In that vein, the addition of Eve into the trip was a major contributor to that tension. I'm a woman, so rest assured this doesn't stem from a "boy's own" attitude. I just thought that Eve should not have inserted herself into the trip. She put Ewan in a very tough position, because you HAVE to support your wife publicly. That's just the way it works. So, she put Ewan in the position of having to broach the subject to a bunch of friends (especially Charley), who were hoping to have another adventurous /male-bonding kind of trip. If Eve wants to join Ewan on trip, she can do that anytime. She doesn't need to be a part of these major outings. I'm glad her screen time was rather abbreviated, and I hope she doesn't insist on being a part of Long Way Up, should they actually do that trip. I prefer the strictly male, fun-loving, boy's bonding kind of trip sans any wives.
As mentioned before, the beginning of trip was so rushed, and the guys so tired, that tensions and emotions bubbled over. That's understandable. Traveling of any kind can be tiring, but covering those kinds of miles on a motorcycle has to be just exhausting.Read more ›
However it does have its moments, the ruins in Libya are an amazing undiscovered wonder of the world and always the chance encounters unplanned but captured brilliantly by having those always present cameras. The series relaxes and improves as they travel further.
There is nothing unique in what they are doing, but their openness and willingness to explore and accept what they see and learn is refreshing as a reminder to those of us who have travelled in a similar way.
All in all worth buying and enjoyable, but the first series Wrong Way Round still ranks as one of the best motorcycle odyssey shows out there. Buy that as well then cancel a whole weekend because you'll not want to stop watching them. I hope they release some extras with this DVD not broadcast by the BBC here in the UK.
I gave Long Way Down 4 stars for 2 reasons -- it felt rushed and it only clocked in 6 episodes when Long Way Round had 10 episodes and wasn't as rushed. Secondly, I wasn't all that thrilled with Mrs. McGregor joining the boys in Malawi. Do not get me wrong, I love Ewan and his wife seems like such a doll! But for me, the Long Way series is about Ewan and Charley. I felt a little weird with the addition of Ewan's wife, even if it was only for 2 weeks. Despite some of my "issues" with the Long Way Down -- I do recommend it if you loved Long Way Round. It's a great addition to the Long Way series (let's hope they do a Long Way Up!).

Similar to their Long Way Round show.
Too much of them talking, too much complaining about how hard it is... on their fully sponsored brand new bikes with support crew. Read more
