He looks like the Irish Uncle with a heart of gold. He's behind the times, rough round the edges, loves life, his family, his cattle and you, hugs like a bear, drinks like a fish, talks the hind legs off a donkey and punched that guy in the gob who slagged off your gay partner

What a great description.

You guys are mixing up Entertainment and Fandom tabs on purpose, aren't you?

He was a real treat during the reunion. No facade; just thrilled to be there, trading war stories and fart jokes.

He's more used to that kind of banter. I liked him a lot more than I expected to with Top Gear.

I hope he can come back as a guest now that the new group is hitting their stride. Matt got stuck in the transition series but was a stronger part of the show along with Sabine when she was on.

He and Chris Harris were a fun duo to watch. Classic comic relief to Harris's straight-man.

the reunion show was pretty meh
for all the fanfare i thought they were going to do a script or something

instead you just got to see how bad aniston and cox's plastic surgery was
and how normal the other 4 looked because they didn't spend 10 years being objectified

I hated the fake 'moments' that were possibly unscripted but certainly planned and directed.  "Oh look, I'm just arriving but my hair and makeup is done, I've been mic'd, and I'm entering with perfect timing after the previous person".  Blah.

And then there's Maggie Wheeler and a few others - I'd actually have loved some of the recurring part actors to have sat down and stayed.  I'm sure the Big Six have told every anecdote a bajillion times already, but the others put in enough screen time to be interesting and with a free-for-all format there could have been some fun conversation, at least after it was edited down.

Cox's plastic surgery was definitely scary.  Perry's addiction issues hadn't taken quite as big a toll on him as I would have thought, and with Anniston I was kind of surprised.  She's getting the little piggy eyes you see with plastic surgery freaks, but I didn't see the stretched skin, oversized lips and cheeks etc. that you often do.  She kind of looked her age.  I've been watching Leblanc in Episodes and Man with a Plan, so his appearance wasn't a surprise to me.  I thought while she looked older, Kudrow was looking better (adjusted for age) than when she was younger.  She's ageing gracefully or has an incredibly talented surgeon.  Schwimmer just looked normally older.

Leblanc seemed the most genuine, with Anniston in 2nd place.  Schwimmer was fun to listen to at times because you could here the director in him coming through.  I could have done without the Smelly Cat bit.  It was already done, and better, on the show.  You don't put Stefani Germanotta and a guitar on stage to play a mediocre performance of a joke song.  It's a crime against show business.  If they'd done it as an intermission bit without Kudrow and just let Gaga go-go with it, that'd have been better.

Just when you thought he was playing a 2D 'Joey' variant, he brought down the 'professional actor who knows his shiat' hammer.  And then the 'troubled spouse who is a bit of a spoiled jerk, possible sex addict' bit.

He walked the line between giving the fans the comedy performance they thought they wanted and then topping it off with some decent drama.  Of course, a lot of the credit goes to the writers, but Leblanc still had to carry that across the finish line, and he did.

He was good on Top Gear as well even if those seasons were dire. He's the only one out of that cast that looks at all fun to hang out with.

Anniston's my hall pass, but slightly more realistically I'd rather hang out with Leblanc and listen to him talk about the business for a few hours.  As a non-actor, I think that'd be a fascinating time.

You need to set your sights higher. A bunch of people have boned ONE friend. That leaves at least 2 and maybe 5 more.

Of all the cast members, LeBlanc definitely is the one who needs to lay off the sandwiches. I don't remember him being that big in Top Gear.

Perry looked like he just woke up in a Tijuana whore's bed and they flew him in on the red-eye to make the special.
