when will people get it?
if you were disapointed/offended or you have some point to make about why Jezza forgot something or failed to mention something or even that he didnt do a proper review or that not all the presenters have had a go yet or whatever then you are just watching the show all wrong.
every film they show has a point and sometimes that point is, well, no point. as far as the challenges, well, im sure i speak for most people on here when i say that we all look forward to every challenge. they could do a cheap car every week and i would be just fine with that.
the bottom line is that im not trying to sit here and tell you all that your oppinions are all wrong but that what your baseing your oppinion on IS wrong. this show is FAR from serious and you need to remember that. if you watch it like your watching 3 men screw up the world around you, then, your in for a fun hour. if you watch it expecting good, real, unbiased car reviews that give you all the points, well, your just watching it for the wrong thing.
I've just done the very same thing - got me a cheap rear wheel drive car for the sake of rear wheel drive.
And I have to say, each day without a slide is a lost day
Mine's way better than each of their shitboxes though - a 20 year old Merc 190E 2,6 for 1500 Euros.
There is a whole other argument that growing crops to make fuel takes away from land to grow food crops and leads to people starving. But that's anothing thing.
A bit late with my 'review.'
Why did they feel the need to do another RWD cheap car challenge? However I liked the snow race, Olivier Panis' annoyance with the Marina, and Hammond's comment when Olivier passes his failed Scandinavian Flick - "that was that Oliver Penis man again"
XFR was good but getting bored of reviews at the track - anyone remember the XJ test to John o' Groats? Something like that would have been fun.
7/10. Good but the pandering to the 8 year old demographic is getting boring especially when you look back to the seasons 5-7 when the balance was so perfect.
a much better episode than last week...I loved the challenge, "what the hell is that shit-box?!" , "there goes that Oliver Penis guy again", Jeremy 'the meddler' and Hammond bumping into Jeremy's car to avoid hitting the Marina...haha, and the news was great, "Jaaaaag!"
Good solid episode. I laughed through most of it. Gave it a 10 for the sole fact that the SIARPC wasnt a total twat this week but instead a woman of outstanding beauty. I always enjoy episodes where they have to buy cars for dirt cheap and are issued a series of challenges.
I agree though that all three of them going for two-door coupés yet again, and one even for another Porsche 944, was a bad mistake. But that's probably what you're gonna get if you do leave some freedom of decision to these presenters.
If you actually go for a cheap RWD car that you might even want to live with for a while without doing major reconstruction, nobody in their right minds should go for a derelict Porsche pup or a rusted-up piece of Ford junk. And neither for the Beemers that Jezza mentioned when blasting James for choosing the Capri. In my experience, they are usually way overpriced because they are well sought after by a certain clientele.
(Leaving you with an old Merc, a Volvo or a Mazda MPV )
solid episode, 7 for the show and +1 for Sienna Miller, so 8/10 from me
I liked this episode lots It was funny, especially the news, even if 'Jaaaaaaaaaaaaag' was said about 3 too many times!!
The carbon monoxide section seemed a bit last minute, but still funny.
Is it me, or did we not get the lap times for XFR or M5?
Apart from that, even the Capri breaking down the way it did was almost foreseeable. A friend of mine who's a Ford fan went through three 2.3 liter engines with his Capri before finally acceppting that they can't take long stretches at full throttle. The he traded the Capri for a 60's Transit camper.
Apart from that, not surprinsingly, all has been said about this episode after three days, so just count me as one more who thinks that was one of the best episodes in years - 10/10.
First thing i thought when the piano fell... "Plissken's gonna like that".

Well a much better episode this week, the employee's are still talking about it unlike last weeks.
I liked this one, better than last week anyway. 7/10
I usually like the cheap/old car things. This one wasn't too original but still fun. The XFR was cool. I'd also like to see James review a car next.
Usually don't care for SIARPC but this one was one of the better ones I remember. Had only heard of her once or twice but she was funny and her lap was like watching someone drive in a video game. Being really really good looking helps too.
Maybe it's not Dave i know the same versions of the eps are used round the world.
Maybe it's one of the other country's that need it bleeping out and its cheaper just to have one edited version than two.
