I get the feeling they filmed a lot of this season before Morrison was available, but already got rid of Cox.I really think they need to include all three presenters in these challenges, it makes it sooo much more exciting/interesting.
Both LP640's were borrowed from private owners. Lamborghini is quite stubborn when it comes to handing out press vehicles in Australia, even Clarkson struggled to secure the LP560-4 for Top Gear Live despite being a customer.Yeah, the media wrote stories like that about last series as well. They're full of it. One of the manufacturers they named was Lamborghini, who were supposedly fuming that the car they took to Tassie suffered many thousands of dollars worth of paint damage from stone chips. Yet come episode 1 of this series, Steve was in an even more expensive Lamborghini.
Yeah, I did read that, however 20 years in the ad industry leads me to believe that the spate of Mitsi 'appearances' aren't merely coincidence. Thinly veiled product placement methinks.I think the product placement criticisms may be jumping the gun a bit here.
The Evo used in James' segment was part of a new, multi-million dollar refresh of what was previously the Police Academy Stunt Show at Warner Bros Movie World - it was big news about a month ago.
Who's 'WE'?As for stone chip damage, this is unavoidable - you should have seen the front of the Gallardo's when we handed them back.
Haha yes, loved that.I liked it.
I do, however, have only one phrase to sum up the show:
Hey, what am I?
*sitting with two sheep next to me*
I doubt Chrysler/Valiants could be seen as advertising for Mitsubishi. The EvoX's in the stunt driving thing seems just like a coincidence to me.6/10
Starting to get annoyed by all the Mitsi product placement bullshit.
- Redo the Lancer ad
- Charger ad
- Sigma ad
- James picks a Lancer Evo 10
- MovieWorld with Lancers
And this is ep 3!
If I were VW I'd be making calls.
Warren is really funny.
So the acoustics in the TG hangar are still crap and they haven't got that sussed then? It did sound as though Anh was trying to get through to the whole audience in the studio and wasn't conscious of the mike. I'm surprised Satan* didn't pick up on that and get the sound of Anh's mike turned down so it would sound less shouty on TV.During this time Ahn did some standup, he really had to yell to be heard, I guess he was still projecting his voice to the audience rather than the mike.
I have to say that when Steve was asking Waz whether he'd have the Maserati over the Aston, there did seem to be a bit of emotion there ... it seemed less scripted than usual.i just would have loved to see more real emotion out of them
