Editorial Reviews

Famed NFL linebacker Dhani Jones will need more than shoulder pads where he’s going. He’ll be embarking on a global sports odyssey that will take him from Australia’s shores to the mountains of Switzerland! Being the top athlete he is, he throws himself into everything from Ireland’s hurling to Russia’s Sambo fighting. More than a football player, he’s also a true Renaissance man. He explores each country’s culture by getting to know the locals, taking in the sights and indulging in its cuisine. Experienced by Dhani Jones, this eye-opening, high-energy adventure reveals the world as you’ve never seen it before!

Great show. I really enjoy the production values, but most importantly you can really see that Dhani Jones absolutely loves what he is doing. Whether he is training in the local sport, eating the local cuisine, getting beat up, gasping for air cause he sucks at a sport, or visiting a landmark of cultural significance, he shows a sense of humor along with a but of competitive edge. I also like how he gets drunk in a couple of episodes. Plus as a man, I can take a few fashion cues from Dhani. This guy is pretty stylish. More so than Bourdain and Zimmeran. If Dhani needed to improve on something it would be his voice overs. They need to sound more natural and less scripted. But thats a nitpick. And at $19 for a whole season, you can't beat it. I wish Travel would put out blu rays as I know this show rocks in hidef!!! There's more countries and sports to tackle so I am definitely lookin forward to season 2. If you watch this I'm sure you'll agree.

Dhani Jones really makes this program. Great personality, sense of humor and a natural in front of the camera. Locations are interesting with a novel approach to learning about other locations from a sports angle. Dhani completely throws himself into each cultural experience. I especially got a kick out of the extra challenges he faced, good-naturedly, in the Cambodia episode. This man has a whole other career waiting for him once he leaves football. I predict we'll be seeing a lot more of him in the future.

Interesting locales, challenges, beautiful photography and a host who feels like a best friend--how can you go wrong? Highly recommended!!

This series has a compelling blend of sport and culture, with the sweat and smiles to match. Dhani does a yeoman's job in both exploring the places he visits, as well as competing at the local pastimes which can all be quite dangerous in themselves. Well done and highly recommended!

I saw these episodes when they premiered on the Travel Channel last Spring and it is such a smart, funny, energetic and educational show. Dhani is the perfect host to take you on these journeys as he gives you a revealing glimpse into each culture while he trains to compete in that particular countries native sport. He really inspires you to get out and travel and discover something new in each episode of the show and he is really funny and seems truly humbled by his experiences and the people he encounters at each turn.

Each episode has a different feel and mood and that is in large part due to the varied cultures and beliefs held by each country and how they regard their sport at the highest level and Dhani has an amazing respect and thirst for knowledge for each sport he tackles. I picked up on little things that I missed the first time I saw each episode after watching the DVDs and there are additional scenes as well. Great buy and highly recommend "Dhani Tackles the Globe" I am equally excited for the new season to air April 19th!

Before Dhani Tackles the Globe, I had NO IDEA who Dhani Jones was. Thank God for the Travel Channel! I watched this show during primetime, and having this on DVD was a must have. I also enjoyed watching it all again. Now if only Amazon would carry Season 2 of Dhani Tackles The Globe. It's awesome so see football player with a brain, a conscience and saying something other than reaping the bling bling. If you have not heard of Dhani Jones, get into him; he's an amazing human being.

This was a fantastic series, reminded me of MTV's Road Rules in its heyday. Never understood why it didn't go past two seasons. It was great to see another black male traveling the world & experiencing different cultures. Dhani is so cool & charismatic; he easily fit in no matter where he went.

I really enjoyed this series. Dhani has the "great host" quality to him. It is very easy for him to bring you into his journey. I thought that the show would be more about the sports than the culture of the country. The show has a very good balance of showing the sports, culture, food, and the people of each country Dhani visits. Don't just write this one off as another sports-junkie show. Check it out, you'll be surprised at what you find.
