It was the usual Top Gear and quite enjoyed the episode. I have to say though, that Richard looks much more manlier with a mustache.

and of course + rep for MWF :D

Good show, especially MWF (I didn't actually know it was him till coming on here, then I had to watch it again :) recognized the T-shirt :D, well done mate + rep & all that) 7/10

P.S. If I ever get to go to England can you sneak me in to the show he-he? :love::blush:

Um - I dislike Geldorf a lot.

Show was only OK - still one of the best things on TV this week mind you but not up to scratch compared with the first few shows this series.

I was shouting "It's a Galant you clot" at the screen. I had the model two version before that one.

Edit/ Oh and a 8/10 - but that was because of some odd good will from the first shows left unscored sp a 8 but only just about.

Did I mention I dislike Geldorf a lot - well I do, he's a foul oik. ...

I was a very good girl this time and hardly peeked at spoilers and I was glad I didn't - I love the surprises as I don't watch the episode until night time here in Australia. Loved it, loved it. These three men have been such a huge part of my life over the years... So much love for them and the show!

Jensen - Oh myyy... hilarious. James is just about the funniest bloke I've ever seen and he doesn't even have to do anything :lol: The intro was a classic. Loved the shadow dancing and Richard kicking the woman in the crotch! I don't think I stopped laughing throughout. Richard's constant karate chopping... oh my gosh I'm still laughing.

News - Okay, I know it's not a nice subject but I find Jeremy's obsession with bird dirt very amusing :D I didn't realise it was MWF until I read back through the posts! Good one. I actually like James' pre-flight checks and I find the whole topic fascinating. I've always adored the thought of 'James the Pilot'.

Lotus - Amazing. Well done, Jeremy. You did a fantastic job and were the perfect choice for giving it a go.

Demolition - I wonder if the first piece was filmed during the first Albanian trip. Richard's hair was long, which I guess is an indication that it could have been. Going through the military equipment was exciting, and I loved James and Richard's mutual appreciation of the helicopters :) Seeing Richard flying was a bonus too, as I also love the thought of 'Richard the Pilot' (notice a pattern here :p) Some very funny moments during this segment. I was worried for Richard being underneath all the rubble and the hatch opening... :lol: :blink: far out.

Wonderful episode, full of laughs and good times. Thank you to the boys and the crew once again.

Had to step away during the SIARPC segment, so I can't comment on that...but I'm really looking forward to re-watching the entire episode. What I did see was definitely enjoyable.

Agreed on the thoughts for this season - even the 'worst' bits of this season have been entertaining.

I've got a feeling you might be right on that one... it'd be hard to justify a trip all the way to Albanina just to have a go at knocking apart a house, despite how cheap the property might be...

Here's how much I know about cars: I thought Jeremy had got the bird wrong. Which would have been cooler.

Liked the transition from serious review to 70s fun

Why does Clarkson have to rub in his face that that driver gets payed to come near his parts?

What kind of bucket in the middle construction machine was the guest driving? He had dirty fingernails...

9/10

I loved this episode. It was all great except for the SIARPC segment which was actually quite hard to watch with him constantly complaining about how crap he was. Loved the 70's intro and the houses bit was very funny.
And well done MWF!! You're a legend in my books.

8.5-9/10

Gave it a 3/10. The most unlikable guest they've ever had, and they've had Simon Cowell twice.
Simon's epic. At least he doesn't expose his ankles because he's fond of their ... roundness. God...

Anyway good episode, some great laughs ! I never expect the SIARPC segment to be good which is why I'm never disappointed, just positively surprised, which I think you should all do so as to avoid rating an episode a 5 because you didn't care for the guest.

Since I saw the episode as a SD rip, the "What're they gonna do? cut us o" really had me laughing for about 30seconds especially as I hadn't looked at the timer for a couple of minutes.

Gave it an 8/10 which is always my bottom rating for a TG episode.

Enjoyed the Jensen and the Lotus, but not the demolition stuff- it just wasn't funny and struck me as completely pointless- very forgettable 'cocking about' I'm afraid.

Finally managed to get hold if this week's episode. (a pox on slow internet speed Mondays). Thoroughly enjoyed this week. Loved the Jensen Interceptor, especially the 70's telly show send up. I remember those shows all too well and they really nailed it. Loved the 70's porno mos - kinda companion piece to the growler of the other week. Loved Richard's dodgy karate kicks and chops. So random. Especially the bloke opening the car door for him. Some of the car reviews sometimes have my attention wandering but this week's were just different enough to hold my focus. Military hardware demolition. Enoyed that as well. Thought the best bit of that segment was Richard and James' apparent delight at all the toys on display. James driving the jeep, fun. Richard's giggling glee at being able to fly one of those choppers - priceless.

OH and MWF, your cameo - epic!!

It was solid and I liked the Jensen Intercept and the Lotus T128. That part while they were in Albania was intresting, but not the best. The 70's intro they did was hilarious and I thought it was pretty darn good. I was impressed with the first half, the second half not so much. Soild episode nonetheless.

Obviously, the best part of the episode was MWF's appearance on the show.

Secondly, I enjoyed the Jensen film with the montage at the end...but for a different reason. I liked that they showed the final product. In the middle of the Jensen segment I was already cringing - "Oh no, they are going to spend 10 minutes showing how they shot the film and what other "brilliant" ideas they had for it."

The way they did it was perfect - a proper car review, a little bit of humor, and a little bit of cocking about. It was the perfect blend.

Didn't like it at all, they've went far from what this show was about, hope it's only for last hour and a half of the show. This one i 5/10 max.
