Entertaining and interesting.
17 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

I love Stephen fry anyway but seeing him trecking around America in his black cab and the peoples reactions to him (a well spoken dapper English gentleman) is funny and magical to watch, he does travel across all of the 50 states of America, its nice to see how beautiful America really is. He meets all kinds of people who have strange but interesting jobs as well as giving a small history lesson about each state delivered as only Stephen fry can, he also meets some celebrities too on his journey, Sting and Morgan Freeman to name a couple, my only complaint is that they could have made more it feels like he hasn't had enough time to show off all off the states and the cities within them he visits but still 10/10 :)
