    I've been revisiting all of Top Gear recently.

    I've always really liked James May, and after having rewatched series one, I like him even more. Jason Dawe wasn't horrible by any means, but didn't seem to have ANY chemistry with the Clarkson and Hammond. His interaction with them was so bland that even his off-the-cuff statements sounded somehow flat and scripted.

    May, on the other hand, seemed a perfect fit from his very first episode.

    Plus, May is currently building a full-sized house out of LEGO Blocks. I just can't see Jason ever doing something so amazing and fun.

    Yeah, the first season was a bit different. Boring third presenter that they got rid of quick smart...barely any people in the studio to begin with....Stig in black being referred to as "it"....

    :D

    So, is there going to be another series or is Top Gear finished?

    If they do quit, I'd like them to end on a (huge) bang, but any real ending would be better than none for me.

    There's another series, filming now I believe. I'd be surprised if it ended soon,and if it did I'm sure they'd try and bring it back for specials.

    Top Gear is apparently going HD from the new series.

    I eagerly await more jokes about Hammond's whitened teeth and another Jeremy eating hair type stunt.

    But seriously, the show's cinematography plus HD = pure TV bliss.
