The only problem with that is, at this point, they'd probably do it with TGUSA.

Fabulous episode! Each had his own film and they were all entertaining. I just wish I knew who the star was.
It was John Bishop, He's a comedian from Liverpool. He's quite funny. He's a vid;

If your from Britian I am surprised you didn't see his DVD advert on TV over Christmas. It was played loads.

He used to appear on Irish (and Northern Irish) panel shows a fair bit a few years ago because he hadn't cracked the British mainstream yet and it was the only way he'd get on TV. I rarely watch TV these days so I don't know if he still does it, but I imagine not.

As for Top Gear, it was a good episode, but I also wish that Stig 3.0 had been a different colour. Perhaps pink.

I loved the Yeti review, especially since my dad is seriously considering getting one

It looks like a nice car, even though I doubt it's usefulness as an offroad tattoo studio.

The other thing I like about the Yeti, especially when you compare it to other cars of the same class, is that it actually has some character. From the awesome name, to those big round lights.

Re: Top Gear New Series

Well like pretty much the entire Skoda lineup, it's great value for money. And for dad it's just what he needs right now for a work car with high ride, lots of space and yet not too huge for the roads where he work, and a bit tough to not wear down quickly. Plus a Skoda works really great for the image in our company. A lot of other 4WD cars wont work, and a pickup is out of the question for several reasons.

Talking about Skoda though, I way too in love with the current Superb

Re: John Bishop... He seemed to become popular last year, so if you don't want the stand up shows or a lot of the comedy panel stuff it's easy to have missed him. Though he has had a show on BBC One recently.

My only question is does Sienna Miller come standard, or is she an option?

Also, regarding Top Gear and Mythbusters, I have thought many, many times that Jamie Hyneman and James May would get along extremely well.

Yeah Škoda does have a pretty good line-up at the moment. I really like the Octavia RS myself.

Indeed. I'm thinking of one of those for my next

^ Yeah it's definitely on my short list. So is the Alfa Romeo 159 or a used Audi A5.

Re: Top Gear New Series

They have a Fabia RS at the local dealer. I love the green color on it, and 180 bhp in a 1100 kg car is not too bad. And it's pretty practical.
