...which is also reflected in a large number of the comments, especially in 11x01.notice how most of the silly 1, 2 and 3 points are given by people who have not posted or only a few times...
THAT'S MORE LIKE IT!
-not sure why tokyo was traffic free? It is usually a disaster. Maybe it was sunday?
9.5/10. Just because I didn't laugh as hard as convertible people carrier, which was 10/10
I had a look at it again this week and have noticed this occurrence; the screen he apparently gets stuck on later on in the race is very much similar to the one he sifted through in the beginning when explaining the functions of the GT-R.Loved. I mean absolutely loved it.
Did anyone notice though, Jezza is playing with the sat-nav in the beginning cycling through all the graphics, but then later couldn't figure it out when he was on the phone? Staged? Maybe, I don't bloody care. It was brilliant episode.
Perhaps some editing trickery occured where the race happened then he went through the features and in editing they put that bit at the front..... maybe....?I had a look at it again this week and have noticed this occurrence; the screen he apparently gets stuck on later on in the race is very much similar to the one he sifted through in the beginning when explaining the functions of the GT-R.
Sorry to resurrect a very old thread, but I re-watched the episode and questioned what James translated at the end. I don't know what his electronic translator said exactly, but it wasn't "oh cock".Does anyone remember how James May pronounced "Oh Cock" in Japanese?
great episode, the whole race had me glued to the tv. 9/10
Don't come to my house for dinner.I also apologise for thread resurrection - but...
When Hammond and May were transiting from Shinkansen to metro at Shin-Yokohama station, they were rushing so weren't entirely sure they were on the right train. If the indicator on the line diagram went to #23 then they were heading in the right direction towards Yokohama Station #20. If it lit up #25, they were heading in the wrong direction and would have to get off and change.
But... Shin-Yokohama station IS #25 on that diagram (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shin-Yokohama_Station ????), it's even got "JR" above it in the line diagram which denotes connections with Shinkansen. So they'd already travelled one station in the right direction when they suddenly became unsure. If they got on at Shin-Yokohama not knowing if they were going in the right direction or not, they'd be praying for #24 and not #26, rather than #23 and not #25.
Basically, they'd moved one station in the right direction, knew this, THEN decided to fake the whole "omg are we going in the right direction?" drama.
