It was far from bad enough to compare to India. For God's sake people...
Another equine that's been pummeled to a fine paste already.this has potential for lots of "May-old man" jokes
I get that feeling too. It's called acid reflux.and general laughter from the pit of yer stomach.
1. I wouldn't be surprised if they used music from that video for this segment.
2. If there's an organization out there for users of mobility chairs, I'm expecting them to be up in arms about this no matter what writing line they take. BBC Complaints had better brace itself.
3. Is Hammond wearing earplugs?
the thread, but the links in the OP are out-dated, sadly. Also, it makes you wonder if they had this idea in the back of their mind since then lol.

My stance on TG films is that when they make a genuine attempt to succeed at something but fail in the process, letting things happen naturally and the presenters just behave as themselves then that works. When they incorporate the failure into the original plan and shooting script and expect the presenters to pull it off it doesn't, simply because they aren't actors and are utterly unconvincing. The show really doesn't need it to be good but sadly they seem to think otherwise.
What I don't need is some jumped-up, snot-nosed Junior IceBone calling me insane or an idiot or whatever each time I express a view about how I feel that populist fanboi-ism is sending one of my favourite shows hurtling down the sewer.
And junior Icebone? Seriously? The only thing between us is Slovenia. And even that is relative.
Because I guarantee you that taking that "I'm 19 and I know fucking everything" attitude out into the real world if and when you eventually grown up will have you on your knees looking for your own teeth.
This looks hilarious!
Also, looks like the challenge is to build a mobility scooter that goes on-road and off-road (Jeremy's has 8 wheels, James' has chunky tires, and Richard's has a tank track at the back!).
Perhaps one of those sorts of challenges to see if you can improve the scootering experience to make it somewhat like a car for those who can't drive anymore and need scooters? I'll bet it will be an interesting challenge, nonetheless.
I learn a little every day and also learn there is another even bigger pile of stuff that I don't know.

I learn something new everyday, but it seems increasingly because I've forgotten the lessons of yesterday.
Was looking at this and the big preview video at topgear.com with my eight year old son and he said this was the bit he was most looking forward to. It looks REALLY funny and as much as the cars are great - like it or not - for the majority of 'average' top gear fans who don't come on here and have started watching in the past few years - this is what they watch the show for - not long reviews of supercars.
Richard's sounds like my riding lawn mower.
As for the kid on a leash, it is an excellent idea when there will be lots of people around and possibly motorized things and you can not keep full attention on a small child. I see then in the airports a lot and I also see parents that wish they had them. It gives the kid a little run around room without you having to chase them down all the time.
Like Matt, I prefer to let the boys just be funny on their own but I have liked some of the set ups too. The caravan fire for example, I laugh every time I see them dragging that burned out hunk of caravan behind the car. I liked the police cars too esp James's siren. On the other hand, I think Jeremy should be caned for what he did to those lunches in India, pretend delivery or not. (It is so funny that the powers that be in India did not bring that bit up at all and I think that was the only disrespect in the whole film which convinces me they were poked with a stick by the british press and maybe shown a few clips but nobody actually watched the show.)
