Re: Top Gear New Series

I love the specials. My fav is probably the North Pole trip, with crossing Africa a close second (mainly due to Hammond's "relationship" with his car "Oliver"). I take it this year's special is the Vietnam trip?

Re: Top Gear New Series

If you missed it can't you watch it on i player.
I thought i would find this one boring but enjoyed it apart from Tom Jones i think it needs to be moved to 9pm because they can get away with a bit more.

Re: Top Gear New Series

That was surprisingly educational for new Top Gear, and still every bit as good as the rest of this season. Minus the crashing, the homage to BTCC and the FCX feature could have been old Top Gear segments. They even managed to make Top Gear Stuntman watchable.

I anxiously await Clarkson's home improvement show with Will Young.

That was brilliant! The Marina, the pork sword, the lot...

The hydrogen-based car was interesting - I wonder if Bush'll have it quietly destroyed in his last couple of weeks, just to be on the safe side for his mates' companies!

Re: Top Gear New Series

Wonder if the repeat of it next Sunday at 8pm will be re edited for that time slot?

Re: Top Gear New Series

Good episode. I expected big things when Hammond announced it was time for vengeance on Fifth Gear but never mind - they tried! This year's Christmas was better than last year's too - a magician's sleeve and a pork sword you have to wonder who writes some of that stuff sometimes.

Scarily educational too.

I agree on it being surprising educational but without losing the TG sense of humour. Also recommend this for funniest moment of the year http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=aUphisrgWQo

Re: Top Gear New Series

Anyone watch this last night.
I do not think it was the best special they did it should have been a 2 hours long from what i have been reading but still enjoyed it.
Felt sorry for Jeremy when he fell off.

Clarkson was a bit too much of a jerk this time imo, painting Hammond's nice Minsk pink after already crushing his helmet, buying him a pink one and that ridiculous "miniature" boat was just mean.

Someone reading Viz in the production office.


Vietnam special was awesome. That is all.
