I never get tired of this show
2 October 2005 | by alecton99See all my reviews

I've been watching this show since I was 16 years old, I'm 22 now. I don't actually live in California, but the show is so well done that the wide angles, the correct iris apertures, even the audio really makes you feel like you're on a school trip everyday going to a different place.

Huell Howser has really made his homework on informing the world about the interesting overlooked places in California.

What I like most about the show, is that Huell acts as if he was a typical tourist, like most of us, and asks the exact questions we would ask, I always like the modern and practical perspective he gives to the show. That element of surprise he gives to the places he visits really gives a punch to the real amazement I would have if I'd be visiting there.

Huell Howser!! You Rock!!!!!!!
