I love this show and highly recommend it to pretty much everyone who has the travelling bug. I would have given it 5 stars based on the merits of the show alone...EXCEPT saying that this is "uncut" is misleading. In fact, the DVD producers will be "double-dipping" later in 2006.

It is important to note that they released a longer special edition of this show on DVD in the UK last week. So now there are actually 10 extended episodes of this show that are available as a three disc set everywhere else in the world except North America at this point in time.

The region one disc being released in North America in December 2005 only has 7 episodes (on two discs). They are planning to release this 10 episode version later in 2006.

If this doesn't faze you, and you need to get this NOW then I still think you'll enjoy the heck out of the 7 episode version.

However, if you can hold out for the 10 episode version (or buy the PAL version from Amazon UK), then I'd strongly advise you to do that instead.

Consider this fair warning!

I got tired of waiting for the long version so I went searching. Here's what I found out.. You can order the 10 episode 3-disk DVD from Amazon Canada. Your dollar is worth more and that compensates for the shipping. The original 7 episodes are enhanced with additional footage as well so it's like being on the wonderful journey with Ewan and Charlie for the first time. Enjoy.

Ewan and Charlie are my heros. Watched it when it aired on Bravo. Absolutely loved it. Missed a couple episodes. Considered buying the UK version, but elected to wait. Finally got the US copy. FINALLY got to see the segments I missed. I still love the movie myself, but unfortunately can't really watch it with my kids because of the slightly-more-than-occasional use of the F-word. The naked butts are tolerable, but the F-word screws it up for family viewing. Wish I could have bought a censored version. Never really thought much of it when I saw it on TV. I'm still giving it 5-Stars because it still a great story and video. Just not for kids.

Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman ride motorcycles from London to New York the "Long Way Round:" east across the European and Asian continents, crossing into Alaska, through Canada and on to New York. The trip is most adventurous across the Asian continent when Ewan and Charlie enter Kazakhstan, and continue along treacherous routes through Mongolia and eastern Russia. As a consequence, five episodes of this seven-episode version are dedicated to the toughest part of this journey--leaving Alaska, Canada and the United States to be covered in the final chapter. That's Ok however, as Ewan and Charlie treat us to extraordinary views of country and people seldom seen by Westerners.

Kazakhstan is a bit humorous as the pair is greeted with local police escorts and just about every town official along the route. Mongolia is fascinating as the duo encounter people living in the most barren places of the world. The route gets very tough in areas and will satisfy adventurers' and motorcyclists' appetites for challenging situations as Ewan and Charlie negotiate rivers, bogs and very rough roads on their heavily-laden motorcycles. The route becomes almost impossible in far eastern Russia when they ride the final leg to Magadan on the "Road of Bones;" a road manually constructed by prisoners. Interrupted by rivers swollen from winter run-off, the team resorts to assistance from hardy Russian truckers who travel the route--sort of a reality "Wages of Fear (1955 movie)."

Motorcyclists will enjoy this show as Ewan and Charlie each ride an R 1150 GS Adventure, BMW's famous large displacement dual-sport motorcycle. It's an interesting study to watch their preparations for the trip and the numerous problems--mechanical and environmental--they solve to get to New York.

As a novice motorcycle rider married to a life-long one, I know many of the ups and downs of travelling by motorcycle. This video shows it all - the joys, the trials, and let-downs. There are places where Ewan states his misgivings about situations they get into that echo my own when I've been in situations where I felt my skills weren't adequate. They both summarize it well at the end of the day when the challenges have been met and they are off the bikes until tomorrow. I doubt if many folks will travel like these two did, but this video serves to inspire people who wish to take a journey of a lifetime on a motorcycle.

Cool video. I never would have gone that far on a motorcycle!

Did you read the book? Ok, if you can, read the book first, as it has the complete story and not just the snippets that make these two look a little like spoiled brats. The truth is, that the book will give the honest and real reasons and motivations and struggles behind this trip. Let me tell you that if that where any one of us we would have done the same thing; If our face was symmetrically balanced, we just stared in Star Wars, and we could call friends in the movie industry to help us of course. Nothing wrong with having friends.

A lot of folks have said some negative things about these two actors over preparing, complaining, and having things that most folks would not. First thing I learned when planning my trip around the world was, that when I reach “my comfort level” then I should take off and do my trip. Well, that comfort level is different for every single person. If you are ‘Rambo’ and want to tackle paperwork and fees at each border as you get there, by all means have at it. If you take five years to prepare paperwork, visas, finances, and have your wife follow you in a van, then you have found what makes you happy and you do your trip.

The point is, very few people go around the world. These two wanted to do it but had to figure out a way to finance the trip and so the idea of a TV show was born, as an afterthought. They spent most of the trip trying to get away from the support crew to enjoy the ride, getting a sociology lesson in person, and just growing up, growing smarter and growing character.

If you read the book, you finally get to see some of what they so vividly wrote about. It’s not a Hollywood movie; it’s just a simple account of some of what went on. Need to read the book to understand.
