One thought to “Overdone”

  1. James May’s inclusion in Top Gear’s second season is what, in my view, saved the series from Richard and Jeremy’s testosterone fueled school yard humour. I believe he once told those two that they weren’t real men because Jeremy doesn’t drink brown beer and Richard sticks his head in a bucket of hair product each morning
