TV REVIEW | James May: Our Man in Japan (Season 1)

Image result for james may our man in japanI have a love / hate relationship with Top Gear and The Grand Tour, but one thing I’ve consistently liked from it is James May. I’ve watched and enjoyed a few of his solo programs and thought they were pretty good too, so seeing a new show on Amazon called James May: Our Man in Japan, my interest was piqued.

The series follows May over 6 episodes as he travels down Japan from north to south. In each of the episodes, which are around 50mins each, he goes to a number of locations on each island and gets involved in the culture and food.

May does his sarcastic curiousness schtick well, and he honestly seemed out of his comfort zone at times, but pressed on with a view to learning about his subject matter. This all leads to some very funny fish out of water moments, like being naked in a mountaintop hot spring with a monk. His attempts to speak Japanese, while hilarious, are genuine, and it looked to me that he really wanted to get things right. He gets involved in all the things thrown at him, not always willingly, but he does them and always has a funny quip ready afterward.

A lot of the places he goes to are not the usual places you see on Japan travel shows so for me it was good to see these being shown. He has various companions from time to time at the various spots, and each of them add to what is a real fun show.

As I said, the premise was that he travels north to south and he has now done that, but I hope they make more of these. There’s plenty of other places to explore in Japan, and the framework could easily be applied to other countries too. It’s the kind of TV you can watch while you’re waiting for new seasons of your favourite shows to come out, but also perfect for rainy weekend viewing.
