Top Gear Legacy

   At The Cinema                           

Top Gear—It Just Keeps on Giving 

Hurry up- you're getting married in 30 minutes- we're gonna be late!
  • Okay Okay - I'm almost ready

That was your boss.  If you don't have the new plan on his desk in 60 minutes,  he said don't bother at all
  • Okay Okay - I'm almost ready

[Answering machine] For the love of god man, I  know you're in there .  There's smoke pouring out of your windows!  GET out of there!

We've all been there.  The book that's so gripping that you CANNOT put it down.  A television equivalent is the BBC's SPOOKS (or MI5).  Netflix has 10 series (11 is current). BBC says you can watch every episode here, but I'll be damned if I can get one started.  Has the BBC blocked the colonies?  Anyone know? .

By the By, this is another beauty I was introduced to by celebtities that drove the reasonably priced car on TopGear.  Others include, Doc Martin, *Little Britain (David Walliams), Anything with Jimmy Carr, Rob Brydon, Steve Coogan, and the Incredible Ranulph Fiennes. 

*Little Britain was sort of ca-ca early on, but it developed until, by the end, I was howling in anticipation of what I knew was coming.  Not for everyone.

Oh my, while I was assembling this post, el-jefe sent me this "Thank you, Jeremy" moment.

I freely acknowledge that, if I lived in GB, I'd know that some or all of these people are the same left-wing drum beaters who've have left me unable to enjoy American movies and telly.  Don't tell me.  Please.
