    Wish they were starting with something more interesting than hot hatchbacks...

    Oh well, I'm just glad they're back!

    I've always wanted to do that in a supermarket. while the assholes who park their trolleys across the aisles were still in it.

    ^You mean you can actually get parked in a supermarket car park. I thought the rule there was to take up two bays with your car. :p

    Anyway not to bad.

    Got a bit too ridiculous as time went on but Hammond's run through the supermarket (especially the ending of that) were hilarious.

    Good episode. Sometimes I think you can tell when they truly have passion for a car - the P1 piece was so well put together.

    Unfortunantly we'll have to wait a few weeks to see how fast it is.

    Yeah I'm really looking forward to the P1 vs. 918 showdown. :D

    Anyone know why the seasons keep getting smaller? Don't people in the UK watch anymore?

    They've been doing 6-8 episodes a series since 2008. Series 10 was the last time they had 10 episodes to a series. Viewership has declined somewhat from the show's peak, too, but not catastrophically.

    Though to be fair they do two of these 6 or 8 episode seasons a year.

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

    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.

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