You can't really go wrong with any Top Gear presenter, can you? This is a great short series on the history of the un-celebrated heroes of the automotive past (and a few of the present.) James does a predictably great job at exploring these workhorses of societal expansion and progress. While it's not the most humorous thing any of the three jokers has ever done, it is entertaining, and a touch educational... So there's a brain bonus in there somewhere. I highly recommend it for anyone who thinks The Grand Tour and (pre-Joey) Top Gear would be lesser without Jame's dry wit and somewhat stuffy point of view.
I like to think of Jeremy, James, and Richard like computer operating systems. They are all great for some things, while a bit lacking for others. Jeremy is Mac, with his somewhat closed-minded nature when it comes to the numbers, facts, and proper ways to do things. Richard is Windows, with his polished appearance and approachable demeanor most people consider preferable. James is like Linux, with his finicky nature and nearly obsessive need to have everything "just so." This show very much lives in James' wheelhouse, and it shines.
