Condescending whiner
pissed off | san jose, ca, USA | 01/09/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I love the globe Trekker series in general, but Justine Shapiro gets on my nerves. In most shows she only gives a couple of condescding smirks or comments during the program, usually beind the back of someone she just spoke with, but in this particular program, she seems to be irritated the whole time. It's as if she was forced to take this assignment and would rather be somewhere else....anywhere else! She was very condescending toward almost everyone, and just a pain in the ass for most of the show.

The worst part was when she stayed in a hostel in New Mexico. It looked like a nice place. It had dormitory rooms. It was $15 a night. She was so irate that she had to do a chore in the morning. She complained and whined and went on and on to the manager of the hostal. It was embarrassing. I find it hard to believe she doesn't realize that maid service in the united states is not cheap and if they did have to hire maids, the price of the hostal would have to greatly increase. That is why all the hostals i have been to in the US required me to do a chore in the morning. It's called "budget travel". She should have gone and stayed at the hilton, or even a Motel 6 so she wouldn't have been so bothered. Is Ms Shapiro ignorant or just hard headed?

she whined or made her silly condescending smirks throughout the program and didnt seem to connect with any of the people she was interviewing. Then, at the end of the show, she gives a little speech about what a great time she had and how wonderful the people were......yadayadayada......-I didnt buy it.

I give this program a 2.5 stars because it had some good photography, but Ms Shapiro really brought this one down. I think if it were any of the other GT hosts, this would have been a 4 or 5 star show."
