NOFX: Backstage Passport

(Fuse, Tuesday, April 15, 10 p.m.)

The Rundown: Forty-something punk rockers try to recapture indie glory days with danger-filled tour to 20 countries, including Peru, South Africa and China.

Pros: Great characters and insane situations — no need to be a punk fan to enjoy or relate.

Cons: Some might blanch at Fat Mike and co.’s naivete and risk-taking, partly in the name of reality TV.

The Score: The tour’s contrived, but the situations and emotions are compelling.
