10/10. Fucking. Awesome. Television.
Succinct review of the RC-F... and my only weak spot in this episode occurs in this film with the LFA. Love seeing it, but they've already reviewed it multiple times... it didn't need 4 minutes of airtime again.
The news was GREAT!! They did it again, they started with quick, nerdy car stuff. Even afterwards, the news was relatively on point with only one long winded barely car-related story.
. I mean, I loved her on X-Files when I was a teen. Here, now in my late 30s, I find she looks fabulous
. And that accent.... oh my god. It helps that she appeared to be engaged and enjoying herself as well.
Lastly... obviously, the raison d'etre for my giddiness. They finally came to British Columbia. And my god... they did it right. Forestry roads aside (i.e., the ones where they did the last leg of their race on Wolf Mountain) I have driven every kilometer of their trip multiple times (including that exact Canadian Tire). I knew at every single moment where they were in BC just by the frame. I loved it. I loved that they had rugged trucks for rugged terrain. I loved the cinematography. I loved the locations. The film itself is equally deserving, because it was fun (Richard "stabbing" James in the cock made me laugh out loud), it was factual, and it didn't feel like a rehash of anything they had done previously.
Bravo, gentlemen. Come back again. Anytime. As it says on the signs when you come in from Alberta, "the best place on Earth."
FYI for those wondering... this has been an ununusually mild winter for BC, so that snowfall is relatively mild for those mountain ranges. Even had they done this one year earlier, I bet it would have been a lot harder for all parties involved.

In other news, yes, go spend your money in the Kootenays! (which is where they were). Hot springs, wildlife, few people and a couple gorgeous lakes in the summer. It's lovely.
+ 1 000 000. We live on Vancouver Island now, but I have every intention of buying recreational property somewhere between the Kootenays and the Alberta Rockies. I may never leave.

That was how I felt when I first heard her natural accent for the first time some years ago. It was like ordering your favourite meal in a restaurant then finding out it comes with a side order of a jackpot lottery win.
You and I have the same taste in women, evidently.
