Always Interesting and Huell Howser is a crackup
20 January 2006 | by rowan_redSee all my reviews

Many Californians may be familiar with this public television program that helps us explore our own backyard. I have discovered many places that I would never have known, watching this show. I have also enjoyed seeing its take on many familiar spots. On one show, I was surprised to see my old school principal--still alive!--and being a tour guide for Howser, as he explored my home town.

As the other comment explained, Huell Howser has a talent for asking the most unfortunate questions at times! But this may be a part of the show's charm--the unexpected laughs that come from Howser's interviews, in which he often comes across as a big, lovable, but clumsy puppy.
