Disappointing. I really like Zimmern and admire him, but standing in front of a green screen and reading the narration is really cheesy, and not in a good way. Did they think no one would notice?
The content is pleasant enough, but lacks the interaction of Zimmern with the locals and there is nothing "bizarre" in evidence here. Some of the comments by the locals are so inane (I like this, it is good.) that it's hard to believe that this is not a parody.
I also happen to listen to musical soundtracks and hearing Hungarian gypsy and Russian music as background on the Warsaw show just drives home the cheap production values here.
Come on, Andy, your fans really expect something better from you.
