this is jumping the shark- I usually don't mid her - I am watching as interested in Greece and nearly yelled at the tv when she said "we know so little about greece, I wish we still learned greek and latin in schools" -speak for yourself woman, don't assume the rest of us are the same - there is no need to dumb it down.

I do love that you can post <name, for example>... and I complete the sentence without thinking about it.

I would cry if I had to listen to Nana Mouskouri sing so I can see where she was coming from there.

It is very 'gosh, poor people, fabulous' isn't it?

Haven't watched it - sounds just dreadful.

Since when is she an expert on Greece? I'd rather have travel programmes presented by people who know something of the country and its history, rather than all-purpose supposedly 'national treasure' personalities like JL. Dumbed down indeed.
