Fun travel show, but heavy drinking is glorified.

The template for Three Sheets has been developed over many other series, most especially on the Travel Channel. Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations is the gold standard. A lively, humorous, curious host arrives in an unexplored locale and proceeds to learn what he can about the local food and drink from area residents.

Three Sheets focuses almost entirely on alcoholic drinks, although there is some attention paid to great local meals as well. Host Zane Lamprey is easy to watch and does a good job of interacting with the locals at each location. When it's not simply Lamprey experiencing the city, there are some comedy bits that feel forced as they attempt to integrate interesting background information in a clever way with attempts at humorous graphics and voiceover. With a more straightforward approach and a stronger reliance on Lamprey's natural style, the show could be even more entertaining. As it stands, it's still a pretty diverting half hour, and a natural for foodies and travel buffs -- though the emphasis on alcohol makes it a poor fit for kids.
