There just serving us up their cookie cutter view of everything. Probably wrote it before viewing. Cars bad. Clarkson Problematic.
Hmm. The Guardian don't rate a show made by an older, white, petrolhead male Tory voter. Gee what an absolute and total shocker... laugh
So I actually read the guardinista review, or some of it, wow I know we say the guardians way of going about its business is largely interchangeable with the daily mail these days, but I read the daily mails review of South park when it was first launched and it could have been written by the same individual, such is the depth of determination to trash it combined with catastrophic ignorance of what the show sets out to do.

I mean the first sentence mentioning his contempt for farming... just shouts of the shallowness and ignorance of the reviewer, flippantly tossing out bad words at the thing because "we" don't approve of.

I am a Clarkson fan, so presumed I would enjoy this.

So thought I would just watch one, see how I got on.

It's absolutely bloody fantastic. I haven't enjoyed anything new for ages! Ended up watching all of the available episodes back to back.

I think Kaleb is going to end up an internet sensation, he is brilliant.

What's it like for kid friendly content?

Is it sweary / adult themes as well as the farming?

There is swearing, it would actually be good for children to watch, you learn a lot, but they do say the F word a lot. Depends on age of said child I guess.

Appreciate the help. They're 6 and 8, so that's a bit no!

On a related note, there are a few versions of Taskmaster with the naughty words bleeped / cut out. They love that!

Going off topic a bit, I wonder why streaming platforms don't offer multiple audio options - with swearing retained, and with bleeps. I'm sure they could even automate the bleeping these days.

I nearly made it to the end of the opening credits. It looks like the same over contrived formula that ultimately turned me off both TG and then TGT.

Clarkson is playing a character. And it’s old and it’s tired.

I’ll stick with Harry’s Farm. If I want comedy, I’ll watch England V Croatia.

I can’t help but feel that if you didn’t even make it through the credits, you were probably only opening it so you could post online about how you wouldn’t be watching anyway.

Why bother?

Into episode 2 and really liking it, need Caleb to actually voice his opinions on JC when he screws up, I'd certainly be shaking my head a few times in his shoes.

Harry has mentioned and plugged this series a couple of times on his social media. Launch day today has him doing farm stuff in his tractor, yet still has time for a quick post to remind his followers about Clarkson. Good bloke.

He tells me he is gutted about your failure to endorse.
