    [24x01] March 5th, 2017 - the old track is back!

    There was always one irritating laugh that seemed to be in every CHM episode. It was almost like the Wilhelm scream.

    [24x01] March 5th, 2017 - the old track is back!

    There was no Stig because they couldn't do a power lap. He'll be there next week.

    [24x01] March 5th, 2017 - the old track is back!

    It was OK. The films were pretty good although the chemistry between the three guys is (obviously) not yet at the CHM level and the last film isn't as strong for it. But this definitely shows a lot more potential than the last series and confirms that removing Evans was absolutely the right...

    Matt LeBlanc signs on for 2 more series

    My issues against a female presenter were always against forcing one upon the programme simply to increase diversity or meet some quota. If there was a good choice out there I wouldn't mind.

    Hammond In Car Crash - (Now Moved from Leeds 28/09)

    Yeah, it's flown by. I distinctly remember waking up to the news before school and was pretty shocked. A lot has changed in the last 10 years!

    Ownership Verified: 1996 Daihatsu Midget II (why?!)

    Thanks for the kind comments. I'll be updating this from time to time as anything interesting happens. Aside from a frustrating drive to Birmingham and being laughed at by hordes rather than small groupings of people, and being filmed by some attractive schoolgirls from the back of a bus which...

    [23x04] June 19th, 2016

    Not a great episode but the last two weren't bad. And I did quite like EJ although he needs to be used sparingly.

    Ownership Verified: 1996 Daihatsu Midget II (why?!)

    It's actually the phone case which has folded up a bit in the corners. Then again, it was a very cheap one from more than 4 years ago.

    Ownership Verified: 1996 Daihatsu Midget II (why?!)

    Oh, I forgot one. I took this about a month ago. Sorry about the nonsense in the top left, I didn't notice it on the phone's screen.

    Ownership Verified: 1996 Daihatsu Midget II (why?!)

    Behold, the glorious Midget II! Currently prowling the UK in a manner of style and class rarely seen on today's roads. The Midget II's spartan yet stylish interior reflects the singular focus on speed with incredibly functional additions such as the ability to top up windscreen wiper fluid on...

    Other Random Car Sightings [Photo Required]

    Saw my first Bentley Bentayga outside of Stratford-upon-Avon Tesco. Dark blue colour. I have to concede that I quite liked it.

    Chris Evans - Hold or Fold?

    He's probably the biggest issue I have with the show right now but it's salvageable. If he stops flitting between a painful Clarkson impression and an exuberant anthropomorphic version of Beaker on acid and starts presenting naturally, he might have a chance. He's not terrible on the radio after...

    [23x01] May 29th, 2016 -- First Episode With New Cast

    Well, if we're comparing it to old old Top Gear then yeah, it's a lot more favourable outlook. And yes, it was better than the India special. I think the problem with CE I think is less about ego and more about how he's trying too hard to be like Clarkson in many segments and it feels...

    [23x01] May 29th, 2016 -- First Episode With New Cast

    One thing they can do to immediately improve the quality of the show is to tell Chris Evans to stop with his piss-poor Clarkson impersonation. I thought his voice in the intro was a parody at first. The rest of the show was OK but it's too close to CHM's incarnation and that does it no...

    What will you miss most about Top Gear?

    Great analogy. Top Gear was good because it did such a wide range of things better than what came before it. I guess the only segment I never liked was SIARPC. There were a few good guests but often the segment was just a bit dull, and I think the poll seems to reflect that as a consensus view...

    Best Series?

    I remember saying that 10 was my favourite soon after it finished and I don't think anything that came later topped it. I lived abroad during most of TG's run and 10 was the first season where I set up the episodes to auto-download on my laptop overnight so I could enjoy it ASAP. In general, I...

    [22x08] June 28th, 2015 [The Final Clarkson, Hammond, & May Episode]

    Obviously a piecemeal episode but I think the films would have worked well in a normal episode when mixed with the review, news etc. I think the fact that the two films were quite similar was somewhat detrimental when viewing them back to back with no breaks in between. That said, I can't say I...

    Chris Evans [of the UK] - three-year Top Gear deal

    Yeah, I saw that. I agree, I hope it's not just PC nonsense. I also don't want to see Jodie Kidd as she has the personality of a manikin. I think the Tom Ford thing is just a reference to his work at Top Gear Magazine.
