I thought this was the best "new" one to date.

So OK it does still lack a bit of originality & can feel a bit to "rehearsed" but the actual 60 minutes of TV was enjoyable and better than the ITV, CH4 & CH5 offerings etc.

ps. that new Range Rover thing was loverly......

I've given it a go but it's just so obviously scripted / staged :sad: I know the original was as well but at least that 3 had a bit of chemistry. That said I thought the original was getting a bit tired before JC got sacked. Should've just left it there IMO.

That's the whole point of having her on. She is playing up to the German stereotype. "Schnell, schnell. Ve haf vays of making you drive faster."

I quite like her. I still remember her taking that transit van round the 'ring and carving cars up with it.

Plato is tainted because he was in a rival show. I don't mind Rory. He's a bit green in front of studio camera, but he'll get there.

I can't stand Chris Harris. He tries to be the clown, but just comes across as a bit of a spanner. Plus, he pulls stupid faces at the wrong times. He's like that annoying wally kid that tries to be in the cool kids gang but just ends up being a hanger on who will eat dog s!$% if you tell him your sister will show him her tits if he does it.

I was never what you'd call a mega-fan of the original. I'd watch it and find it fairly amusing/interesting most of the time with a few memorable moments,( like the Reliant Space Shuttle which was brilliant), and I feel much the same about the new series. I like Matt Le-Blanc more than I thought I would and don't have any particular issue with the others.

Let's face it, the only one with any charisma is LeBlanc - the rest are hangers on. The old team were trying to play to younger generations and now this lot are well and truly courting the young urbanites and hipsters. Attempting to be cool, hip and funny the whole time just grates. For me, it's tired old s!$%e no matter how they rehash it, I'd rather they bin it and start something fresh.

Can't watch a new Top Gear episode right through. The presenters seem nervous somehow and try too hard. I cringe and flick channels.
I can, however, have classic TG episodes on Dave running in the background all day and they still raise a smile.

When did being obnoxious and unpopular ever stop somebody getting their own show on the BBC ?

They need to leave it now. The whole concept has run it's course IMO. Who the Hell can afford these cars and it just breeds envy, discontentment and avarice.

Better to make another cookery programme :sick:

The show still sells big over the world. You don't stop making your biggest selling and most profitable product.
