That first ep was "unwatchable" as it was horrible but I'm happy to say that I think they still have the good aspects of the old show - the roadtests.FG is seems a bit unwatchable, innit? I find myself skipping a segment or two per show. Timmy is useless.
Yeah i agree, the first episode was terrible, but so of the stories from there have been pretty good mainly the Tiff, Jason and some of Tom's stories.That first ep was "unwatchable" as it was horrible but I'm happy to say that I think they still have the good aspects of the old show - the roadtests.
All that cafe BS is just....well, BS I guess!
That's nice.Oh well everyone wants to rant about how bad the program is so I'll leave this open.
I'm not surprised. I only watch FG because I can easily download it and watch it at my convienience. If I lived in the UK and could only catch it whenever it airs, I wouldn't care if I missed it - it's one of those shows now.Forgive me if the info I'm about to impart is already posted, but it's late, I'm a little tired and there are four pages to go through.
Just to give you an idea of how "rubbish" Fifth Gear is, here are the ratings for the week ending 23rd July 2006. Top Gear was watched by 3.89 million people. Fifth Gear, was watched by 0.68 million [right at the bottom]. The repeat of Top Gear the day after Fifth Gear, got 1.70 million.
How Fifth Gear got another series is beyond me. I'd also like to say that Tim Lovejuice is a total arse. Thank you. I'm off to my bed.
I actually think FG's camera work has been at it's best this season. Same the content itself has been rather lousy and other aspects of the show has let it down.FG now is really bad. But it is not only fault of the presenters. The camerawork, effects etc. are much better in TG. F.e. when Jason was testing 997 turbo there was 1 powerslide, what were doing the guys with the cameras ? And their track will never be better than airport, it is good for quick driving but it`s poor for powerslides...
I'd love to watch that show. Dump everything and everyone else and just do those three with some Bentley crash stuff like he used to and it will be gold.I think Jason, Tiff and Tom should go and have a show of their own ... better to have a 20 minute show that's packed with something we want than 45 minutes of which half an hour is rubbish I have to fast forward through ...
