My review of "Lonely Planet"
5 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

My mother watches this show every week. I didn't really like it at first, but after a while it grew on me. For a long time I thought Ian Wright was the sole host, because he was in all the episodes I saw. Only now do I see other hosts, who aren't as enjoyable as Ian (who is very funny & handsome). Despite the fact that you can't get me to sit through an entire episode, I still feel inspired to visit some of the places I see. For instance, Janine Shapiro in the South-Western American desert. That looked beautiful. Especially the festivals they have there! I never knew how interesting the rest of America could be. This is a show I recommend to all. I've heard the folks over in the U.K. might be putting out some new episodes. I hope they do!

3 out of 5 stars.
