Geeks over Wings: Top Gear is Not Just for Petrol Heads!
So last night I was out with my boys, and we spent over an hour just talking about geek cred. All geek roads lead to BBC programming. This is a proven fact. We hit Doctor Who, Sherlock, Black Books, Jonathan Creek, QI, and most of the more popular romping grounds.
Then we got to Top Gear. I’ve had a couple of friends, who watch nearly as much BBC programming as I do, tell me that they don’t watch Top Gear, because they’re not into cars. I need to say this again and people need to understand it:
Top Gear is NOT JUST ABOUT CARS!
Top Gear is about history, it’s about art, it’s about driving technique, it’s about absurd humor, it’s about three guys who are the best of friends having the time of their lives doing exactly what they want to do. Top Gear, despite being full of explosions, fender benders, and squealing tires, is still highly educational, and exceedingly fun. It is a celebration of technology!
I urge everyone who has even a passing interest in BBC programming to watch any three episodes of Top Gear. I guarantee that you will be entertained even if you don’t decide to watch it regularly. I’ve you are one of the unfortunate few that watched the U.S. version of Top Gear on the History channel without first seeing the original, I apologize and I urge you to give the original a try.
More Episode Notes to Come
I’ve been tired and distracted this week, but I promise I am going to return to Matt Smith’s Doctor and the Winchesters. I have been watching Sherlock too, but I’m going to rewatch it from the beginning before I express my opinions.
Oh and its time for our gang to get off the friggin farm on The Walking Dead. Enough whining and being sad. Pack up and hit the road already.
