I just want to say that I love love love this show. One reviewer writes how the show has shifted from representing "unfair tourists" to "glorifying drug-runners". I believe there is still a good mix of episodes in which tourists are unfairly locked up and also in which undoubtedly, poor decision makers are also punished (though NOT fairly). Personally, I like these episodes that divulge the insides of the "poor decision-makers''' experiences. That's the lure of the program. If someone is not looking for this type of entertainment, fair enough. But I find it incredibly fascinating and have also been introduced to new books (from Chris Chance) and new research opportunities from these individuals. To each his own. I love the show and find it compelling, exciting and well, ....addicting!
