    Just a few months after that, it'll be on BBCA.

    I can agree with sentiment.

    Looks like some standard and welcome features, too. Big 'other continent' trip, train vs. car in Europe.. Not bad.

    One of the shows that makes the License fee worth it.

    Tonight's the night! 8pm - which clashes with the second half of the new Psych double-bill, so I guess I'll be recording that...

    And we have a new record time on the power lap. :p

    Still not bad considering how bad the circuit was.

    Still quite good fun.

    I've been souring on Top Gear for some time now, mostly because of Clarkson being such an asshole on and off the camera, but I have to admit, that Nile special was pretty fucking epic, I enjoyed it a lot.

    They're apparently filming an episode in New Zealand where they've requested the closing off of a large beach north of Auckland.

    I spoke to someone I know who works on the series and apparently everyone's pissed the news got out...

    I really enjoyed it. I think they've maybe pulled it back a little in the last couple of seasons, been a little less 'in your face' and 'smug'. It's made for a better show.

    I greatly enjoyed the Nile special, it was a proper epic adventure and they didn't overdo the scripted wackiness.

    Not much else in this series has stood out for me, though. The US road trip was decent I guess?

    Pretty much - nothing outstanding for me so far but the Nile special, though I really did enjoy the Damian Lewis lap. Solid but not thrilling.
