State Hopping
26 September 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Immensely entertaining six-part trip through all the U.S. states hosted with likable wit by Stephen Fry.

Maybe it's all slightly too arbitrarily episodic and missing some edginess, but as an easy-going travelogue featuring colorful and interesting snippets of what the United States are all about, of nature and culture, of people and their stories, this rates as a well-made, joyfully British journey without pretensions towards epic grandeur.

Just follow your jocular tour guide Mr. Fry and you're in safe hands for sure.
