Parts Unknown is a look into the food and the culture and the people around the world. It's available on Netflix for the foreseeable future.

**Update: Netflix has announced that it'll extend the run of Parts Unknown "for months to come."

Anthony Bourdain is dead at 61, victim of an apparent suicide. It feels trite to do so, but it's worth mentioning that his latest series, Parts Unknown on CNN, is available on Netflix, but only for another week. It was to leaving the streaming service on June 16, but Netflix chose to extend the run.

You come for the food, and for a look into a country — dude was traveled in so many senses of the word — that maybe you'd never experienced in any way before.

But like so many of Bourdain's endeavors — including his previous series, as well as the books that initially gave him fame — you end up staying for the people.

(A couple of high points: The opener of Season 2 in Jerusalem, and a meal in Vietnam with President Obama in Season 4.)

And so it's worth a mention that Netflix subscribers can still catch Seasons 1-8 of Parts Unknown for the next week. Maybe it'll inspire one of you to cook something or to go somewhere or to meet someone.
