Anyone watching this?  The host is going to weird, creepy, or somewhat dangerous tourist destinations.  In the first episode, he went on a Narco Tour and met up with Pablo Escobar's former hitman, then went to Mexico to reenact the experience of sneaking across the US border, complete with actors pretending to be cartel, border guards, etc.

I added it to my queue a few days ago, but haven't started it yet

I've been cherry picking random episodes - so far I watched the one about the Stans, the first one in the US, and the Japan one.

I like the concept and, generally, the show. I think it's a bit weird how the host tends to talk down a lot of the people he encounters who are into some of the weird stuff, but he's clearly interested and participating, too. But I'll probably watch them all before it's said and done.
