Wonderful series, full of strong personalities, colorful venues, and daring escapes. Also a great character portrait of a man obsessed with his mission of getting there first.

Low-key, but surprisingly engaging. I suspect some strong cultural overlap between Canada and New Zealand is a contributing factor.

My husband and I thought this was an excellent 6 part presentation. We viewed it casually, over three days--as we did have other activities going. As well had discussions following each viewing. Worth the watch, and NO COMMERCIALS!

Somehow I could not quite get into movie the moment I realized it's a mini series. I'm not a big mini series fan so it takes a lot to please me here. Perhaps my rating is a little harsh, but it's just my opinion.

Execution is good in every way you look at this series....except it's a mini-series.
