    [05x01] September 16th, 2022 - A Scandi Flick

    I also thought it was right back up to their old standards after the understandably underwhelming Covid ones. Some of the joking around has more of an edge now, though, like when Jeremy showed up at the pizza place. He seemed genuinely angry. Also they actually took the car modification...

    Good news! Amazon renews TGT for Season 4

    The only part of the studio segments I liked was when they provided more information about the cars they reviewed in the films, since these days they give scant technical details aside from top speed and 0-60.

    I also thought Hammond and May's contracts were expiring, along with Clarkson's? I don't think the 4 of them are under contract with anyone at the moment.

    Best Series?

    I liked 4 and 10. 4 had the first used car challenge and race, and was consistently funny and innovative.

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    Does anyone have any sense for how much money Top Gear brings in for the BBC? Is it their most valuable brand? It's been watched all over the world for years...

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    Crap. Clarkson is easily the best TV personality on the air today so I hope this isn't the end...
