Off the Map

With the new year comes a new crop of television shows. Remember when that used to only happen in September and October?

One of the heavily promoted shows is Off the Map. It's another doctor show but with a twist - it is set in the jungle. A jungle which is visited by tourists. Tourists who keep getting hurt in horrid ways. The tagline for the show seems to be "For some doctors, there are no boundaries."

I have never been a regular watcher of any medical dramas. But, I have watched both episodes of this show. It was entertaining and a little disturbing. Makes me never, ever want to visit South America. Could be why the show is shot in Hawaii. It probably won't help increase tourism to Brazil or Peru. Not many people want to be crushed by a python or get their arm stuck in a zip line way up high.
