Dude, get with the program.

A classic episode? Transmission – BBC Top Gear

Nice episode, but I'm getting a littkle tired of the challenges. For once, I would like some more cars to be reviewed on the track with some races.

James May's co-driver was hot though. That and the rally cars were enough to make sure that the episode was not disappointing!

I loved the Nissan 370z, right from the color, the smart gearbox and not to forget - the price!! But the 'new' Top Gear doesn't do the full-fledged car reviews like they did before.

Also, the auction bit of the episode was something new. The Porsche exhaust notes from the rally were pure music to the ears. And who'd miss the Miss ?!?! James is one hell of a lucky old bloke. Apparently there are rumours that he is indeed dating Madison Welch.

OT - He's 46 and she's 19.

He's dating someone else, a ballet critic or something.

watched the show today, The challenge was boring except for that chick

Rest episode was good especially the Z4 & the The celebrity guest(Rock Band AC/DC's lead singer) who clocked such an amazing lap time at the age of 61

Brian Johnson at his best love the man's vocals and now a fan of his driving too.
@61 he just released a new album helluva guy(not to forget angus young also).
Burning Alive Baby (AC/DC Fans will know better )
love in the change in theme of the testing scene in the start. All that Dinosaurs and all were pretty innovative

I am not liking this season that much. It does not hold your attention as the earlier seasons.
The challenges are drab, and the supercar tests have lost their zing, the craziness is missing.
I think Season 10 was one of the besT!

Of course, Its the recession. whenever anything goes bad or quality goes low, the only possible causes are
1. Foreign hand
2. Recession
3. George Bush
4. Oil

But some say, Jeremey Clarkson is growing old..... and when he sneezes part of his brains keep falling out, and his intelligence gets lower with each sneeze
