I wasn't aware that plug in Prius were available in this country yet? They seem to spend the first 5 minutes discussing the merits of economy 7 for charging the car!

In one of the videos, Robert talks about how he owned a Gen 2 and the nice people from Toyota gave him a Gen 3 to use, so I presume it will be one of the fleet of journo cars

Kingo :thumbsup:

EDIT In this video, 7.20 in, he talks about why he uses a Prius

I suspect that Clarkie wouldn't be seen dead in a Prius, and if his comments last time are anything to go by, would we actually want him in one - dead or alive! :yawn:

Oh why did Quentin Wilson keep hanging on to the grab handle!

I find it very irritating.......did he not feel safe in the Prius?

No not Clerky but you never know who he has lined up. The new TV series starts on the "Dave" channell sometime in October. Some of the people interviewed so far:

The lucious Lisa Rogers (Please no jokes about rogering :lol: )

Adam Henson (TV Farmer on countryfile)

Phil Jupitus

Paul Daniels

John lloyd (TV Comedy producer)

Sir Patrick Stewart

D1ck Strawbridge, big moustache man, had a job to bypass the swear filter!

Ade Edmonson

and the list goes on

I find the ramblings of two people in a car quite entertaining, especially some of those we have heard very little of, it's just something a little different and Robert has a nice easy style about him

Kingo :thumbsup:

Hardly a list of A listers is it? lol

Not sure what the merits of the above are for the Prius? "Drive a Prius and you too could be just like Paul Daniels!" :help:

No not a list of A listers agreed, but I like that in a strange sort of way, some you have never heard of have been very chatty and witty too.

He likes the Prius, he likes the fuel savings he gets, he owned a Gen 2 and Toyota agreed to supply him a Gen 3 for the TV series, it is a talking point with the passengers all the same

Kingo :thumbsup:

I watched two episodes last night, Quentin Wilson and Emma Kennedy, I've no idea who Emma was, but she was a great chatterbox. It is a curious show, I wouldn't have thought I would like it, I watched the two episodes all the way through, so something must have kept me watching?

Yeah, it is strangely engaging; I had it squashed up in the corner of my screen while I was working :)

Yep it is a quirky show, Ive had a few episodes running on the PC whilst working, I like the format, if you had A listers on it, it wouldnt be half as entertaining. Seeing Lisa Rogers on it inspired me to Google her :eek: glad I did :lol: :lol: she has an entertaining portfolio of gentlemans photographs ;)
