The second season just dropped. I just now saw the notice, so will watch the first episode tomorrow.

Cool. Now that I have my new TV I have more incentive to watch it, and catch up on Grand Tour.

Caught the first episode of season 2. It's just as good as season 1. He's got somebody else taking care of his sheep, and now he bought cows. Looks like fun times ahead.  :laugh:

I'm two episodes into the second season and am greatly enjoying myself.  Looking at some episode title and descriptions, I'm worried it's going to derail from the comedic farming educational to and endless foray into local politics and regulations... You know, like real life.   :police:

I think I mentioned during Season 1 that I couldn't for the life of me figure out how any farmers in the UK get anything done. You need a permit for everything all the way to fish farts.

I think season 2 might be better than season one. I laughed out loud at least a half dozen times during episode 2.

Season 3 is filming now.  There was concern that Amazon would be ending all projects with Mr. Clarkson after his column in The Sun regarding Meaghan Markle.

Awesome to hear. They can make crappy shows like Hell's Kitchen run like 15 seasons, so I hope we can get at least 5 out of Clarkson's Farm.

Based on this, I wonder if The Grand Tour will also continue?  It would make sense if season three of Clarkson's Farm is being shot now.

From some dialogue in S2E1, I'm getting the impression that season 2 was in the can over a year ago. This thread started not quite a year ago for Season 1. Do they release this in Europe first maybe?

Word is the took a while to exit this one.  I think they wanted to portray a particular viewpoint on the relationship between farmers and the UK government. Took it a bit to get just right.

Also this was the 2021 into 2022 season. I think the actual filming didn't end until mid summer/ early fall 2022. Then post production.
 
FWIW I totally agree. Season 2 was great, and made me laugh quite a bit.  The bit with the cows and the ratchet jack had me honestly worried and on the edge of my seat.

I would however be having Pepper Steak if I were in Jeremy's shoes. ;)

Yeah, I’d have offered the farmer a chance to trade for a fertile female so his kid could have her favorite back, but if not then Pepper steak it is.

Watched the Covid episode last night.

Wow did that bring back some memories. Empty streets, empty interstates, panic buying at stores, whole 9 yards.

Kaleb: Was you in a band?

New guy that's annoying Kaleb: I was in a band.

Kaleb: I can tell.

New guy: Because?

Kaleb: Because you left the tractor running at a pound/liter.

Finished season one.

I just about fell off my chair when Clarksons says "I could go back to London."

And Kaleb breaks in and says "Yeah, do that! Just do that!"

There was a very interesting moment, though, earlier in the show when the weather was still being a big problem, the sheep were being a big problem, just everything was being a big problem, and Clarkson says as an aside "I don't think I've ever been this happy."

His partner brought that up again at the end of the last show, and it was all part of that "I could go back to London."

Thought it was very interesting.

We started watching Season 3 last night.  Got through a couple episodes.  I still really enjoy this show.

I did turn to Mrs. Mush most of the way through Episode 1 and say "If I were Clarkson I'd hire a couple lawyers whose only job is to sue the council and mire them in paperwork when they try to do ANYTHING.  Good, bad, whatever.  Just make everything impossible"

While recognizing that this is a semi-scripted TV show, I think they covered something like that in Season 2, but the attorney fees were even too much for mega-rich Jeremy.

I don't know how anyone gets anything done in the UK. The town council is the face of it, but all the farming rules from the UK government are just brutal.

One of the things I really like about this show is how it manages to be entertaining, but also shines a stark light on just how *expletive deleted*it upon the people that make our food really are.  I can't imagine the US is much better.

I'm only a half assed farmer, but have firsthand knowledge between farming in Idaho and farming in Calif (via the guy my parents leased to). On the fed level, it's really not that bad. Yet. I've dealt with USDA/NRCS in Idaho and they have been super friendly and helpful. Deep state progressives certainly want to change that, especially at the White House level and agencies like the EPA. We've all seen the EPA lawsuits of six figures per day against farming families because rain created a pond/watershed/wetland and suddenly it became a "federal waterway".

California was getting ridiculous before I moved. One of the reasons my parents' renter paid so much per acre to rent their land and grow corn and wheat, besides feeding his cows (he owned a big dairy) was that it was the only way he could keep from going broke removing manure from his dairy. CA declared it a hazardous material, so if you hauled it off, it had to go to Nevada and it cost a fortune to both transport and dump it. There was still a loophole that if you spread it on your land as fertilizer, that was okay. So dairy guys ended up leasing land more to have a place for their manure than to grow crops.

Here in Idaho, my dealings with the state have pretty much boiled down to, "What are you even calling us for? Do whatever you want. What do we care?". That's kind of been changing though, even in just the 5.5 years I've been here, because of the quickly increasing population.

I did a land split last year that took most of the year, and almost every time I went to the county building for paperwork I saw a new sign on the wall about a new regulation. Stuff like "Engineered drawings now required for agricultural outbuildings" (you used to be able to just put up the building as long as it was a barn or for equipment storage or whatever) or "permits now required for woodstoves".
