It is very seldom when watching a TV show that you find yourself completely clicking with it. For me it's happened a handful of times over the last 10 years or so. One such time was when I watched House.
"Hugh Laurie: Let Them Talk - A Celebration of New Orleans Blues" is part heartfelt travelogue, part uncomfortable small club gig. Laurie's enthusiasm for all parts of Southern culture is matched by his charm in discussing it.
