    As far as Iran goes, I dont think any American believes that it is the Iranian citizens that we have an issue with.

    Their hospitality and friendliness doesn't negate the rhetoric and the Nuclear aspirations of the Theocrats who've vowed to drive Israel into the Sea.

    It doesn't negate the fact that Iran is a huge State sponsor of Terrorism.

    I'm sure Bourdain didn't touch on those issues.
    Actually he did, to the extent the IRanian militias and govt allowed him to.

    Not surprising, but also highly informative.

    Beer drinking, pizza eating, American muscle car loving, family oriented people just trying to live their lives to the best of their abilities.

    Also - NOT hating America, although not forgetting that America supported Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war which included Iraq using some pretty hideous weapons on the Iranians.

    I especially liked the one scene where Anthony was having a HUGE formal lunch with a family and the father specifically stated "we are not the axis of evil".



    So I'm wondering what your thoughts are regarding the show.
    I love his shows! He is one of a few inspirations that led me late in life to work and live abroad. As for this particular show, I have not yet seen it, but would like to do so.
