There aren’t many things in life I love more than a good airport documentary!
Unfortunately I don’t think BBC Three’s “Bangkok Airport: Airport Of Smiles” show could be called a “documentary,” though that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable.
Rather than actually talking about the operations of Bangkok Airport, the show focuses on how freaking dumb the Brits traveling through there are. Like, nonstop for six episodes. And it’s hilarious. I’ve written about episodes one, two, and three so far.
I only caught up on episodes four and five over the weekend, and they’re possibly the best (or worst) yet, depending on your perspective.
Episode four covers Valentine’s Day at the airport, and the dude that decides to travel to Bangkok to get plastic surgery from Dr. Titty (not making this stuff up):
And episode five was good as well, though I don’t actually remember the details (heavy drinking is recommended in order to maximize the enjoyment of this show):
Oh man, oh man, oh man. I don’t know whether I’ll be happy or sad when this six episode show is over. If nothing else I’m excited to return to Bangkok Airport soon so I can hunt down my favorite “characters” from the show.
Anyone else still “enjoying” this show?
