Some genuine laugh-out loud moments but agreed that it felt overly long. The same scripted jokes were stretched a bit too thin again. Lovely Tuscan countryside went a long way to making up for that though!

You can get a refund in heaven. Lee is something of an acquired taste.

I watched it all waiting for a funny bit- he just seems very bitter with a nasty edge or is that his style?

Humour is very subjective- Frankie Boyle, another comic I can't stand. Though I'm sure there are many who hate those that I find funny.

It's actually not the bitterness, it's the structural irony. Have a go at this one, which is off topic, but also very funny (IMO):

That made me laugh but then I'd rather like to see Richard Hammond decapitated.

I just watched 44 minutes of driving in the desert and was very surprised to find there's another episode of more driving in the desert. Oh dear, oh dear, 44 minutes of driving in the snow to fetch a curry was more exciting.

After watching the first half of the Namibian sand buggy special...perhaps they could lose the tent actually? Excellent film stuff.
