Ahhh, I get it now. Thanks.

It may be rubbish, but because its British it just seems a lot more clever than something we'd come up with here in the states.
Well you'll be getting your own version later this year, on NBC.

Man that was a brilliant ep. I'm really glad the guys are back.

Oh yeah, that thing they showed on their telly was probably a photo some kid took of Jeremy while he was on vacation.

I'm so pleased to see the lads back. So, Stig's given up binge drinking now it's up to £1.18 a litre. Poor Stig!

Re: Top Gear New Series

The Fantastic (or maybe Rubbish) Top Gear Stunt Man is a nice addition to the team.

I thought that was the worst segment of the show. It felt tacked on, and much like they couldn't think of a good stunt to do.

Hopefully Top Gear Stuntman gets "killed" like Black Stig did.

^ Yeah, it wasn't a fan of the stunt segment either. It felt like something done on Fifth Gear.

Wasn't the best segment, but at least now they can do even more stupid stuff.

May: There goes a member of the criminal classes. And Jeremy took another swing at the Prius, after the review he did a few years ago.

Even with out the footie that good for bbc2.
i think the highest rated show on bbc2 was a red dwarf ep at 9m but i could be wrong.
I wonder if bbc 1 will try to steel it.

^Typical Clarkson tactic though... Hasn't he done similar things in the past?

A bit disappointing after last weeks, could have done with less car reviews, and more top gear brand lunacy.
