Bad show
25 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

This show has irritating hosts (especially Justine Shapiro) who get in the way rather than letting a country reveal itself. You don't need to over talk, carry on, shriek at the camera, have shots of you running along in a swimsuit...

It doesn't stand out in any way, or do anything better or different to the hundreds of travel shows out there. The editing is pretty poor at time, or the show focuses on an uninteresting person in the country for too long , which makes it boring to watch.

I think travel shows may be better when they predominantly use voiceovers as it takes a camera hog out of the way so you can see a country in all its beauty, its faults etc.
