  • Oddly, this filler show harkens back to the old-school episodes of Geography Now, where the setting was simple, the graphics were easy on the eyes, and there was only ONE person hosting the show. I enjoyed this more than the current episodes of Geography Now, which has become a bloated music video hosted by an army of casting extras from the United Colors of Benetton.

Actually one of the few places Hitler won over through negotiations rather than bloodshed. My great-grandfather fled from Sudetenland during the war, so I'm missing some representation here.
