Made me feel as if I was traveling with them.
2 January 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

First of all I have to say that I missed the first few episodes, I'm not sure how their journey starts but I still got hooked quite fast, despite it being broadcasted at times as late as 0:30 or 1:30 in the UK. They could easily get rid of shows like Big Brother and all those "soaps" and change them for more cultural, light hearted, and undoubtedly much more INTERESTING things like By Any Means, I'm sure some people would appreciate it.

And now I will comment on the program.

The first thing I remember thinking when I first tuned in was something like "Man, Charley Boorman is on drugs 24/7!", I think that's why I continued watching it for a while until I really started enjoying it.

I like the way you see them travel, for me it makes it more real than people just popping up at places, I was also amazed at how Charley seemed to "enjoy" every single bit of the journey (like...the very long journeys, the things that almost went wrong, or even the most dirty poor and unhygienic locations), and how he seemed to get along with almost everyone he met, despite being a bit random at times, he comes across as a friendly and simple fellow with a big appetite for adventure.

I'll say, despite not having gone to all the coolest places and done all the coolest stuff they could of done, that "Ireland to Sidney By Any Means" is the best traveling program I have seen, and It's how I'd like all of them to be, not like when you see this 60 something year old guy go somewhere and start talking with someone about the history of a place for about 10 minutes and then take a "Business Class" plane to his next location, these guys go there as normal people, they have fun, and then go somewhere else to keep having fun, with no "glittery" additions. Just the real thing! It's made me think about doing something like that someday.

I'd recommend it to anyone.
