Clarkson’s Farm has been huge, and it’s only just been two weeks since it was released on Amazon Prime Video. Jeremy Clarkson has already spoken out on how blown away he’s been after such a positive response from fans, but there’s one website who’s pounced on the show.
The Guardian was the only website who reviewed the show negatively. In fact, I haven’t seen another negative review on Clarkson’s Farm, with all other sites singing its praises to the sky. But with The Guardian giving it only one star, we start to question why.
Jeremy Clarkson’s Response
The presenter, known for calling out anyone or anything he fancies during his career on The Grand Tour and previously Top Gear, responded to this poor review.
“GREAT news – my new farming show has received a one-star review from the Guardian,” he writes.
“This means you’ll almost certainly enjoy it!”
The review, which called the show “wearisome, meretricious rubbish” and its presenter an ignorant buffoon, has come under fire from fans who question the reasons behind the article.
It’s no surprise that almost all suspect it’s to cause a commotion, and therefore, draw in more clicks than a positive review. It’s a form of clickbait, drawing you in when you wonder how someone could have such a wrong idea. But with even Clarkson calling it out, it’s kind of worked…
Fortunately, the rest of the online arena surrounding Clarkson’s Farm was incredibly positive, with many loving not only Clarkson and his humour, but the friends and colleagues that featured along the way such as Kaleb Cooper and Charlie Ireland.
Silly question… but what did you think? Fancy a second season?
