This fun and colorful host-centered reality series showcases the world's most interesting phenomena. Some destinations are quite well-known, but Dr. Chris manages to find interesting but lesser-known attractions to highlight. However, the real fun comes when he explores more remote locations, many of which are located in his home country of Australia.

There are some teachable moments, including trivia quizzes offered during each episode. But The Open Road is mostly about highlighting the environmental wonders and interesting people and customs of the places visited. It's certainly family-friendly, and may even get you thinking about your next vacation.
