BLD serves a lighter fare for a traveling food show and it's certainly not at the level of Parts unknown.
It's hit or miss depending on the guest. The morocco episode with Crissy teigen was very cringeworthy. The show wastes a bit of time with too much rambling and prepared opening scenes.
I enjoyed the Cambodia with Kate McKinnon episode the most. Kate McKinnon could carry her own travel show and hopefully she comes back for another episode.
