  • New season of Top Gear

    Heads up for those who want to check out if Matt Leblanc can carry through on the promise he showed last season.

    Starts this evening at 2000 on BBC2

    Looking forward to it. While I believe Chris Evans genuinely wanted to provide a good motoring entertainment show last year, his style of hosting wasn't suited to it.
    So long as they feature some cars and driving they should be OK.
    When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command.

    Very often that individual is crazy.

          Really did enjoy that immensly. When you look at the 3 boys, while on paper Matt LeBlanc is the main star, they come across as if they are all on the same level. Harris reminds me of Clarkson 20 years ago, just a proper died in the wool petrolhead and one hell of a good driver

              Found that quite watchable. Definitely looking forward to it next week as it will feature the Giulia !

                Great to see GT86 as a celebrity car.
                Any car that merely takes you from A-B does not go far enough.

                  That is a big improvement on the old reasonably priced car nonsense.

                  The new look set is an improvement also, brings it up to date.

                      Thought it was very good. Harris despite all his experience manages to get across his excitement for decent cars. The scripting is much better and a GT86 for the star laps will be a bit of crac. Also liked the new set, the Testarossa, Contach and Esprit (?) on the strip looked sharp.
                      All that was missing from my bedroom at 15 was a 959, a ford RS200, a Metro 6R4 and a tennis lady!

                            Just remember, that tennis lady is much older now and her ass is sagging down to her knees.

                            Really enjoyed the first episode. There are ghosts of the old show still there and there is room for improvement but on the whole it's a big step in the right direction.

                              At last something watchable. Most of the basis covered and a lot more petrol oriented even if the feature did focus on some diesel taxis. Worth series linking this year.
