Half way through Long Way Down and I think this is the most interesting one of the three. There’s natural tension between the crew, incredibly interesting places… Happy and frightning stories, amazing wildlife. And I think it shows what we can loose in humanity and our ecosystem.

@hutaffe We are watching it too! Just finished Long Way Round last week and well into Down this week... I wasn't familiar with the first 2 series before watching Long Way Up, so I think later I want to go back and rewatch Long Way Up as well now that I know the people and what they've been through.

@manton exactly my thoughts. I want to watch Up again too actually knowing their history. Now that I see Down I think they could have done Up differently. I'm at episode 8 now and I have tears in my eyes…

@hutaffe I’ve just finished Long Way Up and was deciding if I should try the other two. Good to know that Long Way Down is particularly good.

@mroutley they're all really really good. Long Way Round is a little more adventurous making me want to leave home immediately, while Long Way Down is more „interesting“ I think. I think they're both worthwile.

@hutaffe I binged watch the first two while making my way throught the Long Way Up. The kindness and generosity demonstrated by the people along the way is something I'll always reflect on. All in all, I gained a truer sense that we are all a part of one race, the human race.

@hutaffe I watched all 3 and plan on going back for a rewatch. Really enjoyed each one in a different way.

I though the final episode of Long Way Up was rushed and skipped over a lot.

@hawaiiboy yeah... the end was too quick. Too much emphasis on the mechanics in the beginning compared to the urgency with which they ran through Mexico.

@MikeJones that’s true. Also something I always see when traveling. People are just welcoming and nice everywhere. The more remote, the more welcoming and helpful...
