Just finished the latest episode of For All Mankind. It's a 'what if' the Soviets landed on the moon first. It's not bad, but gets a bit heavy handed on the social justice warrior scale. It was the late sixties, for pete's sake. Found myself waving the BS flag several times tonight. Can't say I'd recommend the show because of it.

I watch some rather esoteric stuff from time to time. Right now I'm watching a series called "Travels by Narrowboat" on Netflix.

A guy got tired of regular life so he chucked it all, bought a narrowboat, and cruises the canals of England. I think it's all shot with a GoPro camera or something and it started as a YouTube channel. Very slow pace with some great shots of the English countryside. Obviously not everyone's cup of tea but I find it relaxing and enjoyable.

I don't know how the guy does it without smoking a pipe though.

They were! Almost every episode with the original presenters was gold, it's laughable that the BBC thought Matt LeBlanc would be an acceptable replacement for Clarkson.
Absolutely the original cast and series was the best. The guests they had on the show were so fun too! Their review of the little Ford Fiesta was a classic!

Yes! The dynamic between Clarkson/Hammond/May is what made the show and cannot be duplicated.

The polar special is probably my personal favorite but the first Africa special is almost a tie.
