Ewan McGregor is one of the most charming men alive, and in this backstage look at his Apple TV+ series Long Way Up, we can see that if you ever wanted to be real-life friends with a man like that, this is the show you'll want to watch. You'll see the history of his friendship with his best friend Charley Boorman and get a feel for what it's like to hang out with these guys on an epic international trek. If you like travel, you couldn't ask for cooler companions.
This is part three of his "travel the world on motorcycles" adventures with Boorman, after Long Way Round (2004) and Long Way Down (2007), and this time they're going from the "very bottom of South America" all the way to Los Angeles — on electric bikes (Harley Davidson prototypes, even) — which gives the pair a whole new set of challenges.
New episodes of Long Way Up drop Fridays on Apple TV+.
Andy Hunsaker has a head full of sitcom gags and nerd-genre lore, and can be followed @AndyHunsaker if you're into that sort of thing.
