A ragtag group of modern day explorers set off to be the 'first' to navigate the Blue Nile from Lake Tana in Ethiopia to the Mediterranean Sea.
Let's be clear. Any claim of firsts rings hollow. It's silly to say it out loud in the first place. It does not detract from how beautiful these places look. I can even accept the narration as long as I ignore the ridiculous claims of hardship and being great explorers. It's not true. At best, this is a simple travel show. If they treated it as such, this would be more satisfying. Also at 48 minutes, it feels like a highlight reel. The individual members get an introduction but non of them get much screen time. I do wish to have seen it on the big screen. It simply looks beautifully epic.
