I don't watch TV unless it's Top Gear. haha

I don't really like shows that bring attention to what we do, because then that makes life difficult for us, but that's me.

Saw Top Gear the other night, good show.  I had an '86 Merkur XR4TI in college and they had a show about it, pretty cool!

If not, you can access a hell of a lot of episodes through Netflix, if you have it.

I found the BBC in HD on channel 920, I saw the one where those dudes drove a pickup truck to the north pole, it was fuckin hilarious.  I'm DVRing a bunch of them tonight, haha

hahaha that's a good one, but you HAVE to see the episode where they become truckers.   Or the Reliant Robin episode.  (There are so, so SO many.)

I have yet to see the Saab episode though, I heard they dropped a 900 on its roof.

I need to see those ones.  I found this on Youtube since I deleted last night after seeing it   2:45 to 2:55 is classic.  Good thing I quit smoking, if I hadn't, I may have watched that 1000 times in a row last night, hahaha

I'd share my favorite part of the trucker episode...but it would spoil it.  Definitely made me cry from laughing so hard.

So here's the full Reliant Robin clip, because I don't know what episode it's buried in.
