No Reservations warning.

I'm addicted to Anthony Bourdain's show No Reservations , which airs on the Travel Channel. I love his sense of humor, the fact that he'll try anything, that he repeatedly gets drunk, and all the rest. It's pure TV fun and escapism. And, he's easy on the eyes [wink].

I have been watching the newest season and noticed that the obligatory warning screen is now taking on a life of its own. Well, first, let it be said that any food show that needs a warning screen should be watched, but this warning screen now responds to the topic of the show. With the New Orleans show, it was under water and slowly drowning; with the Romania show the letterforms were pierced by other letterforms a la Dracula and more...

I'll do some sleuthing later to the find the witty designer(s) of these essential but tedious moments of television viewing. More later.
