TMP Television Edition: Globetrotting (Scripted, Non-reality, Non-travel, Non-docu series)

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
It’s the last Thursday of the month, that means today we’re talking about TV shows instead of films! The topic, globetrotting, was really difficult for me. Here you have some TV shows that give me serious wanderlust!

#1 The Crown

It’s been a while since I’ve been to the UK, but watching The Crown always makes me want to go back. There are so many beautiful landscapes to see, Scotland, Wales, etc. In addition we visit many of GB’s over-sea territories, which are nothing short of stunning.

#2 Narcos

I’ve never been to South or Central America but Narcos really makes me want to go!

#3 The Lava Field

I’m sorry I couldn’t find an English trailer for this show but it takes us all the way to Iceland. How beautiful is that country?!

What’s your favorite globetrotting TV show? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Interesting choices! I LOVE the UK too!! I’ve been a few times and dream of going back someday when it feels safe to fly again.

    I don’t have Netflix so The Crown and Narcos are out of reach for me. If it were more stable politically I’d love to go to South America as well.

    The Crown is one that I hope to see one of these days. Those crazy royals do carry on!

    I’ve met someone from Iceland which is realistically probably as close as I’m ever going to get to going there but if the opportunity ever presented itself I wouldn’t say no.

    I’m not much of a regular TV watch nowadays but fortunately globetrotting shows were in vogue back in the late 60’s to early 70’s and I was a devout fan of them so this week was easier than it might have been. They fed my wanderlust before I was old enough to go anywhere, and usually had phenomenal guest stars as well!

    It Takes a Thief (1968-1970)-Master cat burglar Alexander Mundy (Robert Wagner) is granted his release from prison on the proviso that he work with the US government using his particular skills to obtain sensitive info that they need to keep the world safe. Under the direction of agent Noah Bain (Malachi Thorne) who explains “Look Al, I’m not asking you to spy, I’m just asking you to steal!” Mundy jetted around the world to exotic locales on various jobs sometimes accompanied by his elegant thief of a father Alistair (Fred Astaire).

    The Persuaders! (1971-1972)-After coming to blows in a bar fight fantastically rich globetrotting playboys English Lord Brett Sinclair (Roger Moore) and American Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) are prevailed upon by the presiding judge to team up to use their distinctive expertise to solve crimes that have baffled the police. At first reluctant they soon become fast friends and adroit crime stoppers in far-flung spots around the world. The series only lasted a year because Moore departed to become the new James Bond.

    Run for Your Life (1965-1968)-When attorney Paul Bryan (Ben Gazzara) is told by his doctor he has a terminal disease and will die within nine to eighteen months he decides he has a whole lot of livin’ to do and hits the road. Week after week Paul heads to a new place and new adventures as a man constantly on the move.

  2. I have not seen any of these but would love to see The Crown. I wonder what the Queen thinks of this show? Love hearing German in tv shows, not sure why but I do especially shows like Bonanza, Friends, etc…
