Just curious. Where are you working now in television production? Mentioning your degree doesn't bolster your opinion. On the contrary, it suggests you are not in the business. Employment gives you credibility. If you were employed, you would have mentioned it. Most of the media graduates I know are waiting tables or washing dishes.The biggest problem I see with this (And perhaps it's because I have my degree in film and television production, where I spent most of my time writing) is the writing.
I agree to use it on some occasions like, side mounting on the car, inside the car towards the host, but they are using it all the time, shooting the cars passing by, that's when it is annoying to me, see the cars or the objects on the side of the road all distorted, GoPros are good, light and cheap, i know that, but they are good to be on the object that its moving, not to shoot the object moving. and I know that I said the 3CCD thing, the problem with the cheaper digital camera is that they use CMOS, they are cheaper and use less power but they cause the Skew and Wobble effects, those that I was talking, so, like tguk used to do, mount a camera on the back of a van and have fun!So what? TGUK use them. Those GoPros get comparable image quality to Canon DSLRs, they're inexpensive and mount pretty much anywhere. Good luck getting a big 3CCD broadcast quality camera to sit ontop of a car at high speeds and not have to worry about bashing them up in accidents!
nope, you're not alone in thinking that...he also cheated with the 'egg test' last season in that 'which car should GM bring back?' episodeFor some reason, I just didn't like Rutledge "cheating" in the steering contest, mainly because they didn't know. I know it's virtually a tradition for Top Gear hosts to, er, "cut corners" or cheat, but it's usually in the name of humor and messing around with the other guys. I'm sure I'm alone in this, just found that quite low.
Other than a fuel injected engine vs a carburetor and some cosmetic differences, those two years of K cars aren't all that different, and those differences wouldn't have given him any advantage in the challenges.no my official 1st car was '81 K car; we couldn't find one so we got an '87
As it's off topic, I'll keep this quick:Just curious. Where are you working now in television production? Mentioning your degree doesn't bolster your opinion.

I think I know why you don't have a job writing for television. A good writer writes well and can construct a good argument that stands on its own. A hack begins his argument with, "I have a degree in television production.."
I'll have the New York Strip, please1
So, you're not a writer.As it's off topic, I'll keep this quick:
I am about as far away from waiting tables as you can possibly be. While in college I was offered a job at National Lampoon (Among others) for writing, but decided to finish out my degree...and even wrote a book while still in college. When I graduated it became more important for me to be able to support myself than to follow any sort of dream. I really didn't feel like being a 20k/year PA or junior writer until a script of mine finally sold when other industries would willingly pay me more.
The mention of my degree was not meant to bolster my credibility, but rather explain why my bias might lie in that particular direction.
...and New York Strip? You can do better than that.
Now, back to cars...
