Stephen Fry in America (Disc 1 of 2) back to product details

Most enjoyable if fleeting journey

Stephen Fry is such an engaging actor and personality that it's not surprising that his trip across America is a fun ride. But as an American myself who thinks myself pretty knowledgeable I still found plenty of little surprises and gems on this trip. It's a pretty short attention show, he doesn't spend much time in each state, and a few states barely get the time of day (but really, what is there to say about Delaware?) I actually enjoyed the 2nd disc more, when he travels through Rocky Mtns and Great Plains, etc, he gets deeper at some things (Global warming, conservation, truck drivers, diets, Native American politics) that are quite compelling, while the first part feels a bit lighter. All in all, while it will leave you wanting more, it's definitely a journey worth taking.
