There is no Next Episode of Better Late Than Never planned.
A fun and entertaining adventure for all ages, "Better Late Than Never" features four celebrated stars - Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman - taking the journey of a lifetime, traveling across Asia with comedian Jeff Dye as their sidekick and guide. The five will navigate their way through each city - communicating with the local population, immersing themselves in local traditions and enjoying exotic food - all the while dealing with the unexpected twists and frequently hilarious turns that any trip presents. The first stop on their six-city, four-country Asian tour is Tokyo, Japan, where they are immediately fish out of water and can't even find their way out of the train station. Highlights of their visit include staying at a capsule hotel, appearing on a popular Japanese morning show, trying crazy culinary delicacies and visiting the top of the world-famous Tokyo Tower. Then they are off to see Mt. Fuji on an unforgettable karaoke bus trip that completes the first leg of their life-changing, international excursion.
The fun continues across Asia for Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye as the adventure-seeking five visit Kyoto, Japan, a magical ancient city where William is determined to "find his Zen." They begin with a trip to a Geisha house, where they eat and drink and drink some more, and later they visit a Samurai warrior school as well as a no-nonsense monk who whips the guys into shape. Then they're off to Hong Kong, where William makes sure they live the "high life" and stay at one of the top hotels in the world, rent a yacht and have custom suits designed by the very best tailors. Later, they visit an ancient Chinese medicine shop for some unusual culinary offerings before hitting the streets for a little song and dance.
The Asian adventure continues as the guys arrive in South Korea with one mission in mind - to rediscover their youth! Their first stop is a K-pop school where young hopefuls learn how to be Korean pop stars. There they learn fun dance moves from the hit K-pop band Girls Generation and shoot a music video with them. After living the high life the week before in Hong Kong, they are back to sleeping on floors when their sidekick, Jeff Dye, arranges for them to stay at a classic Korean spa that only costs $6 a night - and for good reason. Then they get more adventure than they bargained for when Jeff tells the guys he's taking them to the DMZ, the demilitarized zone that serves as the border between North and South Korea, considered one of the most dangerous place on Earth. Later, still determined to do what the young kids do, they eat at a restaurant that serves live octopus, and visit a nightclub where each of the guys individually try to help Jeff get a girl.
It's the last leg of their trip and their first stop is Phuket, Thailand, where the five take part in a wild water fight before celebrating Terry's 67th birthday. Jeff takes Terry to get his first-ever tattoo, while William and Henry get bent into all different directions with a not-so-relaxing Thai massage. George takes the gang to watch Thai boxing before stepping into the ring with William, and, later, Terry gets serenaded by a special guest at an unforgettable birthday dinner. Then it's off to Chiang Mai, their final destination, for a luxurious stay at an amazing hotel. In one of the most moving experiences of their trip, they spend the day at an elephant sanctuary and then visit the women and children of the long-neck tribe.
