Passable TV Fluff, not much else.
20 August 2016 | by (Halifax, NS) – See all my reviews

When this was first on TV, I watched it faithfully. Mostly (90%) for Andre's Filming, the dude has a great eye. Scott, is okay as a host. Friendly to the folks he meets, and seems interested in the world he sees. Justin, is a goff, plan and simple. Also it seems he wants to joke around, and drink. Holy frack, does he drink water? In certain place he must, because his gut must be wrecked. I love junk food and drink, but I have limits. He is a force of.. I am not really sure. They do seem douchey, which is sad, because that is not the Canadian way. Also, taking a year off to travel? That is insane unless you have a HUGE bankroll. The show is hilarious when they visit North Korea. I suggest watch the VICE special on Youtube, to see a true mirror experience. What I suggest is they should redo the show a few years later, and show what Justin, Scott, and Andre have gotten from it.
