Meh. This episode was saved by the last film. I was grinning all the way through. The rest of the episode - apart from Jeremy's Jag review, which was only OK - left me completely cold. 5/10 (Without the final segment I dread to think.)
They could IMO made much more of the British film. A whole episode? Maybe, maybe not. But certainly more about the history, involvement with other countries/companies. Then it would have been a 10/10. A 'not arsing it around' special.
Oh, and Mr he-he said that Webber should have taken the bus for a lap around the track.
EDIT - I know I'm a fangirl (albeit normally a Wilman fangirl) but WTF was going on with Hammond's hair in the last segment???
Seemed like a good episode, all three with solid independent segments until the UK car gathering, though they didn't really get together much for that either. One odd thing that stuck out for me was the person laughing 'yuk yuk' when Jeremy drew the face on his thumb.
Last bit was OK (yet a bit cheesy) (and did anyone else see the IRONY of TG doing a circlejerk on great British car industry and the next programme afterwards is about German cars? ), should have had a bigger part in the show. The Bus bit...funny for a minute, then quite boring. The Range Rover Sport....I wonder if that was one of JLRs test tracks, as it seemed perfectly fit for the RRS's capability...and that an AWD supercharged V8 beats a hot hatch on a high speed circuit is not really a suprise . Webber was in my opinion even more arrogant than Vettel, I was so happy Lewis still is faster, his smug showing off while driving was just pathetic.
The Jag and Range Rover segments were good, but very 'typical' of what the guys have done before.
I always wondered why there were those styling 'blisters' on the bottom of the doors on the Rover Sports, and thought at least they are on the door instead of on the sill, making your legs filthy as you get out (valet parkers need clean slacks as well.)
The trunk on the Jag may not have much storage space, but damn that thing has a great ass!
I wish the line of cars had more airtime to be gone over, but i've seen the lineup before from fan vids.
I'm finding the Torrage and magnet links not connecting to peers, Zoink 720p link works fine though. Hmm.
Range Rover was ok
Bus yeah... I don't know, could have been shorter
SIARPC, Webber, nice guy, 0.2 behind lewis, wow that was close
Jag, WOW what a car! that sound, that styling!
British bit at the end was okay-ish, they could have said more about certain cars/vehicles
but after all a very very good ending for the season, 9/10
