Big in New Zealand, maybe
I was hoping to learn something about Japan and I'm a sucker for a travel series, but Japan takes a back seat to the presenter and his zany, nerdy, staged adventures from samurai boot camp to mascot cosplay. Every cliche is trotted out here - robot hotels, geisha, bullet trains, eating blowfish, etc. - but that's OK, give me more of that and less of the host hamming it up. A must for fans of Rhys Darby (he must be big in New Zealand) but I could only take two episodes, and I fast forwarded through most of the second one.
