.The most interesting and informative documentary of all time......
22 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rarely does a documentary show something you have never seen before. Almost every episode of "Cities of the Underworld" reveals underground wonders I was unaware existed. Season one was tremendous, covering cities of both the New and Old World. Each episode is set up with a brief history of the region, and the guides are interesting, and informative. As for the hosts, they are not abrasive as some others have claimed, perhaps a little over enthusiastic, but still totally acceptable. I like the way Eric Geller and Don Wildman ask to go beyond the obvious in their explorations. Without question this is the best documentary I have ever seen, and I hope there are many more seasons to come. - MERK
