What's the story?

NO LIMITS, a spin-off of Animal Planet's Off the Hook: Extreme Catches, stars champion wrestler "Showtime" Eric Young as he travels around the United States to try a range of hair-raising activities designed to test his fears. Young meets folks who are experts at things like downhill snow kayaking at top speeds in Colorado, to high-lining (walking on a one inch band of webbing) across 400 ft. deep canyons in the Utah desert. After learning about what they do, and getting a little training, Young attempts to complete the adrenaline-fueled challenges on his own. In between scenes, trivia questions about various activities are posed to audiences.

Is it any good?

No Limits showcases the wide variety of bold, daring, and just plan crazy ways people across the country are satisfying their need for adrenaline rushes. Adding interest to the show are the different locations Young travels to, which range from Nevada to Puerto Rico, and feature an array of interesting natural landscapes and habitats. 

As a way of underscoring Young's love for doing things without boundaries, there are only limited warnings offered about what not to try, and the dangers that come with doing so. Nonetheless, adventure-seeking folks might be inspired by what they see here, while other viewers will simply be happy to sit back and watch others push past their comfort zones.
