I was going to write today, what I did not write yesterday. But I was distracted again. I came back from grocery shopping earlier today, only to squander the rest of the day watching a series of documentaries on Youtube (in between making lunch, taking a dump, taking a shower, and making dinner). I realized that I have another episode and a half to go, so I don’t think I will be writing it today either. So, like yesterday, I am going to share with you the videos that distracted me.
The documentary series in question is [Piers Morgan On…]. As the title implies, the host of this show is none other than the famous British television presenter Piers Morgan. I think there are quite a lot of British TV personalities that are very famous in the world nowadays, with their douche-bag straightforward comments in a gentlemanly accent. Piers Morgan and TopGear’s Jeremy Clarkson are my favorites.
I know, not many people likes these two old farts. But for those people, I think it is just because you guys cannot appreciate British humor, and you cannot understand that they are TV personalities so they have to behave like how they do in front of TV to boost viewership.
Anyway, back to the show. [Piers Morgan On…] is a series of travelogue focusing on the perspective of the rich and luxurious lifestyle. There are a total of six episodes, and in each episodes, Piers travel to one location and find out why the rich and famous go there. The locations are: Dubai, Monte Carlo, Hollywood, Las Vegas, Marbella, Shanghai.
Of course, as with all British TV shows, the information provided has to be taken with a pinch of salt. British shows are meant to be partially factual and partially entertaining, and I believe this series is no different.
This series is by no means funny or exciting. I am watching this mostly to see how Piers talks, and how he interacts with various rich and famous British people in each of those locations. And it is quite interesting to get a peek into the luxurious houses, big boats and fast cars.
I’m sharing all six videos here. They are in the order of how I watch it, not which episode comes first on TV. I don’t expect any of you to watch it, but in case you are interested, then the videos are there for the clicking. Mind you, each episode is 45 minutes long.
I like how in each episode, the show presents all the fun and glamour in the first half, and then shifts to the problems each city is facing, and finally highlights the things done to secure the city’s future.
I am currently halfway through Marbella, and I am going to finish up with Hollywood before I go to sleep tonight. Hopefully tomorrow I can function normally again without anymore distractions…
