to drink only water and have ice to desert?
    I was not going hungry under communism, and if I was lucky, after standing 6 hours in line I could get even watermelons .. 😉 Even if I was barred from doing PhD there, I still could enjoy “smazeny syr” (toasted cheese) ;). Majority of members of current Czech government are hardcore communists by birth and still, they act as big anticommunist and while they or their parents were buying western products in special shops (only for high ranked communists) during communism, they still are complaining how they have suffered.
    The King is dead. Long live the King.

    I thought the show was FANTASTIC! I loved Tony’s show before he went to Prague and now that he has done a show on a place I’ve been to and loved so much, I’m even more impressed. I respected his two choices of commentators: David Cerny (who unfortunately used his precious minutes to feed his male ego rather than brag about his homeland) and Evan Rail (who writes on the Czech Republic for the New York Times). I especially enjoyed seeing the village pig butchering and would be sad if Czechs gave that up to comply with EU regs. I agree with Vlastimil that there was too much blaming of the Commies for what ails Czech food culture. You have an open slate now! I even wrote a blog post aobut it before the show entitled “Who Will be the Czech Jamie Oliver?” http://empty-nest-expat.blogspot.com/2010/02/who-will-be-czech-jamie-oliver.html

    Oh, and one other thing that impressed me about Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations” show on Prague. He went out to SAPA, a place most Czech people don’t even know about or appreciate, and ate some authentic Vietnamese food. It was like he was honoring C.R.’s immigrants. I liked that.

  • Vlastimil February 4, 2010, 4:54 pm

    Karen, don’t get me wrong. I think it was one of the best documentary about Prague I have ever seen…

  • Vlastimil February 4, 2010, 5:00 pm

    Karen, I would like to work for a US company in Prague
    receiving US salary.. 😉 Do you know of any such company? I would love to spend couple of years over there..

  • Tanja February 4, 2010, 5:00 pm

    Interesting reviews! I happened to miss the show :(((( Hopefully I can catch up with it on his website!

  • Karen February 5, 2010, 7:30 am

    Vlastimil, as soon as you find that U.S. Company for making a U.S. salary in Prague, let me know. I’m with you!

  • Vlastimil February 5, 2010, 8:16 am
