Koukussa - Madventures - Netflix

For the Pakistani reality game show, see Madventures (Ary Digital show).

Madventures is a Finnish travel documentary television series that concentrates on backpacking in the most off-the-beaten-path destinations on the planet. It is presented by Riku Rantala and Tuomas “Tunna” Milonoff. As the show's director and cameramen, they travel around the world exploring different cultures. They emphasize that they are on a journey, not on a holiday. The show often features local practices that are culturally unacceptable or controversial where the episodes air, to the point where the showmakers have been accused of deliberate, excessive use of shock imagery. The show premiered in Finland on the channel Sub, on 13 October 2002. Its international premiere was in the United States on the Travel Channel on 21 September 2009. The United Kingdom premiere on Fiver is not yet decided. Originally Internationally, Madventures is distributed by the Target Entertainment Group. The show includes a “MadCook” section, in which the travellers attempt to eat some of the least favoured dishes around the world — for example, monkey brains in the Amazon Rainforest and dog meat in Bali. Another light hearted feature are the waking up scenes, where Tuomas will often shock Riku while he is still asleep in bed.

Koukussa - Production - Netflix

The travel documentary is made on a relatively low budget with no major production crew but rather just the two presenters travelling together with the film equipment. Riku Rantala is the writer, presenter and producer of the series, while Tuomas “Tunna” Milonoff directs and films. The first two seasons were made in Finnish, but for international audiences, season three of the show was sold to the Travel Channel and Fiver and the language was switched to English. The third series was broadcast starting in Finland in early April 2009 with each episode being 10 minutes longer than the international version.
