It was interesting if you looked at it as a presentation "in the tradition
of" Twain, or if you were just interested in seeing a travel documentary.
It was boring in terms of looking for something that had very much to do
with Twain.  No new insights, no development of anything about the man.  A
few interesting quotes, but nothing new.
I don't know, maybe it got better.  I taped the whole show but lost interest
in watching after about thirty minutes.  No, maybe it was better in the
middle.  I came back and watched the last twenty minutes.
It was underwhelming.
