There are certainly plenty of people exactly like what you described....
The other aspect is that we the audience/people usually complain that stars/athletes/politicians get away with things that most of us would be thrown in jail for; yet once in a while when justice is served, we find all sorts of excuses for their behaviors. I find that interesting.
Not only can HBO or Netfix basically allow anything they want, they would know exactly what they are getting themselves into which probably means pushing the envelope even farther. I think that could be incredible.My prediction is Hammond and May will not continue doing Top Gear now that Clarkson is gone. :shrug:
Maybe those three will move onto a different channel. Netflix, HBO maybe? -eek-
Top Gear generates some $225 million in revenue for the broadcaster’s commercial arm, BBC Worldwide.He punched someone repeatedly for ~30 seconds, unprovoked and then reported the incident himself. And admitted it was unprovoked. The BBC is publicly funded, they don't really lose anything. Syndication and merchandising sales, I guess.
You don't punch someone in the face at work and expect to keep your job.
