Re: New Top Gear
I never minded the dicking about. It was when they started scripting it that I found it unwatchable. Perhaps the three worst actors in history trying to make very badly written comedy look spontaneous and natural
Clarkson: Hey, let's put something on Mays car for shits and giggles
Hammond: yeah, that'll be hilarious, tee hee hee
It could just seem scripted because they do the same thing every single road trip. And like so much else in the series, it was funnier when it was newer.
Rimmer, on what period of history to live in-
“Well, It’d be the 19th century for me, one of Napoleon’s marshals.
The chance to march across Europe with the greatest general of all time and kill Belgians” - (White Hole).
