Michael's mistake???? by peripatetically on 5 November 2008 11:49am
I personally think Michael should not have revealed that he found any of the crew, and in particular, which one that he did find. Not knowing what was ahead or what to expect was one of the major reasons his first trip, and all those other treks, was so good. His decision to reveal so much before its release was a big mistake in my eyes. Sorry, Michael.

I have to agree with you. It's one thing we were all (or most of us anyway!) wondering about and now it will be an anti-climax.

It will still be interesting to watch though.

I do not know why this is just about the Dhow crew. I would like him to retrace most of the journey and not just focus on one aspect. How about meeting Basil and his family again, or where he started and ended the journey?

The bookies, the venice barge, the neptune garnet, america etc?

I assumed he was doing most of that too??

It seems that the programme is only a one-hour special about finding the crew of the dhow.

I doubt very much that he would want to do the whole journey again.

Ah well, I bet we all watch it anyway!

I will watch, but I hate knowing the ending. Same as with a good book. Just hope it makes it to the USA for a change.

I don't think it was a mistake to know who he met. Just glad he was able to reunite with some of the people he set out to visit. Most of the crew were related to the captain so its probable he will be able to say what happened to everyone featured in the dhow episode.

In that interview a couple of weeks ago - IMHO - I don't really believe that he gave that much away at all -
Perhaps - what he disclosed was just a red herring - or maybe not -
However - I agree that he shouldn't have revealed anything at all -
All the same - it will make for a very interesting Christmas special -

I'm not holding my breath for anything Michael does to be released on telly here after the New Europe fiasco. Still steaming about that.
