Funny, that's exactly how I feel reading that - are you insane? Pretty much everyone who watches the programme says that the banter between the presenters is one of the main reasons they watch it.
It's like I'm listening to someone in a parallel universe. They have one of the most unnatural and forced on screen dynamics I have ever seen. It's painful.
JC, JM and RH bounce off eachother so well sometimes it can seem like there is no script at all.
It used to be funny, now it's really forced.
Clarkson: Ha ha, James, why on earth did you think putting a Lotus engine in a toaster was going to beat my Enzo? You're so posh and lame.
James: I'm suprised you can fit into an Enzo as you're so tall.
Clarkson: Yeah, well at least I'm not short like Hammond.
Hammond: I'm not short, you're just too tall and you're posh.
(All laugh like the end of He-Man)
