My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
Also, it’s not airing on Canadian telly so it’s not in the column, but – the new American version of Top Gear is really dreadful, isn’t it? Jeremy Clarkson might be a colossal dickhead, but at least he’s sort of self-aware about being a colossal dickhead, and May/Hammond similarly recognize that although their love for cars is heartfelt it’s also sort of absurd. You don’t get that from the American hosts (Adam Ferrara and two professional car-guys who are wastes of on-camera space). They’re totally serious about how much they love cars. It’s kind of boring.
