Jack Maxwell sets out on a fun-filled mission to find the country's best bars. He's got insider tips on what to drink, eat and do at every bar he visits and knows what makes America's top watering holes worth bellying up to.
I'm giving this show a solid 8 out of 10. Overall, it's a nice travel show and you actually get to learn a lot about different places and cultures - and especially how booze is intertwined in those cultures! Just from a travel standpoint - even if you're not an alcoholic, it's a good show.
I like the host but he's probably the reason I didn't give the show a full 10 out of 10. He's a bit too over-the-top "American! Ya!". Like when he's at a table with people in Peru who barely speak English and he's throwing around all this American slang like they're supposed to understand it. Don't know why but that just frustrated me. He could also be a bit more expressive of his gratitude when some of these people go through all their efforts to make him a intricate cocktail or whatever.. (thinking of the Japan episode where this guy makes him this extravagant cocktail in a diamond-shaped glass that he carved first out of purified ice and all he says is "now that's a cocktail"). He's also just looking to get wasted all the time. Again a bit unappreciative to the people he's visiting when he just wants to 'down' their labored or aged alcohol they've opened specially for him.
My complaints a bit petty, but overall I really like the show and will continue to watch!
