Most of us probably know about the Top Gear Christmas special filmed in Argentina. Of course, that episode got drowned out by the controversy over the number plate one of the presenters had on the car.
As a casual Top Gear watcher I recently re-watched the episode. What struck me, aside form it being a medicore special, is that none of the presenters seemed to love Argentina. All the other countries they visit on specials (including Bolivia) they are often amazed and stress just how beautiful the country/people are.
There we far fewer instances of this in the Argentina special, and they even had a dig at Bariloche. Has anybody else seen it and noticed this? I am not talking about the voice over narration as that could be biased after what happened to them, but instead the parts where they are in Argentina. All three look like they would rather be anywhere else.
I find this odd because for all the failings of this country, it is spectaculalry beautiful.
