5.0 out of 5 stars Sunshine in a Bottle April 5, 2009

She's back! The lovable, witty, and energetic Samantha Brown returns in a fun, adventurous trek around the world in "Season one: Passport to Great Weekends."

Brown's personality is nothing if not lovely and zany and out of control. Her zest for life and that smile! are what drive this collection of trips around the globe to the tip of the peak. In season one, the world's most favorite travel guide host invites us to beautiful locales that one cannot pass up--and you do not even have to leave your sofa. But these videos would not be as fun as they are without experiencing at least one of the cities recommended here.

Brown takes us to such places like Orlando, Florida, where the heat is not the only thing that sizzles in the air. Did you see that wine taster?

In San Francisco, Brown helps the viewer find inexpensive ways to enjoy the City by the Bay, and one of the most beautiful cities in the country.

In New Hampshire, Samantha returns home to dine, laugh, and have fun with family. She even goes to Maine! All in one trip!

Las Vegas, watch out! We see a different side of Ms. Brown here than we have in the past. Let's just say she will have you regaling with laughter when she serves drinks to the locals--the Samantha Brown way!

Whatever your penchant for travel, even in today's economic upheaval, Samantha Brown shows us ways in which we can get away, if only for the weekend, inexpensively, and live on the edge with a big, open smile.

Now let's hope season two of this fantastic series finds its way to DVD soon. And where in the world are the "Passport to Latin America" and "Great Hotels" DVD series? More adventures are on the way!

2.0 out of 5 stars Childish Sense of Humor April 28, 2012
I have a big sense of humor but I can't enjoy her humor this time. this DVD, she has a sense of humor like a 6 year old boy.
Like she said in Austin that she has bats coming out of her butt and she stood in a way that it did look like that! This does not belong in a travel show.
Sure, humor is great, but this was very childish. I'll stick to Rick Steves thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! April 6, 2010

Samantha Brown is fabulous and perfect. She always knows how to make you laugh. I can not wait for the rest of her stuff to come out on DVD. I have One iPod already full of her and I had to buy another for music! She is definitely a must watch! One of the best if not the best host you could ever have on a show.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like this September 11, 2010
Verified Purchase
this is a good video. some of the formats used by travel channel on the videos is limited on its usability. I am glad to see this on DVD. I did look for that when I purchased the DVD. this show some interesting perspectives on some interesting places. Sam usualy has a good show and is a good narator. I like a lot of Travel channel videos, but some are availible only in a format that is limited in its usability. again I am glad to see the DVD format here. video on demand does not lend itself to good compatibility on different players sometimes I fail to understand what the recording industry is thinking in this country. why not allow recording to DVD and put the royalty tax on the Recording Discs. that is another can of worms. this video is very good and provides entertaining video viewing. again I am glad it is on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Places January 30, 2014

I really like to watch Sam Brown and get an idea of the places she visits. As a travel agent I keep an arsenal of videos of different places to show clients. These videos are great but the average traveler should just use them to look an area. Sam gets special priviledges that the regular traveler doesn't get so if you are looking at these to do things in the area, just keep in mind you don't have a camera following you and most of her adventures are set up with that in mind.
