There were indications of a first filming date of Wed 22nd June, (transmission 26th) but Applause Store has yet to release filming dates or send ticket request emails out which is leaving it a bit tight on the organisational front.

Love how you've used the words 'Applause Store' and 'organisational' in the same sentence :lol:

Bye bye Alfa - Hello Mini Cooper
It's just a placeholder, more than likely. :nod:
Probably right. The same night has the last ep of Engineering Connections and James's one-off Toy Stories show in the usual Top Gear slot, so it's like a mini TG themed night.

Did I seriously create two threads about this or was there a split? If so, sorry dudes.

I rather enjoyed series 14, with the exception of 14x7. 14 had one of my favorite road trips (Romania), one of my favorite road tests (Renault Twingo), the art gallery show, one of the best specials (Bolivia), and the Lancia segment which was one of my favorite all-time segments.

Series 14 is rather problematic. Normally, there's stuff on Top Gear that you can just go "meh" about. Not Series 14. Everything was either terrific (Romania, Bolivia, the Lancia film) or unremittingly awful (Geoff, the art gallery, the airship caravan, 14x07 as a whole). They were also ripping themselves off too much (the Twingo review, airport vehicle racing). It's one of the few series where you have to pick your moments. It's thanks to Series 14 that a lot of people are scared regarding some of the spoilers that are coming about regarding Series 17. The memories are just too fresh.

It's only a TV show - not a terrorist atrocity!

none, yet...
not sure if this is useful in any way but i saw this on the TG website n got a bit excited:

"Other reports claim this is more of James? moonlighting: in this case, a new series of his Man Lab. No word on when the series will be on your screens, but it will be on BBC Two at the end of this year. And on that note, we?ll be able to start talking about the new series of Top Gear very soon?"

i think it will be starting either the 19th or probably the 26th but i cant wait either way!!

PWooster i must ask, how have you got such a catastrophic rep power bar in such a short period of time?

I don't let it get to me. Some people take the internet, or specifically this forum, very very seriously.

IMHO the way i see it, if you have that much neg rep in that short amount of time then it has alot more to do with the way your doing things here and alot less about how seriously people take this forum. on the other hand, if you think that then maybe this isnt the place for you. your thoughts?
