Re: New Top Gear

Looking at Netflix it looks like they have two seasons a year up until about 2011, then they start to get dragged out.

Anyone know why the seasons keep getting smaller? Don't people in the UK watch anymore?
Also 6 episodes is fairly common for a season in the UK. As they can be as low as 3 (Sherlock) or 13+1 (DW)

I think the Olympics was the cause of there not being much Top Gear throughout 2012. Something to do with production staff being utilized for that.

Exactly. Then there were two series as usual in 2013.

Re: New Top Gear

The show yesterday was a bit lame. Jeremy and James were looking really old.

The cycling thing was as unfunny as could have been expected from Top Gear, but the rest of the show was just fine imo.

And next week sounds like fun.

I liked this week's ep. And while it seems most people prefer the McLaren P1, I totally love the Porsche 918... that thing is just amazing.

TG always does short seasons, that's nothing new.

the length of Top Gear seasons aren't short by UK standards.

I swear the seasons feel shorter each year. This year felt like 4 episodes and the "Christmas" Special.

Re: New Top Gear

I suspect that's because you were enjoying the episodes, so they seemed to fly past.
