The Texas episode was a complete disappointment
How can you not even mention the City of Fort Worth (Cowtown) while showing the highlights of Texas? Also no mention of Lubbock, Amarillo and other great cities in the state. There are so many great things they could have shown, but they dwell on a lot of negatives. I do understand that the negatives are also a part of the history of the state and should be mentioned, but I was very disappointed after watching what I thought was a great episode on Alaska (Fire and Ice).
Not enough landscape
Utah has 5 national parks but a huge amount of time is dedicated to stories about Mormans and Polygamists. A detailed story in the Colorado episode focuses on Ted Haggerd. Very disappointing. With all the gorgeous landscapes, it’s unfortunate that they chose to highlight such small negative stories. When they focus the landscapes, however, it is beautiful. We are really disappointed that we bought the whole season. National Geographic is so much better.
More than just a view
While I truly enjoy this show I was somewhat disappointed when they covered my great of Michigan. They didn't truly grab the essence of what a Michigander enjoys about their state. I'm sure manay others can relate. I certianly hope they are able to revisite all the states and take a deeper dive. Michigan is barely difined by Detroit but that was their main focus.
