Michael Palin's New Europe

  • http://www.hulu.com/michael-palins-new-europe

    Another major travel show available on Hulu. This seven episode mini series is pretty decent although Palin zips from location to location taking no time to get to know anyplace along the way. You get odd, rapid vignettes as he flies from country to country. The bits that he does in each place are interesting and the cinematography is good but there just isn't enough depth. This one is from 2007 when being a tourist in Eastern Europe was still novel. Already most of the places that he visits are standard tourist stops. But this mini series and associated book were part of what encouraged people to venture into Eastern Europe for travel.
