This! Also they did the same exact jokes, I saw damn near every single one of them coming. They also had far too nice cars to be ruining them like that, I liked how they modified the cars in the Africa special they really had a Mad Max feel to them, here it was just fucking up good cars.This. I didn't see a connection between them and theirs car until the end where Jeremy was launching cans and balls from the Jag's exhaust. A good chunk of the show didn't even involve the cars.
What made the Bolivia special so incredible was that the drama was interwoven with their vehicles, they were all seen to be fighting side by side with their trucks to reach the end. In this the cars just happened to be props for their tired comic formula. That is until the end at the village which was incredible.
I don't have a problem with using scripts, a good deal of the show has always been scripted. They don't just grab a camera and start narrating a car review. Here though the segments try too hard and rely too much on the T.V. personas.
What I would rather have is a single goal (fighting the elements in junky vehicles or recreate a historic journey). The revolutionary thing about cars is that they allowed travel that wasn't possible for most before, I want to see that limit reached and exceeded.
I'm curious - would anyone be so kind as to identify the one song Jezza played to irritate Hamster? It sounds familiar, yet I can't figure it out.
