But I really hope Jezza isn't powersliding it around the track. It just seems wrong in that car...but maybe thats just me!
Yeah, it's a pity the vast majority of the reviews appear on the track. Just seeing a car woosh up and down and skid sideways can get a bit tiresome, regardless of how great the camerawork and editing is.

I used to really enjoy the seemingly normal reviews done on the road or a special location. The Lambo Murcielago in Spain at the bullrun, and Nissan Murano at the footballers-wives suburb.

Unlike the Phantom, the Arnage and Brooklands are meant to be more driver's cars than cars to be driven in.
Compare the burnouts and powerslides of the Arnage to the understeer of the Phantom:

I'm incredibly excited for the Alfa bit, although I'm fearful of what they'll dredge up for so little.

Of course I do - thats one of the most memorable Top Gear reviews :D

I still didn't like it though! Bentleys + wheelspin = BAD :mrgreen:

:?

I like the prospect of the Alfa challenge. The 'stars' ... not so much.

Why don't they just rename the segment 'Two Irritating Twats In A Reasonably Priced But Total Fucking Heap Of Stinking Dogshite On Wheels'? Or better yet, give SIARPC a rest for a while ... they can rebuild the Cool Wall and use that as filler instead.

New stuff at http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/show/nextepisode.shtml


Next episode
The presenters try to buy reliable Alfa Romeos for under ?1000...
It doesn't go well.

All three of the presenters go on the hunt for the holy grail of motoring - a reliable used Alfa Romeo - with predictably messy results.

Jeremy takes the new Bentley Brooklands beyond the limit. Way, way beyond, in fact.

And, Gavin and Stacey stars James Corden and Rob Brydon take to the track in our reasonably priced car.

The 3-way reviews are where the TG3 really shine the best, so I'm seriously looking forward to the Alfa challenge. I agree with everyone else, though, that they need more May, and not just to introduce the stunt guy.

The Bentley Brooklands should be epic! Anyone remember the tyre bursting in the season preview? :D Alfa Challenge should be brilliant too!

I don't get why people hate the SIARPC segment so much I think it's funny and usually pretty good. I wonder if the reason people don't like it is because they don't know the guests?

Maybe there should be a new thread about the segment with a poll - but we'd need to measure it based on In or Outside the UK as I have a theory that a greater percentage of people in the UK will like it than those out of the UK.

Something like

Do you like SIARPC?

I love and I'm in the UK
I hate it and I'm in the UK
Meh and I'm in the UK
I love it and I'm outside the UK
I hate it and I'm outside the UK
Meh and I'm outside the UK
