SOMEBODY FEED PHIL
January 12, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

SERIES PREMIERE: A sort of sequel to Phil Rosenthal’s PBS travel and food-sampling series, I’ll Have What Phil’s Having, this new Netflix series provides the same tasty and friendly stew with all the same loving ingredients as his previous show. The executive producer of Everybody Loves Raymond knows how to be, and find, funny, and wherever he goes, he finds warm meals, and even warmer people. If you need another series to make you feel good and calm, and have run out of episodes of The Great British Baking Show, try this. Netflix drops the entire Season 1 today, starting with a trip to Bangkok, Thailand, where Rosenthal clumsily descends into a rickety boat and eagerly partakes in a round of “water shopping” – cruising down a floating bazaar as merchants cook for you along the way. Then he hits dry land, and keeps shopping, and eating. As with his previous series, Somebody Feed Phil is all about finding connections between different people and cultures, and treats among different types of foods. And he finds them everywhere.
