I don't know if you like Top Gear/Grand Tour show or presenters. But one of them has made a genuinely great Farming show on Amazon Prime. Clarkson's Farm is a fish out of water show that is genuine and fun and unique. All the people on the show are amazing characters. Gerald and Caleb are real standouts with Charlie being the deliverer of real news. If you have Prime subscription do yourself a favor and watch it.

Watch Clarkson's Farm – Season 1 | Prime Video (amazon.com)



"Might have a little turd on my boots" instant classic theme song

I remember the very first Clarkson top gear episode, we had just moved country and BBC was the only television in English and they were going on about their brand new show Top Gear.. that show meant a lot to me. Wish i could find the full collection from season 1 on...

...

But I won't watch this, i just don't watch telly much anymore, latest attempt was The Mandalorian and i lost interest halfway into season 2

I'm kind of the same, barely watch anything these days because I lose interest fast.

But you have to watch this. As someone said earlier there is nothing better to just wind down after a day of work. It's extremely entertaining, peaceful, funny, interesting and full of heart. And beautyfully shot as well.

Watched the first episode and frankly i can't believe how well its made. Feels like old top gear really. you just clue yourself towards the screen to never look back. I can't believe how they can make this so interesting to watch.

All around absolutely fantastic series. I couldn't stop watching it.

Everybody is its own character and everybody feels so recognisable in my own life. No script and just pure characters is what u see here and its great.

It introduces people towards farm life that probably never spend a single moment thinking about it and make it more known how much of a struggle things are and what work is related towards it and how money is tight.

The music / scenery the goals he sets for himself its all just been a great journey. I liked the humor, when things get real even for him when he realizes the sheep where already taken care of before he even knew it which kinda shocked him u saw it clearly in his eyes and later his buddy sheep that always came towards him being dead.

His wife or girlfriend whatever it is, lovely person, the shop was great, the wasabi was great with kaleb. That one guy that u can't understand reminds me of a friends dad of mine. He talks in a way it just sounds gibberish . but u don't want to be rude so u gotta talk around it.

The ending was also really well done, and frankly after watching him i would say, he's probably better off on the farm. Dude seems to absolutely love being there and lets be honest here, it gives you tons of freedom that a city doesn't allow. Things are just more real and he notices that big time.

Also at the end of the day, he didn't do that bad with his farm from what i found out even while obviously he dumped a shit ton of money into the farm.

I will absolutely watch season 2.

Tell me Lisa, what was it that attracted you to multi-millionaire Jeremy Clarkson who is usually out of the country for 5 of every 12 months?
She has a history of dating wealthy men, and wealthy men have a history of liking to date attractive women.

Finished this the other week. Amazing show, overall just a ton of fun and really gives you a higher appreciation for the hard work farmers put into their jobs.
You can also tell they had some of the top gear / grand tour crew on this, since it was all really nicely shot and edited.

Great to hear there will be a season 2!.

Take it you never watched the Mrs Merton show? Don’t know if you are UK based, but we had a small bald magician called Paul Daniels who was married to his assistant the rather glamourous Debbie McGee.

The joke on the show was ‘tell me Debbie, what attracted you to multi millionaire Paul Daniels’

And that’s all I meant with my post.
