I completely agree with Barb that the series had too much Ustinov, and not
enough Twain for my taste.  I find that Ustinov ranges from rather charming
to utterly annoying, and notwithstanding his impressive ability to mimic
sounds of man and nature, I spend most of the time worrying that he's going
to break a hip.

It is interesting to see the locales of which Twain wrote, so I'll watch the
remainder of the series.  But I'll do so inspite of, not because of, Sir
Peter.  How I wish that Michael Palin had taken on this project!
