People keep mentioning how Scott and Justin have such great chemistry on screen as best friends, but I seriously can't understand how we're watching the same show. Scott's comments are engaging while Justin's random commentary is juvenile and annoying. If you're going to get drunk, why does that have to be featured in each episode? While both seem like frat boys, if you can get past this, the redeeming parts of this show are the stunning visuals by camera man Andre, and the fact that it moves fast and shows each country in a down-to-earth, personal way. Still my favorite travel show as it doesn't give you a history lecture or make you spend 30 minutes watching someone eat cuisine you can't appreciate. It's colorful, exciting and eye opening for the viewer. This is more a result of good editing that good characters however.
