Anthony Bourdain's traveling road show, No Reservations, is a meandering and often exhaustingly self-referential hour of television. Not so for the final 4 minutes of last night's show, when, after wandering up and down the Hudson River, Bourdain ran into and dined with Bill Murray. Bill Murray (Groundhog Day, Lost In Translation, the upcoming Ghostbusters 3) could make a plate of bad fast food funny. As it was, he had some very good food and a view of the river in question to talk about. Also his notorious Stockholm golf cart joy ride and his wish, now, to joy ride in a “used PT boat.” Now there's a great idea for a Travel Channel show. Please?
