Off Topic: James May

James May: an authentic car buff, and a worthy successor to the Monty Python comic sensibility in British TV.

Lately I've become weary of Top Gear.  It's become a kind of "Brits do Jackass".  But James May has turned out to be a real find.  BBC America sometimes runs some of his other shows: James May's Toy Stories and James May's Man Lab.  Some episodes are on the internet.  Here's a link to a particularly funny Man Lab segment, "Bunned Aid for Abingdon", which is at the beginning and end of the hour-long show.  The intermediate segments are fine too, just not as hilariously presented.
