Decent.
22 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

For a reality program, this one is quite decent. It is filmed as it should be in a documentary format. Todd Carmichael is already known as a world traveler and videographer, so it's a good fit. The locations are exotic and the dangers, perhaps more so outside of the production, do have their dangers. I think my problem is that each episode's set-up seems awfully scripted and many of the scenes of danger at times feel set up or reenacted. Perhaps I am too cynical of this kind of programming, but Todd doesn't really help as he is constantly playing up the scenario so much that he appears to have a line of b.s. to sell. That being said, as a travelogue there is a organic chemistry that makes the show work.
