Zac Saves The Earth (Series Thoughts: Down To Earth with Zac Efron S01, Netflix)

Yay for me but I finally finished the first season of Zac Efron’s ‘Down to Earth with Zac Efron,’ on Netflix. It wasn’t such a tough watch, to be honest. Most episodes are less than forty minutes, and Efron is delightful eye candy. But really, the episodes are a mixed bag. I mean, I get what he is trying to do – augment the traditional travelogue series with a message, and that is we should start caring for our planet, and in doing so we take better care of our bodies. In the show, he finds ways to get sustainable energy, and tips on eating better. But sometimes, episodes are so dry. I get it that Efron. can’t have too much fun all of the time, but as viewers, that’s what we want – in that sense a healthy balance would have been nice. But I do appreciate the exposure he is giving these platforms, whether it be acquiring the best drinking water, or making sure surfaces are green. I like him most when he gets to be himself, and is vulnerable – the episode in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria is a memorable one.
