The Art of Making a Car TV Show

Watching TV is like smoking : you don't really like it, you don't really need it but you definitely can't help doing it...This comparison(which is a bit of a cliché) seems perfectly true...only it isn't. You see, smoking is not so good for your health, where the TV has nothing to do with it. Also, smoking can't tell you what's the weather like in Hawaii but the TV can show pictures of girls in bikini to assure you it's hot. So, there you are, watching TV is the perfect habit...but only if you are over the age of 164.

And this is due to the girly or pensionerish programmes aired most of the time...something like Oprah( the best show to watch if you like eating chocolate-burgers in front of the TV...all day long). The point is, for many people, watching TV can be a quite boring activity. But this is not the case with the UK hit Top Gear. It doesn't matter if you know anything about cars or if you like them...you can still watch the show and massively enjoy yourself. This is due to the three presenters : Clarkson, Hammond and May who, with the help of a fourth unknown driving myth, The Stig, pack what's now officially the most watched TV programme on the planet...

Here's a taster of what's about to come in season 16:



I can't give the recipe for the perfect TV show but , apparently , these guys found it...and of course they keep it secret. Why not try guessing it by watching the new series? :D
