The Wonder List

Following the success of Parts Unknown, CNN recently released their new travel series The Wonder List. They send Bill Weir on the road in an attempt to label him as the new Anthony Bourdain, but hey – that’s not gonna happen. This guy comes out quite different. But even though he’s nothing like the original, it’s still quite interesting to follow his travels.

I’ve seen every episode of Parts Unknown so far. All 36 of them. And I must say it gets even better for each season. The seasoned voice of Bourdain has matured from the food porn mayhem of No Reservations, as well as the sleepy Layover series. Season 5 of Parts Unknown is currently filming and will be out this spring. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, check out the pilot episode of The Wonder List.
