    Funny, fearless, down to earth and informative, Monaghan makes a great host and guide and gives us a new respect and appreciation for nature's wild things--from a very safe distance.

    The moments in which Monaghan interacts with people who don't quite understand him are among the most charming.

    Travel shows have been done and done again, and it's hard to find one that breaks new ground. The most important element is usually not the scenery but the host, and BBC America found a great one in the British actor Dominic Monaghan.

    Although the nature documentary elements are the focus, the added color of travel show features as well, as the general feeling of spontaneity (however carefully cultivated) adds a peculiar appeal to the package.

    Dominic is a great host, and this show is amazing as well. Definitely some people are afraid of certain animals and this show can certainly help people be a bit more braver! Full Review »
