I enjoyed that one. I do so wish they'd sack off Eddie Jordan, though.

 

 

And The Kraut.

 

I don't dislike EJ like many seem to (he seems like an alright guy) but he brings nothing to TG. Neither Does SS*. Yes, she can drive but so can CH.

 

 

 

 

*See what I did there?

I enjoyed that one, F1 shite aside.
Jay Kay is a good guest, and it was nice to hear about the Diablo windscreen. When I was at school and Cosmic Girl was new, there was rumour going around that it had no screen.

The Ssangyacht was tremendous, too. Given we have seen amphibious cars a couple of times before, I thought this was very original and not too bodged.
It looked genuinely terrifying when flat out. :D

So £30K + for a single use prop. Value!

 

But surely when you sell the footage of that prop for £8m it becomes good value. They didn't have to film it in Monaco either, or pay Eddie Jordan to do the review and so on but that's what they need to do to make it sell.

 

If they even make half of the £40 million net profit they made from it with the last 3 idiots on it, they are still doing okay aren't they.

 

If they used a pedal car on a rowing boat and filmed it in a municipal swimming pool in Stafford, it might not be as popular with the viewers.

I'm trying to determine who hates that wanker JK most; a dead heat between Harris and LeBlanc, so far. Rory is close behind though.

 

I do.

I remember the dance he did on old Top Gear when he got the fastest lap and sincerely wanted to invent a personalised nuke to put an end to such unbearableness.

He owns a Rover P6 and drives a Bellingo day-to-day. That puts him up a couple of notches in my eyes.

For the first time in many years I've watched every episode in the series and have to say I've enjoyed them all. Yeh theres been a few lame bits but overall I've preferred it to old TG.

 

The Bernie vs Eddie thing was odd and painful. Presumably they got offered an exclusive interview, felt they couldn't turn it down, then felt like they had to show it despite it being a car crash.

 

Bring on the next series!
