The passionate and curious Josh Gates makes for a great companion as he explores off-the-grid locales with his Travel Channel audience. Gates’ unique blend of humor and his pedagogical delivery of historical evidence, facts and myths is easily taken in by even the least-traveled of armchair explorers. Moreover, his degrees in archaeology and drama add authority to his engaging commentary. Adventure-filled episodes take viewers on a quest to understand the life of the real Robin Hood, to search for the lost valley of Shangri-La, and to follow Columbus on his journey on the high seas, Gates’ exuberance in exploring the world’s fascinating places is contagious—and it’s delightful to ride along with him.
