    Oh yeah, what was the deal with this guy in the awesome outfit in Tbilisi? Is he a guard or something?

    James May's Big Trouble in Model Britain

    P.S. This doesn't work. I tried. ;)

    Diecast Models

    Do any of you collect those CM's Rally cars? Especially for the size, the livery detail on them is incredible! I have around a dozen of them.

    Diecast Models

    I wish I could afford a really nice diecast. Just one. Preferrably a McLaren F1 of some sort. ;) I have a ton of different ones, ranging from goofy to super cool, and I love them, but nothing with really incredible detail.

    James May's Big Trouble in Model Britain

    Finally watching the second episode and I find it interesting/disturbing that this young woman's first assignment is to redesign a NASCAR slot car. Eww! ;) But she doesn't seem to mind. Anyway, good series. I always find it interesting when once huge companies struggle to make it big again, or...

    Thoughts as I watch: Why am I getting Mustang vibes from the front of the BMW? :p The DBS looks much better than the Vantage, but still not up to fairly recent Aston snuff. Okay, later on, I'm still seeing Mustang! Regarding the Stalin statue thing... I guess kudos to Richard for going...

    [26x05] Mar. 17, 2019- Last LeBlanc episode :(

    "It's not an ugly car, but..." Yeah, that's how I feel too, Matt. It's a 'not ugly' car. 😕 The backhanded compliment it deserves. I like how the segment ended in a non-Aston way, haha. The Phantom review was decent. Still wondering when/if they'll make a truly new version of it. Chris' quick...

    [26x05] Mar. 17, 2019- Last LeBlanc episode :(

    And last for Rory as a main show presenter as well... Why?! Matt tests the new Vantage, Rory tests the new Phantom, and Chris tests the new Fiesta ST. Rory also tests automated braking. Lots of outtakes at the end, too! :)

    [03x10] March 15, 2019 - The Youth Vote

    Loved the Testarossa and got to see one in the late 80s at a car show, but I don't think it has aged as well as some others of the era. Still looks great at the back, though! Countach, though, is amazing in any era. I think back to Jason Dawe on Top Gear doing the segment where they took all the...

    First trailer for post-LeBlanc Top Gear

    ...and to a lesser extent, cuz he'll still be doing Extra Gear, Rory Reid. Also not happy about that. 😕 Anyway, BBC posted this today...

    James May's Big Trouble in Model Britain

    It's funny, when I got the e-mail about your post, it just says "Embedded media". :)

    I agree. I really like him on the show.

    [26x04] Mar 10, 2019

    Some points while I watch... Even though James really started the whole thing, it's nice to see the Sandero legacy live on on the show. I enjoyed the semi-return of the no hands drag race. (they did a similar thing on Top Gear US and it was a really fun segment!) Seeing Chris flying around in...

    Ooo, another May series! Very nice. :)

    James May's Big Trouble in Model Britain

    Model train enthusiast James May's new 2-part documentary series about financially troubled toymaker Hornby Hobbies, makers of, among other things, model trains. Always happy to see another May solo project! I was never a model train enthusiast myself (even if I'd wanted to get into it, it...

    [03x09] March 8, 2019 - Aston, Astronauts and Angelina's Children

    Nice Vantage review, and though I think it's nice enough, I still don't like the look of it as much as the Astons of a few years ago. (the one Doug DeMuro had looked perfect!) The Vulcan is one thing, but this...I dunno. (I did prefer the dark one on the lap) The front seems a bit lacking...

    I enjoyed the jeweling reviews for the Bentley. ;) Taking it offroad reminds me of when Kris Meeke did it. I do think it's the best looking one yet, and is kinda cool, but still not a favorite. (a more rounded grille would help) I enjoyed the GT vs. Speed 8 race. Nice seeing the old Renaults...

    [26x03] Mar. 3, 2019

    On this episode, Chris and Matt both review the new Bentley Continental GT, Rory reviews the new Renault Megane, and Chris takes the 911 GT2 RS on the track.

    [03x08] March 1, 2019 - International Buffoons' Vacation

    I somehow missed this news, but am reading more about it now. I'll definitely miss Conversation Street! Hope the news won't be gone entirely. So basically, the show is going to become the same as Top Gear US became, where all Rut, Adam and Tanner did eventually was nothing but adventures. Hmm...

    Does anyone else watch this version?

    I watched the first episode and didn't bother with any others. Only 8 total, though, so I might check them out someday. The last episode aired Sept. 17, 2017, apparently, so I kinda doubt it'll be back.
