"Clarkson, you infantile pillock!"

This episode was up there with their previous foreign epics (the Deep South, Botswana, the Polar Special, Japan) - and we've still got the Vietnam trip to come. Also, Jeremy getting cautioned by the police two times in as many days and James ending up in the weeds on a perfectly straight road were great moments.

Re: Top Gear New Series

The Daily mail is moaning about TG again.
They are upset by him sticking 2 fingers up at the cop.
the link stopped working about the same time all the TG fans started leaving comments supporting Clarkson. lol

Again?
I didn't know the Daily Fail doesn't like Top Gear, but it makes me like the show even more.

It's not they don't like Top Gear so much as they don't like the BBC, and want to protect "hard working people" from the "Filth" on there.

Re: Top Gear New Series

Wonder what they will moan about next week.
Surprise they only pick on Clarkson James can be a naughty boy sometimes epically when he talks about the French or the VW beetle

It's more properly referred to as The Hate Mail...

Because then he's slagging off the French and the Germans, and the Daily Mail love that. It must cause them quite the (tiny) brainstorm to have two contradictory opinions of that sort: "Must... attack... BBC! BBC bad! But BBC... insulting... Johnny Foreigner! Insulting foreigners good! ERROR! ERROR!"

Maybe this is TG plain to kill the DM

When the report was still up the person who wrote it did not put there name to it it just said daily mail reporter.
lol Its must be bad when your own staff don't want to admit writing for you.
Greeks Londoners want Clarkson sacking now.

Re: Top Gear New Series

Last weeks episode was hilarious with the lorrys. Me and and my brother were luahging so hard we cried when Clarkson pulled with his trailer on fire

And while that was a lot of fun I actually enjoyed this sundays episode more because I love each and every one of the cars they drove and I love the US and I love V8s. I'd totally buy the ZR1 if I had the money, but the Challenger easily sounded the best. Motorroar heaven. And I loved their attempts to avoid to get busted by the US State Deparmtment regarding their visas

As always looking forward to next episode.

^ IMO the Challenger also looks better then the Caddy and the ZR1. Too bad it's not as good to drive though.

Re: Top Gear New Series

Darn it, why didn't they send a newsletter saying the series was starting again.

What's the point of signing up to the site if they don't let you know when a new series is starting.

Oh yes, but the other are very pretty as well. The Challengers big pluses are, looks, sound and coupe with enough space for five people. The minus are reliability, mileage, handling and a boring interior. I'll probably buy one if I have a lot of money to spare some time, but not before I buy a new Camaro SS, current Mustang GT and a 68 Charger R/T.

Re: Top Gear New Series

I thought it was fun last night, tweaking the Aventime and Mark Wahlberg were both a laugh too.

I though Mika Hakkinen was great - he has a nice, dry sense of humour.

And as for the V8 food blender....blimey....
