Just watched the 1st of a new series...

"Pulling Power New series of the motoring magazine presented by Mike Brewer and Mike Rutherford, featuring a competition between the Range Rover Sport and Porsche Cayenne."

All I can really say is that Top Gear is safe for the moment.

Recycled top gear jokes (Did the voice controlled car joke, but Jeremy's Voice controlled Merc was far funnier and this guy just can't pull off indignant anger like Jez can.)

NO visual effects whatsoever (at least 5th gear tried last season)

Awfull sound quality (Just listen to the supercharger on this V8... cue an increase in wind noise and no supercharger whine)

Half hour show split for adverts.

A bit of product placement by Alpine stereos.

I don't know why I'm talking about it really, it was CRAP.

Anyone else in the UK see this ? (I'm not, but I got a big dish ) 8)
Hmm, what channel/time is it on? I never heard about it.
ITV 1 at 11:30PM

Just after "Baddiel & Skinner Unplanned"... now THAT was funny...

You mean you can get ITV on satellite? Hmmm, might have to fix my old dish cables and get a new digital receiver...
Can you tell me in which sat, or point me in the right direction?
I have their review of the RX-8, it's great, it's a bit old (2 years maybe) and it's a blonde woman who does the driving.

Camera job is on par with TG, superb image quality
