Alton Brown's Feasting on Waves Premieres Tonight

Alton Brown's latest 'Feasting' series, Feasting on Waves, premieres tonight at 10pm ET. This time around, the limited-series (it's only four episodes) focuses on the flavors and culinary roots of the Caribbean.


Feasting on Asphalt 1 & 2 originally aired much earlier in the summer. Think the move to late summer will help or hurt this season?

I think burying it on Sunday night at ten PM will hurt it more than the late summer run. I'll catch the 8PM rerun later in the week. Gotta get up for work on Monday.

Not as good as Feasting on Asphalt...no where near...boring!

I put it on the DVR. That slot worked for TNFNS and look at how pointless that was.

I still like Alton Brown and think he is one of the few good things they still have. I have barely made it through an episode of any of the other new shows.

Maybe it's in conjuction with some tourism board ... People go to the Islands during the winter & spring months after hurricane season ...

Book now for your Christmas/New Year's vacation ... LOL ;-)


I would've preferred another season of "Feasting on Asphalt" where he takes the northern route from say Maine to Washington for geoduck hunting and then up the Al-Can Hwy to Alaska for some moose burgers ...

I missed it. How was it?

If only everyone was as cool as Alton! I'm so jealous everytime I read about someone in Atlanta bumping into him at a local grocery store or restaurant. Can you imagine? Shivers!

Fascinating, especially the unplanned part going to St Barts and showing the Francophone side of the Caribbean instead of having it all be Anglophone islands. At least for me not boring, but then again I love shows like Anthony Bourdain No Reservations and Globe Trekker so to me at least this was in that kind of vein.

Actually I bet Alton would be great doing more of these shows overseas. Maybe a Feasting in Europe or Asia could be planned for the future.

I DVR'd it and the new episode of ICA. What a nice 2 hours I got. FOW is what I expected it to be. Laid back and interesting, with a touch of silliness.

If you don't like AB's style your not going to like this show. "No Reservations" packs more in an hour than FOW, but it just started reruns, so FOW works for me.

Then ICA, shades of the original show SNAILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLS. Never had one but both chefs made them look tasty.

Why does FN make poor Alton Brown do the shticky "travel" circuit as if they were afraid to put the man in the kitchen?

Journeying around and stuff is great for your "personalities" who can't cook (Guy Fieri)... but why waste the talents of someone as good as AB on Yet Another Travel Show?

As someone who actually watched the show, I really enjoyed it.

It combines two of my favorite things, travel and food.

FOA and FOW were both AB's brainchild, not FN's.

I LOVED feasting on asphalt...it showd Alton's loose, less nerdy side.

looked at it last night...and it was GREAT!!!....to BRYAN who said he would rather see feasting on a dumpster..well if that really is your pic ...you look like someone who would lack the intelligence to understand AB...
BRYAN = BIG ....WHITE...AND DUMB AS CAN BE!!!!!!!!!
P.S. heard the village ppl are taking auditions....!!
To FN addict....could you please filter the toolheads off of this thing.!

Bryan does sound like a toolhead doesn't he ?

Alton Brown is about the best thing left on FN. The guy is very enjoyable to watch. This guy could be a great charactor actor in Hollywood if he wanted yet has decided his fortune lies with the doof management of FN.Brave yet admirable.

I say more power to Alton. You deserve it.

I enjoyed it.

The Off-with-their-head types started hitting the keyboard before the show started.

I thought it was pretty boring. I like Anthony Bourdain much better.

Well Alec you and Mr or Ms Anonymous sounds like a couple of big bitter fat foodies.

Your both pretty sad.

Bryan just proved the Anonymous comments about him to be true.

It's "YOU'RE both pretty sad," not YOUR.

That's really funny.

I would actually watch Alton Brown do "Feasting on Dumpster" - I'd watch him do ANYTHING.

 
At 9/09/2008 7:09 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

As a fat foodie, I have to say that I had so little interest in FOW that I didn't even remember it was on. FOA was exactly my style. I will never go to those islands and have no interest in their cuisine, so this show is a "miss" for me.

As far as ICA, as soon as I saw the snails, I switched to Bravo.

I truly have learned a lot from AB. And enjoy his previous shows.

But this thing, in trashy, dirty places..is a BIG UGH!

FOA had to stop since they film it in March and April, and Alton said it is too cold to travel to many Us destinations at that time. (this was said at his Atlanta book signing). FOW Alton ...and i consider myself a huge AB fan..but, sadly,..he just seems less personable and..,well..just snobby lately.

I'm not so sure about this show, I've been a fan up to now, but, in the show I saw today, he wiped his spoon on the curtain after making tea, then, when that lovely lady was making lobster fricasse, he picked up the leg that had fallen on the floor and threw it in the pot she was cooking! If I were her I'd have kicked him out of my kitchen! Reality TV is one thing, if this is what Alton does when he's traveling that's really too bad!

The only thing i don't like about Feasting on Asfault is the shakey camera.I know its supposed to look like a documentary(i think it is)with Alton interacting with the camera crew etc...but i just find it hard to handel and it makes me dizzy.AB is still on my top 5 fav food network personalities and i do just love watching episodes of Good Eats on demand one in a while.

Carri, I guarantee that lady would have picked up the lobster leg and put it in the pot HERSELF if she had known that it had fallen. Do you really think they would have thrown it away?

I agree with Bryan...feasting on dumpster would work just as well on a network that's getting pretty annoying...they should have Barefoot Contessa come poking out of that dumpster! Ha!

Love Alton Brown and the show was really fun. Main problem is the air time, entirely too late at night. Why on earth can't it be on a little earlier or on the week days when there is very little worth watching besides repeat episodes of everything.

Alton's Feasting on Asphalt was a more interesting show, however. Like another poster above, they should map out and tour (bikes, motor home, etc.) all parts of the US. Alton's unique way of showcasing food and restaurants and cultures cannot be matched. Drop the new Neeley show and substitute these Alton Feasting shows. The only thing that makes Guy F. tolerable to my family is his newer show (diners, drive ins and dives). To me the draw of the show (3Ds)is being able to see food in all parts of the country, what people like, and the places they go to eat it. Alton's show could be somewhat similar to the 3D's, but strikingly different because of Alton's great food knowledge.

I recommend Feasting On Asphalt and perhaps each season could focus on a different state. It would be money better spent than the money being poured into Aida, Sunny, Aaron Jr., et al.

Finally, Alton Brown is venturing into uncharted territory- the Caribbean islands with its many flavors, pleasures and beauty. Caribbean cuisine has long been too ignored by the food network, and I would like to see more programs that included cuisine from the very diverse Caribbean. This show is what i have been waiting for, rather than the typical steak and potato joints or sensational programs on eating bugs. FOW is a step forward in the right direction. Go Alton!

I thoroughly enjoyed this show. It is the authentic Carribean. In the past 15 years My friends and i have travelled to many of the Caribbean island several times, with our parents and on our own now that we are older.
We all thought that this was a show that is needed, so many people travel to the islands and have no idea what they are going to get. The food is abolutely delicious, this show brought back great memories. i cant wait for the next show. Hope FN will take FOW to southern caribbean, perhaps Barbados and Trinidad.

lmao @ Bryan's "feasting on dumpster" and "big bitter fat foodies" aka BBFF....LOL! AB seems like a knowledgeable guy but he's boring. Like watching paint dry. I'm going to text my friend Michelle and tell her she's my new "bbff". LOL! That's the bomb.
