Fascinating and Addictive
10 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Whenever I buy DVDs I always pop them in the player to make sure they work and then shelve them. I popped L.W.R. into the player and I ended up watching three hours of the series before I realised the time.

This is truly compulsive viewing as, no doubt has been said earlier, it is not the standard celebs on a cushy ride under the guise of reality TV. There are times when there is genuine fear for their safety - and lives, and shows a real insight into the genuine personalities of Charlie and Ewan. Their is also a great sense of personal effort and struggle despite the well organised support crew who are, in the main, nowhere to be seen.

The one thing I felt could have improved this was more screen time, and so a better understanding of the role and personality of Claudio, their cameraman.

This is one of the few DVDs I own which gets a regular playing and it loses none of its appeal/humour/drama whatsoever.

Fascinating and Addictive.

10/10
