Harvey Pekar’s appearance on No Reservations aired last night but we’re sure you can catch it in reruns.
It was very cool, because Pekar was on the show for about half of its one-hour slot. Plus, the show incorporated Pekar’s comic about it (art by Gary Dumm, I think). AND Bourdain showed Pekar mucho respect.
Just saw this tonight and it was very cool indeed. Bourdain can come off as something of a jerk sometimes (in a funny way), but he clearly enjoyed meeting Pekar and acted so.
I know this is (by now) an ancient post, but I finally just watched the episode on the DVR last night. I’m a die-hard Pekar fan and watch “No Reservations” regularly, so I was totally stoked to watch this.
Man, it was great. Harvey and Toby were just fantastic on the show and I loved that Bourdain seemed like a genuine fan. Wonderful episode.
Just wanted to say how much I loved it…
