As far as entertainment goes it is quite difficult to beat Top Gear and its three hosts. Of the three, James May as always been, to my eyes, the most knowledgeable, truthful character, capable of conveying an interesting message, without resorting to the need of portraying a false persona, but simply being himself. In his last programme - Man Lab - James starts off with what I consider his best idea to date. However, I felt that although this was clearly a programme dear to him, he chose a crew that failed to show dedication to the goal of the programme. Somehow I felt that some looked at this as a task and not as an interesting opportunity to create good television. In a nutshell, my favourite TV Show from James May will continue to be Toy Stories (near perfect TV entertainment combined with a strong message), but I do hope BBC invests in a 2nd series of Man Lab, because the idea is there, ready to flourish. It just needs a better execution.
