Fascinating..., 30 June 2003
Author: bigsleepj from Captain Nemo's Submarine

The first episode was tremendously boring. It's enough to make you fall asleep. Not so with the others. The deeper Palin goes into the Sahara, the more fascinating it gets.

Keep with it! It's a monstrously well-made series. And Micheal Palin is an added bonus.

The episode where he goes to Tunisia, Liberia and Algeria is the best one of all. He shows where he (and the Monty Python-gang) shot "Monty Python: Life of Brian" which is not really my favorite Python Movie, but seeing where they shot it is an education.

Enjoy the series!
