Palin in a relaxed mode,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Michael Palin's New Europe : Complete BBC Series [DVD] (DVD)
This is Palin on the road in a more relaxed mode; not the stunt travel of Around the World and Pole to Pole, which undoubtedly pushed our peripatetic narrator to his limits. This is a leisurely amble through eastern Europe and parts of the old Soviet Union. Meeting interesting people, learning about the cultures, seeing the sights, occasionally doing silly Palinesque things. What's sad about it is how terribly dated Palin's questions about the New Europe's glowing future now sound--with the Eurozone disintegrating before our eyes. Still, it's an entertaining travelogue that Palin's fans will not want to miss.
