Just saw this for the 2nd time since it aired and I enjoyed it much more. I recommend a 2nd viewing for those who hated it the first time round. :)
Yeah bit late and after my favourites Vietnam and Bolivia I somewhat enjoyed the NY - Middle East special and grew to like it. So when I left for home I felt sad because I was quite excited for the India special. Well this one lacked the flow for me and the adventurism of the past episodes.

Hope that the next one will be better. Still ok somehow. They should've gone on one of those dangerous mountain passes in old cars and show more of the country. The challenges were missing and the food race was a bit stupid. If I get the chance will try and see if I they can win my heart over a bit more.
I know what you mean, it wasn't my favorite either, but after getting the DVD and watching it with commentary, I like it a lot more now. The DVD extras were good too.
Does anyone have a good explanation for why they took the train in the first leg of the journey? It's not like in Vietnam where they were behind schedule and I bet Clarkson was near death from riding that scooter for many days.
I hate spoilers more than I hate spoilers on anything with less than 600bhp.

Last years Christmas special had about 45 minutes of waste.
Bets on James crashing?

Hmmm not that great so far.
FFS Mexico isn't funny anymore, mainly because you pussied it at the time you short arse.
Who wrote the script, the Chuckle Brothers?
Its a bad version of Top Gear Ground Force, yeah I didn't think it was possible either.
Oh fuck you its not funny.

The worst thing I've ever seen, and I've seen Transformers 3.
Waste of 90 minutes.
I haven't seen this since, it was on Dave so I decided to try it again.

It's sad, because it's incredibly lazy.
