Another comment I find confusing - In every episode, in every opening credit, they make a point of highlighting the support crew. You see them meet the support crew several times, you listen to them consult with the crew and, for at least one episode, they work together to overcome obstacles.

I find myself wondering if maybe some of you are watching a different show?
Exactly. For most of LWR they were nowhere near the bikes. Yes they did meet up at least once in each country, and they all helped each other thru the Road of Bones, but for the most part they were separate. That was the whole point of having Claudio. They needed a cameraman on a bike to follow E&C.

I agree, its almost as if some of you ARE watching a different show.
