Host Nick Watt heads to Albania where there are no traffic laws, there are 27 words for mustache, a woman can live as a man and a hip hop artist has become prime minister. Watt even appears as a special guest on a TV show because they think he is American. “Why is Albania so weird,” asks Watt as he heads south to the “Albanian Riviera” to fulfill his childhood dream of seeing the tiny mushroom-shaped bunkers that stand as a monument to one man’s paranoia. On his way, he makes a pit stop and discovers one of Albania’s more charming idiosyncrasies: the residents love America and President George W. Bush. In Fushe-Kruje, a giant statue of Bush was erected in the town square to commemorate the first visit by a U.S. president to the country after the fall of communism. The following day, Watt meets Diana, one of Albania’s few remaining “sworn virgins,” a woman who takes a vow to be a man and is legally and socially recognized as a man from then on, as long as they remain celibate. Watt continues his journey around the country, meeting with the prime minister and appearing on Albania’s answer to “The Daily Show” – a late night variety show complete with independent investigative news and dancing girls. He concludes that Albania is a pretty weird country, but that is not necessarily a bad thing! New series premieres Monday, June 30 at 10:00pm ET/PT.
