  8. Excellent DVD's... even my wife enjoyed watching it. Found it amusing that its like 3 DVDs full of Europe and Russia etc.... then like 1 episode for all of the US and Canada lol.

    Watched a bit of Race to Dakar but i can't stand Boorman....

  10. Sverre was getting quite annoyed with him by the end too..."he's just so...gay". :LOL:

    It's a fantastic show and book. I read the book last year and only just finished watching the series a couple of weeks ago.

    Ewan is fantastic...Boorman is annoying, but as a whole it's very well done. I love towards the end when you can tell they just wanna get home, and Ewan's all "mummmm! I'm on the telly! Mum! I'm on the telly!" cracked me up.

    And him cracking up at Evie when they meet up just before they get to the end and she's saying how much she hates his beard! So many funny moments throughout it all :)

    Sorry if I spoiled anything :p

  12. Sounds like i might have to purchase the DVD series. I've read the book and really enjoyed it, such a feat for a motorbike to make it over all that terain

  14. Great series - got it last year and watched it with mrs.mad and we both loved it.

    Favorite bit is Charlie using his stomach to demonstrate european road surfaces and russian road surfaces (you gotta see it). :p

    Still want to see the Paris Dakar one even if Boorman is 'gay'.

    Any other good road trip series out there?

    Cheers :cool:

  18. Thanks for the weblink - long way down looks greta, perhaps we should organise a screening once it hits the shelves.

    I thought that maybe it was going to be Alaska to the southern tip of South America or something, but this trip sounds just as good.

    Come on September - lucky its my birthday month - now I know what to ask Mrs. Mad for :p

  19. I can't wait for the Long Way Down.

    My daughter is totally hooked on Long Way Round - watched it every morning before school for the last 2 months!!! I bought her Race to Dakar, hoping for a change, but she just doesn't like that one as much.

    My favourite scene - the massage they got in Kazakhstan. Hilarious.
