The first two seasons were made only for Finnish audience and so main language that was used was Finnish. On the third season Finnish was replaced with English as the show was sold to several other countries. See more »
This just has to be the best travelling document ever. Tunna and Riku are really getting out from the ratrace and setting themselves free. Although they make travelling look a bit too easy, cheap and careless, they show what travelling is all about. Not the crowded holiday spots, but the countries as they really are. All this and great hosting guarantee a 5 star experience. If you liked this, you'll like Madventures 2 even more.
I'm not sure if this has been translated to other languages, but I hope the soon-to-come DVD will have foreign subtitles too. At least every Finn should watch it. Some people may be offended by the socialist attitude of Rantala, or the coarse language they sometime use, or the disgusting meals in mad cook sections, but even that can't steal the value from this show.
