Wish they were starting with something more interesting than hot hatchbacks...

Oh well, I'm just glad they're back!

Re: New Top Gear

^You mean you can actually get parked in a supermarket car park. I thought the rule there was to take up two bays with your car.

Anyway not to bad.

Got a bit too ridiculous as time went on but Hammond's run through the supermarket (especially the ending of that) were hilarious.

Good episode. Sometimes I think you can tell when they truly have passion for a car - the P1 piece was so well put together.

Unfortunantly we'll have to wait a few weeks to see how fast it is.

Anyone know why the seasons keep getting smaller? Don't people in the UK watch anymore?

Re: New Top Gear

They've been doing 6-8 episodes a series since 2008. Series 10 was the last time they had 10 episodes to a series. Viewership has declined somewhat from the show's peak, too, but not catastrophically.

Though to be fair they do two of these 6 or 8 episode seasons a year.
