James May = Fun Show and Happy Hubby
Verified purchase
This kept my gadget loving husband entertained and chuckling for awhile. He loves the guys from Top Gear/ Grand Tour and I've sought out and collected their individual shows for him. I ended up ordering the other two seasons from the Amazon UK site but was happy to find this on the US site. With a region free dvd player he's set for some serious armchair entertainmentl!

Selected wrong selection with remote. No way to reverse order.
Have this free with Prime. Why is there even a selection to pay for it?

Did you see this show recommended because you like Top Gear? Man Lab will make you fall in love with James May and his brilliant lab mate, Simi. Clever and fun science experiments and life hacks that are delightful to watch. James will overtake Jeremy and Richard as your favorite Top Gear/ Grand Tour star.
