Thanks for the heads up. I used to love Samantha Brown, she had a series of travel shows back when the Travel Channel was actually about travel. Passport to Europe, Girl Meets Hawaii, Passport to Great Weekends and more.

But it's been 6-8 years since I've seen her in any regular series (she did a couple of one-off specials over the years). Glad to see PBS picked up this new series.

Yes, thanks for posting. Like astrohip, I haven't seen Samantha Brown in years, but I've always liked her. Per the article, it sounds like she has wonderful things to say about Houston.

I thought it was good. I guess I was thinking it would be more a broad overview, but it was really focused on just a few people (Ortega, 247, the St. Arnold's guy, etc). Still gave a great snapshot of what makes Houston such a unique, vibrant, different city.

Loved the Phoenicia segment.

Loved the Phoenicia segment.

When I saw that it was only a 1/2 hour program , I knew it wasn't going to be that extensive in its coverage of the entire region, but it did focus on some interesting personalities and pretty much stuck to the downtown area.
