Trying too hard.
8 July 2018 | by kitellis-98121See all my reviews

James May once said that he, Richard Hammond, and Jeremy Clarkson were successful as a presenting team for lots of very complicated reasons that nobody understood. Perhaps, then, the makers of "Travels With My Father" should have tried a less Top-Gear like format of scripted/pre-planned "comedy" moments, because in the absence of the magical Clarkson-Hammond-May chemistry, this series feels desperately set-up, forced, and uncomfortable.

The awkwardness between Whitehall and Whitehall is perhaps the only thing that seems to be occurring naturally, but within this miasma of embarrassment and discomfort, the two squirming presenters are forced to bicker and bumble their way through a Top Gear-styled adventure, but without benefit of cars or Andy Wilman.

The result is a travelogue which could have been interesting, except that dozens of better men have taken us on more interesting adventures already, or entertaining, except that Clarkson, Hammond, and May have got that covered.

It's hard to know what this show is offering that is in any way fresh, illuminating, amusing, or noteworthy.

The concept seemed neat. It piqued my interest enough to start watching, but not enough to last to the end of episode one. I would have stayed with it if I'd felt that it was a genuine documentary following two interesting people through the ups and downs of an unlikely and ill-conceived journey. But it wasn't.

If only the comedy had occurred organically... If only the dialogue had been unscripted... If only everyone involved had been a little less desperate... Oh well.
