The show seems to fall short. The viewer is never shown the darker side of going on a bender in a foreign country. Sure we're introduced to all kinds of exotic drinks and interesting places, but something is missing. You never see Jack Maxwell stiff as a board drunk.
Maybe what the show needs is a nice trip to a Mexican border town. He should visit the soft underbelly of the seedy side of some cuidad where he gets so sloppy that he can't tell whether or not the fat hookers he's buying rounds for are men or women. Maybe follow that up with a fight with the locals, a tune up by a pair of local Policia, and a weekend in a Mexican jail. Now that would have the makings for an entertaining travel TV show.
