  The Chatter Box : The Series
Artfully Aging & Teaching by edwarc on 30 June 2003 3:20am
Michael Palin is a model for most of us to follow: when something stops working, find something else. Michael was great in the Brit comedies, but I think he has found a real niche in the travelogues. I have watched 80 days in entirety at least 3 times, and spottily more. Pole to pole and Sahara yes, but not Sahara in entirety yet. Point being, I can watch anyone of these segments alone and be both entertained and learn something. My favorite happens to be the 80 days series, but the point is that whichever travel series it is, it leads the cable-ready into new experiences, with practical observations. If this is not a primo example of a redefined career at middle age, and a successful one, I am lost. Thank you Michael Palin.

I love how he's still traveling, it's nice to watch his series, it's not boring and it's fun and I still learn more about different countries and their past everytime I watch Full Circle or Pole to Pole over and over again. I can't wait for the next one :D!
