I saw the one on Papua New Guinea and I found him a bit irritating.
He kept saying things like "wow, this is awesome" rather than offering any kind of insight.
It was a bit like watching an excited kid go exploring - sort of endearing but I would have liked it to be a bit more in-depth.
i agree sponge, it does have its faults. it's not just the lack of analysis, but the non-inclusion of women/children...there's a lot of blokey matey stuff, but hardly anything about the women and what they think although this may be because of his sex he's procluded from any meaningful sort of conversation with them. there was a small (sad) glimpse in last night's - when a woman and baby (unrelated) died and the level of public display of grief was very unsettling, bruce himself said he felt he was intruding but they asked him to stay. i suppose i find him engaging but know his faults. sigh...
