- Long Way Down Series review by PB
I really enjoyed Long Way Round and had also watched this when it first came out. However, after watching the first four episodes again on Disc 1 I got fed up with the guys going on and on about how terrible it was. It was mainly the miles per day that seemed to be bothering them but they appeared to be far from blameless for that. I really like the guys when they are more positive and I will watch the new show going up the Americas, but for this one I'm watching no more, and it's a NO from me!!!
