To keep on thinking of Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman when I should be working?

Did anyone see Long Way Round last night?

I think of them from time to time. But never fondly. I think of them acting out their mid-life crisis on big bikes and expecting us to be interested.

Like I said, not fondly.

Also didn't see the programme. So really, not at all fond.

Ewan - lush smile
Charley - an arse with a hugely inflated ego.

I love the programme though smile

I really enjoyed the first series but found them increasingly irritating in the second - Ewan seemed to have got very luvvie-ish and Charley just did that googly-eyed thing a lot and lit his farts. They were going to all these mind-blowing places and the best they could come up with was "wow!" or "Oh My God!" The first series I kept thinking how hard it must be for their wives to have them away for so long - the second series I rather suspected the wives had encouraged them to go again grin

grin Soren

I have only ever seen last night's episode. Clearly have treats in store, must watch all the others

Yes, the 'wow' thing is painful. As was the Christmas book. Also, why would I be interested in what either of these people think about a place? Why would I send them somewhere I can't go and have them report back? They aren't insightful or clever or even funny.

Stop thinking about them now.

YA still BU smile

insightful, clever, funny - whaddo I care, they are gorgeous and on big motorbikes


I am afraid I have come on an AIBU thread completely unwilling to be told IABU grin

Agree with you Soren. I have tried to watch it two or three times, but found them both really irritating, and patronising in the extreme.

Boring commentary, and couldn't believe when they thought it their right to be let into a country (it's noone's right to be let into any country).

Had to turn it off in the end.

My first ever crush was on Charley Boorman in the Emerald Forest, he was beautiful! I see him now and think OMG!
