2.0 out of 5 stars Not recycling and not off-grid 9 Sep 2014
Format:DVD
If I could somehow remove the term 'off-grid' from Kevin's brain, I would.

Let's face it, this program isn't about recycling, nor being off-grid. It's about a bloke with a big wallet messing about making some pointless stuff. A focus group made up of some randomly selected clientele from a Westminster wine bar said it was great, so it must be, no?

The off-grid shower had an electric water pump. The off-grid scissor jack platform was surely charged from an extension lead from the camp site next door. The off-grid stick welding was powered by, urm...?

The scrap value of the items recycled was astronomical - how much copper is in an old immersion heater tank? (hint: lots) How much did that old phone box with loads of stainless steel cost? How much does a second hand, recently-reesprayed, fully-functional scissor lift (made from lots of mild steel) cost?

I could go on, but I think you get the gist.

If you can get your brain to filter out the terms 'off-grid' and 'recycling' and you go and make a cup of tea while Kevin does yet another to-camera heart-to-heart packed with hyperbole and... ... ...pauses, then this is vaguely entertaining telly.
