Continuing on our DVD binge-fest, wifey & meself finished the Top Gear - season 10/Heaven & Hell box set last weekend. Fer those in the know, this is quite possibly the most entertaining car programme there is & this is reflected by the fact that it is the MOST downloaded programme on the internet.
The appeal lies in the ability of the programme to tap into the little kids in all of us with its silly races (Aston Martin DB9 vs Jet Fighter or Fiat 500 vs BMX bikes), seriously exotic wheels & the wanton destruction visited upon the lesser marques (Kelisa anyone?).
Topped off by the super sarcastic commentary of Messrs Clarkson, May & Hammond, Top Gear manages to be entertaining viewing not just fer car freaks but fer people like me wifey who had a ball with their silly challenges (eg trying to cross the English channel in half-arsed amphibious vehicles).
If ye have not been privy to the wit & humour of Top Gear, do check out the clips here to see what they think of our wonderful Malaysian cars . . .
