- A one-of-a-kind travelogue.
- Spend some time in the nation's most unusual slammers.
The Marks--Sceurman and Moran--have seen facets of America that would chill the local chamber of commerce to the bone. They have turned their shared obsession into a unique series of guides to the weirdest that the nation has to offer, and now they bring their unique travelogue to the screen in this fascinating series celebrating the dark, twisted, offbeat and unusual.
Mark and Mark hit the road to investigate our national obsession with crime, starting on the dusty road where Bonnie and Clyde met their bloody end and finishing in the scorching Arizona desert where chain gangs are still the order of the day. In-between, they check out a Texas town with nine state prisons and examine the career of dapper escape artist Willie Sutton.
