I stumbled across this QotD over at Quora.com under the question "What is so special about Top Gear that it has 385 million viewers worldwide?"
The secret is that Top Gear is not about cars. It's about joy. About unabashedly, unashamedly enjoying life.Abso-fricken-lutely.
It also presents a positive image of masculinity, which is something that is entirely missing from everything else on television.-- Rúnar Óli Bjarnason
