This year's Holiday special was a dud. And that bit at the end was just weird and really threw the whole thing off.
That they metioned early on in the show about the falklands war and heading toward the Belgrano's home town was for me anway, proof, if it were needed, that the licence plate was not a coincidence.

And i also noted that said front licence plate was doing magic, one minute it was on the car, next it was gone, throught the whole show.

But yeah, i feel the whole show was somewhat of a damp squid that backfired on them towards the end, which i suspect would have had Clarkson pointing out how he had driven through Argentina with said licence plate and thus was another win for Great Brition, when of course the opposite happened, when they slinked out in the dark with their tails between their legs. lol

Ten episodes!

Where has Jezza's bald patch gone? Has he been having plug implants? It was still there in the summer while filming in St Petersburg, but gone by the studio recording last Wednesday...

Top Gear is really crushing on the Winter Soldier soundtrack this series. Can't say I blame em.

Re: New Top Gear

They've also made a lot of changes in the editing style. It's way more flashy and summer blockbuster-like than it used to be. Over all, I've been down on the show this series. I thought the Australia trip was a bore, and the whole ambulance thing was one of their biggest duds ever. But last night's Peugeot bit was the best segment they've done in years. I haven't laughed so hard in a really long time.
