WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We watched it on TWC Channel 9 and enjoyed it very much. Keep 'em coming.
From whimsy to informative, the show was great.
It's the REAL desert w/Steve Brown.
Can't wait for the next episode.
I watched the show and was really impressed! Loved your music and the whole story! Great job! Will tune in every week!
Watched the show last night and thoroughly enjoyed it! Congratulations—we think you could be the next Huell Howser!
A must see.
Loved it!!! Really enjoyed it, Dude [except for the repeated references to aphid poop while I was eating dinner!].
He does a good job and I’ll watch the next one!
You, as a host, are wonderful. I hope it's going really well for you. You must be too busy to fart.
I loved it! What a professional, informative, and entertaining debut! I now have a new routine for my Monday nights.
! I thought the show was both attractive and informative
AWESOME program and you are SO confident!!!
Your new show is freakin' AWESOME!!! I've learned more about my beloved desert from your show than I have in the 30+ years I've been living in it. Thanks!
Within days of seeing the show, I made reservations to dine there with my daughters on their birthday. We explored the oasis, the gardens, the lovely grounds and then dined like queens! It was a wonderful experience and....I'm going back SOON!
