  • Everything I like about Tony.

    9.5
    This episode has everything I like about Tony and his series. Interesting, exotic food and a sense of humor are readily apparent throughout this episode.



    I have never been a huge fan of Indian cuisine, but that's probably because I've only experienced the Americanized version. All of the street food that Tony eats looks and sounds delicious. Tony does an excellent job of describing the ingredients, flavors and textures of various complex dishes.



    However, what I like most about this episode is that Tony's snarky, witty sense of humor abounds. The episode is littered with clever one liners. Tony's parody of Bolly/Hollywood features is brilliant. As he plays a movie mogul, he manages to skewer action movies, stars and Hollywood in general.



    Overall: This episode is great. Tony shows respect (as always) for the culture he has immersed himself in, and he makes it relevant to me in my living room.moreless
