Re: New Top Gear Series.... How was the 1st one?

Seems that most of the time is now on the
big docu film segment.

They should spin that out as a stand alone
like the Arctic expedition.

Other than that I think they need to re-vamp.

As they suggested, 5th gear is just copying
all the good stuff they've done and it's all
got samey-samey.

Change is good.

Still worth watching though.

That's not much of a road trip for me.

It would look damn cool on the back of a tow truck though.

Re: New Top Gear Series.... How was the 1st one?

I forgot it was on

I switched over with 20 minutes to go and had a good laugh at Clarkson reference to the original Italian Job

Ms Emm didn't get the reference, even though I made her watch the film a few weeks ago.....

Yeah because he doesn't look like a spaniel

As for May and nakedness, you shouldn't have to see that... but it did make me laugh quite a lot!

I REALLY enjoyed the Lambo going through that tunnel. I thought it was an ok start, because they don't want to peak to soon with their best material do they?

Personally laughed like a drain at the childish 'pull off in the services' gag........

But then I am VERY immature and susceptible to double entendre

Re: New Top Gear Series.... How was the 1st one?

Not bad, a good beginning but I agree it is a big docu and some other stuff

BBC needs a 'back-to-basics' car show as well
