No Top Gear until
I have to say, this is a sad day for all of humanity. I'm not sure the human race can survive such a horrible calamity.
You may think I'm joking, but no...Jezza announced on twitter that there will be no Top Gear until 2013. Sigh.
You see, I have two loves concerning television. Top Gear and Mythbusters.
And of those Top Gear is my favorite, for a decade now.
350 million viewers per episode seems to suggest they are doing something right.
But the show apparently can't compete with Cowell and his fat singers. Jeremy thinks the most likely culprit is reality TV led by Simon Cowell.
Did I spell that right? Oh, wait...I nearly forgot...don't give a shit...I despise Cowell and every thing he does, and that includes breathing. I truly do think the man is a waste of human skin.
The world would be much better off without Simon.
I know, I know, there is other nonsense to watch, but this show is dear to my heart...mainly because it's the ultimate guy show.
I could care less about supercars, honestly, I just like to see the presenters of Top Gear bicker and muck about.
I was biting my nails and actually crying when Richard Hammond crashed that Vampire jet car. And even though these guys are British - and hate all things American - I still feel like they'd be fun to hang out with.
Below is a photo of Jeremy Clarkson mucking about in an Ariel Atom - an astonishing open-bodywork streetcar with a Civic engine.
I must share though, that their 'cheap car challenges' are what I like best. The Police Car Challenge, the 10,000 Pound Supercar Challenge, the 1,500 Pound Porsche Challenge and the Great British Cars Challenge are the best.
But enough about that.
The real chemistry is the guys involved...Jeremy Clarkson (always right), Richard Hammond (agreeable and photogenic), and James May. (3 years older than me, but I identify with him very much)
Anyhow, no Top Gear until next year...which really sucks. Buttloads of suck. In fact...scratch that, because I feel like an entire cargo ship of suck just got delivered to my door.
And I wonder if the rest of the world will feel the same as I do.
Somehow, I think they will.
One thing, however. If you haven't followed James May's non-Top Gear career, this would be an excellent time to do so. I highly recommend his Toy Stories.
As a side note, although I'm not gay, I would marry James May. Clarkson is too bossy, and Hammond is too much of a bellend, but May would make a great wife.
Are you looking forward to
the next season of Top Gear?
What are your favorite bits?
