Not bad, but not Palin's best
on February 1, 2009
Hemingway Adventure: Quite different from the other Palin series I've seen (80 Days, Full Circle, Himalaya). Less of the point-to-point urgency in this one, and as a result it's more relaxed; and he goofs around more. There's some pretty funny stuff here. I just got through reading Hemingway's "Sun Also Rises" so it was good timing and interesting to see some of the sights and so forth. Overall pretty good, but some parts I found rather dull. Much prefer Full Circle and some of the others.
Great Railway Journeys: Mostly this is for train fiends. I watched a bit of it but then bailed.
