No Passport Required

Anyone else watching this new show with Marcus Samuelsson exploring the food of various US cities? I’ve seen the first two and have enjoyed them. And please, I don’t want to compare it to Tony Bourdain’s shows - two very different styles.

I have watched the first two episodes using the PBS app. I like the show so far but I wish the host would ask more questions about the food while conveying life in that specific neighborhood.

It’s an unfortunate title. Too resonant of No Reservations.

This is on regular PBS, not Create? I’ve not seen it. Time to call my local station.

I downloaded the PBS app and was able to watch the show via iPad so I could catch it on my own schedule.

Cool :sunglasses:I don’t believe it is scheduled here.
I didn’t know there was a PBS app. Thanks! :slight_smile:

You can also watch from the web:

The first six (I think) episodes are available on PBS. I watched the first two. Just not my thing. The host is pretentious, talks down to his audience, and clearly has a political agenda. The first episode was off-putting. The second one was a real trial that I sat through to see if there was any value to me at all.

I won’t watch any more. It’s just too painful for too little value. Guy Fieri for public television - all show and no meat.

YMMV.

How did I miss this? Within the last year my city got split between the PBS SF Bay area and the PBS Sacto valley. I LOVED it when we got both. Very different sensibilities.

I haven’t watched this yet, but mad props to Marcus who I think has made some awkward and difficult choices.

This show returns Monday 20th with LA and Houston on the 27th. I don’t know how I have missed this show, it looks great.

But Comcast charges for prior episodes. :hushed:

Ironically…I’m watching on PBS Passport

…I think. I haven’t watched the season yet, but used PBS in 2019.

here’s the thread. I don’t know how to link this.
