I cant believe I am saying this, I am officially bored of clarkson! he is too predictable and repeats his gags/lines too often :( come up with something new jezza!

May anyday! The only reason I am still clinging on to TG since the last 3-4 (or even more perhapsm, I cant actually remember) seasons.

been watching Top gear since its old format so that make me a real long time Fan. I've seen him change through time and I know he repeats his gag lines but then, this show is still better than fifth gear in some ways.
fifth gear is really the only other credible show to watch.

I have watched old format TG too during my school days, I still think he should come up with some new things. I am not asking for a total revamp!

Yes, FG is awesome too have watched every series till date!

I don't think they telecast the latest episodes of top gear.

Finally saw the whole thing. Ep 2, definitely. more of cars, less of video dhinchack. I don't want it to be bone dry like Fifth Gear, but in Ep 1 they were definitely overdoing it, I'd had enough of the boxer in no time. The second episode was IMO the way TG should be. Lots of car, enough hee haw's and less of redundant video effects.

Episode 2 : Classic Topgear stuff. Did anyone else feel that the Stig's german cousin might actually be a female ? (Sabine Schmitd/z?)

Finished watching the second episode today, thanks to FinalGear - liked it much better than the first one.

I think the Stig's German cousin was Tim Schrick, or maybe they took the real Stig and stuck the mullet to make that joke.

downloaded the HD version of EP 1 (3.5 gb). Visually fantastic. Lovely editing, content could have been better.

The chemistry between the 3 seems to be dying now....

anyways it still is the best car show by far.

now put ep 2 for download

cheers,

Just finished watching Top Gear 15X03.

the lads get to fool around with the Quattroporte, Aston Martin Rapide and the Porsche Panamera.

and Stig is now officially allergic to Rubens Barichello.

Episode 3

This is one mind blowing episode. Cars, Cars and Cars.

Fantastic shootout of rapide, panamera, maserati.

My favs - camaro ss and e63 amg is featured too.

Rubins Barichello appears on TG and he makes Stig sweat, which means, Stig hates him for what he has done. No i am not revealing anything. watch it for yourself.

The cinematography is very good in this episode like always.

Watch it for sure, you won't be disappointed.

I liked the comparo of the 4-door 'supercars'. And I couldn't have agreed more with Clarkson. The Rapide is too expensive for what it delivers while the Panamera is fast but hideous looking. Ironically, it's not the Aston but the Maserati which is the perfect combination of Power, Beauty and Soul
