  1. The most underrated show on Monday nights is: Robson Green’s Weekend Escapes. Such a gem of a show. While I don’t know most of the UK celebrities, I can appreciate the need for a break and enjoy the activities and stunning scenery!

    1. It’s a bit hit and miss. Some segments and guests are fun and interesting, some are nothing more than crude plugs for local tourism businesses.
