Not bad, but not Palin's best

"Hemingway Adventure: Quite different from the other Palin series I've seen (80 Days, Full Circle, Himalaya). Less of the point-to-point urgency in this one, and as a result it's more relaxed; and he goofs around more. There's some pretty funny stuff here. I just got through reading Hemingway's "Sun Also Rises" so it was good timing and interesting to see some of the sights and so forth. Overall pretty good, but some parts I found rather dull. Much prefer Full Circle and some of the others.
Great Railway Journeys: Mostly this is for train fiends. I watched a bit of it but then bailed."
Hemmingway/Great Railway Adventures

"Interesting semi-biography on Hemmingway; an up-close view of places where he wrote and what he wrote about. Lots of laughs in between.
Older (25 years ago?) look at Ireland and great treat for train buffs."

"Both the Hemingway and Train Spotter docs are wonderful. I saw both of these on PBS when they were first aired, and I am very happy that they are finally getting a DVD release. The Train Spotter documentary was available earlier on a very hard to find VHS.
Get them while they last!"
