Clarkson’s Farm – A review

First episode was good and funny. But, from the second everything just came tumbling down. Boring. I finished it just because I was initially isolated with Covid. Under normal circumstances I would not even have started with the 3rd episode.

I think you’re in the minority, if memory serves me right it’s the most popular program ever on Amazon and had a record appreciation score on IMDB.

Agreed, it was just how I saw this.
 

‘It’s shortsighted’: farmers lament veto of Jeremy Clarkson restaurant - The Guardian​

Cotswolds food producers argue case illustrates disconnect between planners and farmers’ need to make living

He left the meeting in a right old huff, chuntering that it was a bad day for farming and dismissing one of the planning officials as a comedian, after his scheme to build a hilltop restaurant on his Oxfordshire farm was flatly turned down.

But Jeremy Clarkson, petrolhead turned farming reality TV show star, may be heartened by the concern and interest in his case that rippled through the Cotswolds this week.

Fellow farmers, other food producers and local residents, even some who really don’t like Clarkson’s take-no-prisoners style, argued that the case illustrated a disconnect between planners and the needs of modern farmers to find new, imaginative ways of making a living.

“It’s a real shame,” said Pete Ledbury, who farms with his wife, Emma, at the North Cotswolds Dairy just a few miles from Clarkson’s Diddly Squat farm.

“We know that we have to diversify to make a living and create more jobs for the countryside. Turning down projects like this doesn’t help. I think it’s pretty short-sighted of the planners.”

 
Just started watching this.

Apart from being entertaining it's very educational - but 4 episodes in I still haven't understood a single thing Gerald has ever said.

It's not the accent, his sentences just don't seem to have any form! Quite a character, as is Kaleb.
