Outstanding!
27 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only downside is it will make you want to get on a motorcycle and see the world.

:)

Except maybe not so much of it in one trip.

And maybe stay ... Ah, well, watch the series, you'll understand...

Ewan impressed us as being a pretty down-to-earth superstar - even from the get go. And if you have family, the ending will make you cry with tears of joy.

We couldn't stop watching, we had to watch all 7 episodes almost straight through. Even my 4 year old daughter found most of it interesting...
