And good riddance to him!And the fact that the executive who gave JC the most grief is gone (bye-bye Mr. Cohen) means the door for a return is wider.
They would be very silly not to, especially with such low overheads - even lower than Man Lab, surely - and I'm certain JM would be happy to be paid to fiddle about in a shed while being served the occasional cuppa2. The Reassembler show has got to be the most cost-effective production that BBC4 can do ....
3. Prediction: BBC4 *will* probably order a second series.
You do realize that this is part of the setting, something which they purposely created? People are fed up with all the fake silliness and crave for something "real", including the crew into it all breaks the 4th wall to a point where it becomes "really real". It's endearing and that was the whole point, on purpose.The tea's probably more expensive than the camera operators, it's quite amateur-ish. :lol:
Clip from S2 EP1:Christmas: Hornby Train Set
James May: The Reassembler, Series 2 Episode 1 of 4
Much like Santa Claus, James May has spent the year in his workshop getting ready for Christmas, in a festive special in which he reassembles his favourite childhood Christmas present.
But this isn't just any Christmas present, this is the one that changed his life and sent him on to a path of mechanical intrigue and reassembly. This is the Hornby Flying Scotsman with realistic chuffing sounds which James ripped open on Christmas Day 1972.
Laid out in all its 138 tiny component parts, James lovingly reassembles the train as well as his memories of Christmases and toys past.
From the exhilarating re-magnetising of the motor's magnets to some thrilling wheel-quartering amidst a backdrop of James's continued bafflement of electricity, we watch as James rebuilds the entire train set and hopes at the end his Christmas wish will come true and the train will start up and realistically chuff into the night.
