Alternate Route Full Episode Guide

  • In the season finale, Matt Hranek is on the East Coast snatching up as many blue crab as he can catch with some of the best fishermen. Plus, he looks down the barrel of a custom American shotgun and takes it out for a test drive. Then it's off to admire the restoration of America's last commercial sailboat fleet in this colonial settlement-turned-sports mecca.

  • While in Chicago, Matt has hot dogs for every meal of the day and is fitted for a bespoke jacket by a legendary Italian tailor.

  • Matt Hranek learns the art of late-night frog hunting (and eating), and then has a close encounter with Florida's most dangerous wildlife as he visits the Everglades in a '75 Ford Bronco. Plus, he goes tarpon fishing with a Hall of Fame guide Steve Huff.

  • Matt visits Charleston, S.C., where he goes clamming, shops at one of the nation's largest flea markets and visits with an award-winning bartender.

  • Matt goes on an ill-advised fishing trip off the tip of Long Island. Also: a look inside a clam shack kitchen; and a day on board a commercial-fishing trawler.

  • In the series premiere, Matt melts his taste buds with fried chicken and tries bourbon made of quinoa as he drives around Nashville in a '69 Chevy pickup.
