  1. I have all of the Top Gear episodes on dvds. Took me forever and a day to get them via BT.

    I still watch Top Gear when they come out on BBC America but they edit most the best parts like the news and any funny comments before and after they show their video clips.

    Also, when they them on BBC America, the so-called “new episodes” are at 2 seasons behind. AARRGGGHHH!!!

    Feels good to have the real thing tucked away in my dvd case.

  2. “I’d pay for Fawlty Towers.”

    I have paid for Farty Towels for years.
    Mainly by using anecdotal quotes that caused recipients to reply with a blank stare with a hint of a “is he off his meds again” concern in their eyes….and DON”T mention the war!
