Shows To Tivo: ‘Richard Hammond’s Crash Course’
I love finding cool little shows you can Tivo and enjoy later. Here is another one from BBC America: Richard Hammond’s Crash Course.
Richard is best known for being a presenter on the BBC’s Top Gear.
Richard Hammond exits the driver’s seat and leaves his comfort zone, trading America’s monstrous machines for America’s most daring and distinctive jobs in the second season of BBC AMERICA’s original series “Richard Hammond’s Crash Course,” produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. In each episode, he will face head-on new, wildly unfamiliar, comical and, at times, frightening occupations – with less than five days to master each job. From balancing himself on a paper thin paddleboard above the shark-infested Pacific ocean and peddling the vertical San Francisco terrain as a bike messenger to braving the bold feats of a Hollywood stuntman – viewers will see Richard attempt to master skills that often take years to learn. – BBC Official Website
There is something mesmerizing about watching a Brit trying to master iconic American ‘jobs’, things that are common place to us, are novel and adventurous to him. I especially liked the episodes were Richard visited Texas, once to become a Cattle Rancher, the other a Rodeo Clown. Richard’s wit and warmth will have you cheering for him in every episode.
