Top Gear.

What a load of boring old tosh those silly jollies have become. I'm sure that they're great fun for the presenters and crew to traipse around continents in clapped out cars. Pointless, contrived and fast becomming tedious. Ewan and his mate have that gig.

Its getting like 'Last Of The Summer Wine'.

1. Take 3 old gits
2. Formulate some contrived stunt (drive across desert, go down steep hill in wheelbarrow)
3. Repeat each week.

'Wont' is future tense.

Did you like watching Ewan and his mate then on the "easy way down"
I haven't bothered with that one since the last farce "easy way round"
