Does he really think this represents America??

I was looking forward to this series however, it wasn't funny, wasn't informative and when he did show the wonderful side of our states he followed it up with a mocking slant. Really, he couldn't find anything good about Florida besides the Everglades? He totally focused on the city of Miami. Nothing about its ethnic diversity , nothing about its history. Nothing about the largest coral reef in America. He goes to Alabama and can only find the Prison and parole system the only thing that might interest people. Or the college football team? Really? Oh, wait, let's talk about the hunters in NY or the body farm? Is that really America? This is the worst documentary on America I have ever seen. No wonder people hate us. Don't come back! Or if you do don't look so hard to find subjects that demean us.
