Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown is the kind of docuseries that puts others to absolute shame.

Bourdain uses the shared experience of dining to get to the heart of local culture and politics everywhere from Nashville, Tennessee to the war-torn Congo.
That said, Parts Unknown can be a little heavy sometimes. The show doesn’t shy away from showing the gore of butchering animals or the strife many experience all over the world. Additionally, knowing about Bourdain’s tragic passing in 2018 can add to the feelings of melancholy. For these reasons, this series is best viewed with a potent strain that will relax your body and free your mind. Rest in peace, Tony!
