This week, we pay homage to one of our favorite TV shows. This is the best show in Britain, by far, and one of the best shows ever. We're talking about the Petrolheads of Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond, and...of course...The Stig, in Top Gear.
Yes, it's a car show but you don't need to be a car nut to enjoy it. My wife, who is not into cars at all really, loves the show. It's a highly entertaining mix of frank car reviews (they will trash a half-million car in a minute if they find something they don't like), adventures (there treks to the North
Pole, across Africa...("Oliver!"), and the very scary trip to Bolivia), and stunts.
Try it, you'll like it very much indeed. It airs on BBC America, and you can also download many clips on Youtube and at Topgear.com.
