Its about 12-13 pounds. I mean its fun to watch ONCE, it's top gear so can't be as bad as some other things that we have the privilege to watch. But still it's not something that I would watch over n over again like I do with other TG episodes. There's something that's missing, may be James May , It just seems as if they wanted to show many many nice and exotic cars and then they just tried hard last minute to build a story around it. I know that's probably what they do all the time, but this time the story seemed halfhearted and a last minute effort. Something is not right in my opinion.

The BBC just posted this teaser for season 21 of Top Gear. In classic Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson style, it’s not your normal type of teaser.

Season 21 Episode 1:

Overall a good episode, SIARPC was a bit boring but otherwise an enjoyable episode. Can't wait for next Monday!

S21 Ep 1 :
Top gear standards are falling. The last 15 minutes of the episode (after SIARPC) were absolutely cringeworthy. The more scripted it gets, the worst it becomes. What they should stick to is doing proper (TG Style) reviews of cars.

S21E01 was quite a 'meh' episode.
The hot hatch challenge was kinda lame, but SIARPC was quite fun.

JC tweeted on Sunday that the next episode will be more car-y. Checked the details on Wikipedia, and found out that next week's episode has the P1 AND the Alfa 4C, so should really fun!

In my opinion this was definitely one of the worst episodes every by Topgear and a worthy contender of the worst episode by any Television program worldwide.

The last part of the above sentence may be a little harsh, but I miss Top gear. I miss the time when they would have some genuine thoughts and rationale on the cars they would elect for challenges (The reasons may be strange but they had their case), I miss the beautiful drifts on various cars. I miss Top gear.

Seems like they have understood that one of the reasons that make the show popular is their ignorance, but to have ignorance and stupidity as the core of your shows structural design seems to be a disaster.

This along with perfect roadtrip has been time wasted. I want my 2 hours back!
