Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This entertaining series features novice climbers with some celebrity fame facing their fears and fighting the elements to reach a common goal. It shows how they cope with the day-to-day challenges that come with a climb of this magnitude. The climbers also use individual cameras to discuss their reasons for being there, as well as their thoughts, hopes, and fears. Throughout it all, they also work hard to support each other.

Jukka Hilden, now older and somewhat more mature since his days on The Dudesons television series, makes safety a priority, and struggles through the climb like everyone else. But, along with Steve-O, he manages the occasional dumb stunt, including laughing over bottles filled with urine and drinking from a toilet. Nonetheless, Ultimate Expedition is a positive series that shows people working hard to challenge themselves in a positive way.
