And now on the History Channel, following the success of its other fine “historical” programs like Gangland, Ice Road Truckers, IRT: Deadliest Roads, and my all time favorite Swamp People, I give you the American version of Top Gear. A show about cars.
Oh? What’s that you say? Why is Top Gear on the History Channel and not say, the Speed Channel? Beats the crap out of me! What do any of those shows have to do with history? Nothing. Not a damn thing. Do these shows have any redeeming quality? Have you ever seen Swamp People?!
I complain about TV too much. I know. But seriously WTF?
Another little tidbit of ironic television injustice. You know what’s on the Speed Channel when Top Gear is on the History Channel? A show about classic cars. Old cars. Historical cars. I give up.
