I'm not a big petrol head (I drive a Nissan Primera!) but I love the show.

I know that alot of it might be staged and scripted but I find it a lot funnier than other shows that they pass off for light entertainment.

The first part of the Africa show was excellent and I will be watching the second part on Sunday evening.
I knew it was coming, but watching the camera pan across Clarkson and May, having a cold one, sat on the bonnets of their car and then across to Hammond sat in the comfy chair was a lol moment.
I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

I love it myself. Yes it's a bit cliché but who cares?
It's light entertainment with some incredible cars that most of us can only dream of owning. My favourite special was the Vietnam one with the mopeds, I don't think they'll ever top that one.

What I would love to see is re-runs of the really old top gears with Noel Edmunds etc. I'd just love to see them reviewing cars like the Austin Maestro and ohh'ing and arr'ing at its digital speedo etc.

I once came across Jeremy Clarkson in the port at Porto Vecchio, he had a big boat and said he had a villa there.

I remarked that there must be a lot of money to be earned by driving cars badly. I think that sums up Top Gear

as has been said it's the theatrics and false timing that started to put me off

I have just heard on the radio that Top Gear are filming on 90 mile beach today. They are filming a jet car? I can't find out if it's the UK presenters or the Aussie rip off guys.

Now THAT (assuming it's shown over here if not filmed by the British crew) I WOULD like to watch.

The only reason it was talked about on the radio was that the local council gave permission without asking the locals who live on/nr the beach. It will most likely be on the news tonight if so I will post a link to the news channel.

You can bet your bottom dollar that the company filming the programme offered your council big bucks, and unfortunately, as with councils everywhere, they take more notice of money than residents' views. No doubt they'll come out with a 'Puts money into the local economy,' justification for riding rough shod over those residents.
