The first episode sees Billy travel from Chicago to Seattle on the mighty Empire Builder. Travelling from East to West, across six states, Billy stops off to witness a true slice of Americana at the Minnesota State Fair, where giant butter sculptures, corn beauty pageants and live animal births are just some of the bamboozling entertainment on offer. He tackles a world famous ‘juicy lucy' burger in Saint Paul before skirting the badlands of North Dakota to experience the highs and lows of an oil boom town. He marvels at the thousand upon thousand acres of uninterrupted prairieland before arriving at Montana's answer to Glasgow, Scotland. Glasgow, Montana is small town America in all its glory. And Montana is a land of cowboys and ranching families who have worked the terrain for generations. Billy's journey's end is in windswept Seattle - not in the glamorous tech city but Tent City, where many of Seattle's homeless live. Here, Billy is moved by the tales of its residents.
