What a FREAKING BLOODY AWESOME epsisode! One of the BEST ever if not THE BEST!

Excuse me for the caps, but I'm on a romanian high! What a road, what cars and what cinematography!

Eric Bana was awesome as well. Loved the humour with the Dacia Sandero! Simply awesome! They didnt put a foot wrong at all!

The only sad part the way I see it: How in heaven's name are they going to continue this kind of awesomeness in the rest of the series?

PS: I would like to know if they REALLY slept in their cars, if they REALLY crashed the Lambo(I doubt the crash. I think it was staged) and if they REALLY just kept running into the Sandero. I feel the Sandero was part of the plan from the beginning.

I feel the coverage of supercars in romanian tour was a bit low. It was more of a tourism show, than car show.

Fantastic episode. Saw it right now but I still feel the earlier Stelvio Pass one was better. I have watched it numerous times and I haven't yet got bored of it

Default Whats coming up !

A blog post by Andy Wilman reveals whats in store for series 14
More New series: the detail Transmission Ė BBC Top Gear

Highlights:
Episode 2 : the boys build their own electric car, little bit of magic happens when theyíre all together in one car

Episode 3 : which car company made the greatest number of great car, show three is a bit geeky, and to balance that out weíve got Jamesís Caravan Airship film, which will take an exalted place in the pantheon of Cutting Edge Cocking About.

Episode 4 : Clarkson in Belfast with the Twingo, doing his road test in the sewers, in an ice hockey match, trying to catch a ferry thatís left, AND airport vehicle race.

The Christmas Special in South America

And they are still filming the rest of the series, so no montage in the start of episode 1.

It did look staged and I guess a healthy part of whatever they do like the roads they take feel like they are staged.

It was a good first episode with some nice visuals.

Am sure very few base their buying decisions based on their insane reviews and comments.

Just saw it online. Amazing episode as always. Liked the bit about underground tunnel under their parliament as well the Transxxxx Highway. But I still feel the Stelvio pass was better.

I wonder if we can ask them to come to India and do the Manali - Leh roads. may be rip on the Morey plains. Take shortcuts on Gata Loops and climb Chang La on short cut

I'd like to get a closer look at the Gallardo's front end. In some scenes, the number plate seemed a bit off, and in other scenes it looked quite alright. Anyway, it was a fantastic first episode! Although I wonder why we didn't get a trailer/teaser clip in the beginning. The 11th, 12th and 13th season came with those trailers!

i personally feel that the creativity had dropped, when one compares season 13 and 14 with the earlier ones. Also the antics of the boys have gone down. They no longer are much fun to watch as they were earlier. JC also seems to have toned down a bit...looks like age is catching up with the boys.

Was not tremendously impressed with season 14 - episode 1. Except for the flying skills showcased by the guy flying the helicopter.

Attached a few pics of the tremendous flying talent.

Check this guy flying next to the cars
