Watch this clip.

It's 12 minutes, which I know is a huge investment, and it takes a couple of minutes to get going, but it's worth it. I was literally in tears. My dog needed to see if I was okay.

At this point, the timeline needs to be timelined... or updated. I haven't actually seen the timeline in a while!

Jeremy Clarkson is hilarious. Top Gear is one of the best shows on british TV for the last few years.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

I saw that episode a while back, pretty late at night, and burst out laughing the first time he rolls the car over.

I'm not sure that the "British" qualifier is even necessary.

It's always been unacceptable.

It's one thing if I'm presenting it as if everyone needs to watch it. I didn't do that. I said it's for people who need a laugh, which is code BTW for people feeling down.

People for whom perhaps the last thing they want to hear is "I already got my laugh, and you're ignorant for not having had it yet".


(yes, I got the fixinated joke. I liked that one better. )

Stop being a pussy. The Timeline was once a respected and venerable way to be an annoying asshole to someone who's earnestly trying to make sad people laugh with a video we all saw a couple years ago. Roll with it

large man + tiny little car + falling over = priceless.

when he pushed the car upright by opening the door, that's what got me.

The video actually makes me sad. And I'm not even from that country. It's a great piece of social-commentary filmmaking I think.....applicable to many/most modern Western countries, with the exception of zee Germans shaking their head sadly at the old-fashioned concept of "soul"

The Americans of course haven't considered it relevant since 1971

Thanks to Netflix, I've seen nearly every episode of the series, but this was just as funny the second time around.

It always seemed like I'd enjoy it, and of course it has legions of adoring fans who always pimp it, but my amount of TV viewing has dropped to almost zero.

I still have 6 unwatched episodes from this season's Mythbusters, and I've been getting through those at the rate of about one a month.

I'm ultimately way too antsy for TV and movies.

In trying to come up with a reply to this, I have realized if I acknowledge your great skill and ability at being an annoying asshole, I then become a greater annoying asshole.

This must be the Heisenberg ****wad Principle I keep hearing about.

Laughed til I cried. I hadn't seen this one. This is better than the Ford Fiesta review which I absolutely loved.

Somewhat amusing the first time he rolled it. After that I was, "meh."

Sorry.

You know, what they (and by "they" I believe it was NBC in the late 90's): "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!"

I had never seen this before and I was literally LOLing, so i tip my hat at you Mr. .
What, me worry?
