Can lead to awkward questions

The quality of the shows is variable, with some interesting to a younger audience while others appeal more exclusively to an adult market. The 'specials' tend to make better family viewing, and while they're primarily focused on humour and jeopardy, they can also be quite informative. There's a little bit of violence, or threats of violence between the hosts, and moderate swearing throughout, although nothing a 10+ year-old won't have heard before. There is some sexual innuendo and references to things like drug taking, but as with most stuff like this, it will go over the head of a child. The worst thing you're likely to encounter are awkward questions prompted by what's been said.

The greatest tv show ever made, full stop.

The worlds 3 greatest presenters in one unforgettable tv show travailing the world's continents in incredible and terrible cars. No violence and the only swearing is sh*t. Brilliant.
