Hulu has added yet another exclusive series to it’s growing list of shows and movies. “Up To Speed” is now 4 episodes into its run on Hulu and though it’s a bit strange, it’s pretty interesting for the tourist in all of us.
Mount Rushmore? Seen it! Willis Tower? I’ve been there too! Everybody sees the same attractions everywhere they go. There are tons of TV shows about the “big” attractions in every town too. “Up To Speed” is about the stuff you may not know about. Find out why an ancient column from Facsist Italy is sitting near an out of the way bike path in Chicago, or what Order Number 11 means in Missouri.
The show is hosted by tour guide and oddball Timothy “Speed” Levitch. This guy not only shows you the never seen and out of the way places on this show, he talks to them too. Yeah! It’s kind of nuts. Kids may appreciate it, but adults may roll their eyes the first few times you watch a grown man talking to a giant rock. I suppose they have to do something different though to set it apart from the many of the other “tour guide” types of shows.
