Anyone else notice they reused an old "some say..." about the Stig? They said he was rejected from "I'm a Celebrity" because he is one. They used that in one of the past two or three series.
After rewatching the episode, I think the whole Geoff thing could've been saved if they'd just approached it slightly differently. Maybe if they'd had Jeremy, Richard and James test driving various Eco-cars, taking notes on what was obviously (and humorously) wrong with them and then jointly deciding on what the perfect 'eco car' should be like. Plenty of opportunities to share some useful consumer info (sorry) and loads of room for arguments and funny criticism.
Part 2 would start with the reveal of the completed car (ditching the whole moronic build phase) and they could simply justify the crap looking car by blaming budget/time constraints. Then they could engage in a series of 'tests' to prove it's better than it's eco-competitors, culminating in the crash tests in which poor Geoff is crushed like a tin can. Ambitious, but rubbish...
I'm sorry, all you people saying you'd give this ep a 9 or a 10... have you been watching the show for the last 7 years? This episode was in NO WAY up to usual TG standards. Seriously, if you don't count the camera work (which is always top-notch) this is on par with student films. It's that poor.
Go watch the homemade limos ep, or the Winter Olympics special, or the amphibious vehicles challenge (1 or 2, take your pick) and then come tell me that this ep rates a 10/10. I dare you.
Yeah, I wondered about those holes too. A bit convenient, to have patched holes in the original that later have a bumper sticking out in the sequel.
Why don't you take your red blobs and go find somewhere else to play?
You are not going to convince people you are right and they are stupid for enjoying the show presented to us.
In the 8 yr old world the TG 3 like to live in, drawing a penis on someone's face is pissing funny. And who is this "WE" that are expecting a different kind of humor? Is it the people that think like you and hang around on fan boards for a show they clearly are not enjoying.
It is what it is. The fact it is not going in the direction YOU want is unfortunate for you, but what are your options? Hang around here and keep collecting red blobs until you are banned, or move on and find a new show.
Only 3... a stupid part with crash test ruined all episode for me ;/
Me and my brothers couldnt stop laughing when JC was talking about Manor F1. I can just get the bus to dinnington would take me about 15 minutes. T' imo Glock :lol:
