Summary

Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father season 5 is great if you need an eye-freshener with a sense of humor during a pandemic where travel restrictions were a bummer.

This review of Netflix’s Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father season 5 does not contain spoilers. 

Who misses traveling? I do. The pandemic situation has made all the free-spirited go into starvation mode. But, hey! Here’s some recommendation to ease your craving for adventure: watch Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father. We’ve finally reached the final season and this show is giving us a free journey throughout the UK, which is quite different than the previous because it’s more of a historical, aesthetic, and charming adventure of famous heritage places in the UK.

Season 5 consists of 3 episodes worth a binge-watch while eating chips and soda. For the first episode, the Whitehalls are giving us a sneak peek of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant where they eat the Asian fusion before kicking off the adventure. With classical music playing in the background, the father-and-son duo go on adventures from attempting to celebrate the fertile tradition with learning the Morris dance; exploring the historic footprint of Winston Churchill at his historic house–where we can see the literal debates between a conservative, uptight man with his vibrant, modern, and witty son; and last but not least visiting the Burgh Land–a resting place for a famous figure Agatha Christie to finish her breathtaking novel–but obviously, there ain’t no way Jack and Mr. Whitehall go to write a poetic novel. They’re here for the chaos.

The first episode wraps beautifully and is probably one of my most endearing moments from watching Jack having a heartfelt conversation with his mother, Hillary, by the edge of the cliff. Yes, literally, right at the edge of the cliff, high above the water, rock facing the cliff, while the waves are crashing down below you. On the other side, Mr. Whitehall is having a tea party and playing chess with his favorite ceramic doll ever, Winston.

Moving on to episode 2, we’re exploring more of the countryside, a more serene kind of adventure. From trying to organizing sheep in Wales, hiking and taming the llamas in the Lake District, Nessie sighting and hunting by ferry, to having a traditional dinner together in a dark and gothic palace on a Scottish Island. After all so-called healing trips, we’re set on a magical adventure by going to travel with The Jacobite trains–the famous train of the Harry Potter series which happens to be Jack’s favorite–to travel by the famous bridge of Harry Potter far to the Syke, a place with fond memory for Mr. Whitehall. The episode wraps up nostalgically at the Royal Museum, where Mrs. Whitehall joins the squad to learn how to march.

The last episode basically ends up with a series of footage of the best travel clips of where they reminiscing and reflecting on their entire adventure with heartfelt discussions through highlight moments. One of the highlight points of the series lies within the witty conversation and realistic relationship of the father and son duo. Of course with its British humor and endless bickering. But I need to admit that some parts were forced and seem like it’s trying too hard, but it’s acceptable. But other than the humor, I need to point out that the scenery in each episode is breathtakingly amazing! It tickles my free-spirit and adventurous soul to pack my case and wander the wonderful land of the UK.

To sum it up, Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father season 5 is great if you need an eye-freshener with a sense of humor during a pandemic where the travel restriction is a bummer, not to mention to dive deep into the wonderful land of the UK, in a humorous way. Enjoy the endless bickering and the adventures of the Whitehalls!
