1991 was 20 years ago

I mentioned before I was really enjoying Top Gear. I’d say they jumped the shark around 2007-08. I haven’t watched the most recent season, but I just finished the one before that and unfortunately it was low on content and leaned heavily on over-mortgaged personalities. And so it was amusing to take a look at how things were back in 1989. Was TV really that … um, <em>bad</em>? It doesn’t feel that long ago.

Here’s Clarkeson dressed like Tears for Fears.

  1. I loved it when it was once each week on SBS, but when it became so popular that Packer9 rammed it down our throats every night merely to promote the poisonous Australian version, it was all rooned.
    I do enjoy Jeremy’s Motoring columns though, and 20 years ago my weight was significantly less than at present, never mind his fooffy hair.
