    Hm, pretty good by today's TG standards. The Lexus film seemed like just an excuse to do a remake of the LFA film (when the original one was better), but it was still solid. Also getting properly mad at a car is its own reward. The Canada film was above average for a Top Gear comedy skit...

    Yeah hm. I thought it was alright. 6/10 maybe? ? Corvette bit was good, though I have driven a C7 so I knew the twist was coming. But I can't really fault them for that. ? News was a Top Gear bit for sure, I can't really pay attention anymore at this point. ? I am sure the LaFerrari is a great...

    9/10 from me because it had a slow start and still showed trace amounts of scripting and of course making obvious mistakes for comedic reasons (surprise, highway cruisers get stuck in the mud), but when it was on it was simply Top Gear at its best.

I get why some people complain that TGUSA isn't about cars enough, but it's laughable that this is held against an US version of an UK concept that was even less informative and substantially less entertaining on...

    Comparison: Kind of funny how a bunch of low-tier (for TG) cars manage to take Clarkson out of his comfort zone better than firebreathing exotics. It certainly seemed less by-the-numbers than most of his recent track tests, sometimes less is more. Still not the best they ever did with this kind...

    Pagani: Generic Top Gear track test, well shot and edited as usual, but I can easily point out 20 better ones of those. That's pretty sad for a car that is as unusual as this one. The only interesting thing about it is that Hammond did his part quite well, but that just means he apparently now...
