Top Gear

The BBC knows how to have a ridiculously good time.

If silly middle-aged men screaming around race tracks in irrelevant planet-murdering supercars seems so wrong, you’re right. And everyone knows wrong is a blast. A rocket-powered Austin Mini launched off an Olympic ski jump? Soccer-playing VWs? Vietnam toured bottom to top on near-dead motorcycles? A drag race between a Bugatti Veyron and a fighter jet? BBC’s Top Gear has all of the above. It could be terrible, but it’s not. The hosts are personable, witty, honest and stupidly courageous. The writing is sharp and inventive and very, very funny.

This week’s Frandoms are by Rob Schlyecher at Spring Advertising.
