10/10 show... with 2/10 host
6 August 2018 | by ambernicole-20901See all my reviews

I absolutely love this show! It's so unique and informative to see other parts of the world in ways that they are not normally depicted. However, my one complaint is just David Farrier in general. I admire him for actually taking the initiative and going to all of these places, but upon getting there and hearing their customs/traditions, he always seems offended. He is never wanting to participate in these activities that are "norm" for these residents, and if someone says something that he doesn't agree with, he automatically is very rude and short with them. I just think a show that explores such different parts of the world would benefit from a more open-minded host.
