5G is looking more and more like a TG clone..

Yeah, the "star in a reasonably priced car" bit needs to be dropped, pronto. No more interviews.

FG should stay they are now but spend that extra time addressing real issues about the car their testing in a more detailed way. Unlike JC in the CLS.

It will be nice to have a longer FG, but I only watch FG to tide me over when there's no TG. For what it is FG is a good show, but has always lacked the time needed to properly present the cars.

It's just so boring having to listen to Tiff. He really can drive, but his squeaky voice is like nails being pushed through my eardrums.

I also agree with other comments about that Bentley guy, he really is tireing to listen to.

The similarities between FG and TG can easily be attributed to the fact that both shows has a similar past in the original TG, but it would be very wrong for FG to become a carboncopy of TG, they simply don't have the comedic talent or the carisma to pull it off.

I hope that it means that they increase each artical length, not just put more things into the hour.
TBH, i'm quite happy with the current length of each review..it might be short but it is to-the-point and understandable.
I'm not too keen on FG taking the "comedic" format of car reviews like TG quite simply cos FG brings some sanity to an otherwise fuel burning week of TG :mrgreen: And besides, could you imagine Tiff trying to be funny :lmao: Yeh right! Thats a laugh and a half :roll:
I think you have a point.... but they can bring somebody else... to Be the counterpart..... you know

MEEE!!! jajaja isnt that funny!

I dont think it will be the case..... FG is more technical than TG... as I said before... FG is a Racing Driver.. that want to be a journalist... ans TG is a journalist that want to be a race driver... am I right...?

That is very true!! But somehow he does he's thing well. U know with all the boring stuff... :shock:

Can't wait to see if they change it to a show like TG. But i don't believe that FG is gonna be better than TG, ever...

Top Gear still beats them by about 15 min. off time because the commercials.
a very good point! :thumbsup:

But very nice that FG has desided to extend the airtime.
