Rogue Trip Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Stars: Bob Woodruff, Mack Woodruff
Bob and Mack Woodruff are the father/son hosts of Rogue Trip, a new Disney+ travelogue series following the duo as they explore the local culture of different countries, from Colombia and Lebanon to Ukraine and Papua New Guinea, among others. To most Westerners, these countries have long been defined by their history of war and violent unrest, but Rogue Trip aims to shine a light on the common humanity that unites the global community of people just trying to live their lives by any means possible.
Bob Woodruff has spent the last 25 years as a reporter for ABC News, though he’s best known for suffering life-threatening injuries in Iraq. In 2006, Woodruff was embedded with soldiers when an IED explosion nearly killed him and his cameraman, Doug Vogt. A large part of Woodruff’s skull had to be removed in order to ease pressure on his brain, and the reporter was, for a time, not expected to survive. However, Woodruff was lucky enough to beat the odds and even return to work after starring in the documentary, To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports.
In Disney+’s new family-friendly father-son travel series Rogue Trip, ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff and his 28-year-old son Mack go on an adventure – or several, to be more accurate – in exotic and far-flung places. In some of them, Mack recalls seeing his father on TV. In all of them, they’re embracing the local culture, climate and wildlife, learning about not just each other but the people they meet – many of whom have had their lives upended by industry and capitalism.
In that sense, Rogue Trip feels a bit hypocritical, being a co-project of Disney’s brands and so enthusiastically espousing its family-first values. It’s an ABC personality on a National Geographic adventure streaming on Disney+, a corporate chimera if ever there was one, but its smartly-chosen host puts Bob and Mack on the side of the locals, since they, too, have had their lives upended. In 2006, an IED accident left Bob with a long road to recovery that had to be aided by his children, who helped him learn to walk and speak again. As Bob bonds with Mack, this role-reversal looms over their interactions, which are much different now, whatever part of the world they’re in.
Rogue Trip is a NatGeo series, though, so many parts of the world are explored, from remote Colombia still shadowed by the spectre of war to Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Ukraine. With most of the world still locked down, this might be the furthest away from home you’re likely to get. I can think of much worse company for a staycation that the Woodruffs.
While promoting the Disney+ release of Rogue Trip, the Woodruff boys discussed working on the series and how it strengthened their bond as father and son. They reflect on Bob’s life-changing injuries and how it influenced Bob’s high school years at home. They talk about going to great lengths to avoid being “tourists” in the places they visit, Mack’s shoe obsession notwithstanding. Finally, they share their hopes for season 2 in terms of the countries they would like to visit and the ones that they couldn’t get permission to visit for the first batch of episodes.
