I don't think Michael Palin has anything against anybody, but he does like to take the path less travelled when it comes to his series. Anyone can go to the USA. Hell, I've been through the USA this year, and I'm English and not very well off. How many of us get the chance to go to the places that Michael visits? How many of us would be brave enough?

I know what America looks like, and so do most other people through films and television. I would rather see a programme about a place that I haven't seen before. It's just more interesting.

yes i understand the fact that most people from the uk have been to the usa, but how many people venture away from the areas of disneyland and manhatten,etc. what i meen is finding the true u.s. like the history of the war of independance or the civil war, because its very hard to find anything about this side of the usa in the uk.we seem able to be fine with the history of the rest of the world but the usa, mmmmm, i thought we where good mates with them
