Any fans of this show on here? I never thought much of it until I started watching it on Dave and now I'm hooked on it

Hahaha like it DC

The interplay between the three presenters is entertaining and there's so many funny moments from all the series so far. Can't wait for it to come back in June

I think it's overrated - but I think that's just because I used to watch it quite a bit. It seems a bit samey to be honest :|
And James May is obviously the coolest presenter ;)

They've said that with budget cut, there are going to be much less of the challenges, and more of the car reviews. :( I like the challenges most.

Yep, but Clarkson had a classic idea of getting round this - sort of. To make every show in the series absolutely huge, really expensive challenges on every episode. And then make a really c**p last episode for about £1 to balance it all out!

Yeah that sounds like Jeremy Clarkson mentality

Some of the challenges were hilarious - I thought from the last series that the lorry drivers episode, the factual documentary re the muscle cars, and the economy drive from Switzerland to Blackpool were among the best bits. And that Vietnam Special was very good too

Yep they were all brilliant, the Vietnam special was excellent I agree, awesome scenery. Also the economy challenge, I cannot believe that Jeremy's huge Jag managed to actually get to Blackpool, what a hero of a car!

I missed the episode with the Marines the first time round but then caught it on Dave or maybe BBC Three/Four? It was excellent, I hope they don't have to really tone it down for the next series.

Yeah that was a funny one - I've only seen it on Dave or BTVision

Thing is the shows on Dave aren't full length as they have to be shortened for the ads. Least now they've started repeating them on BBC2 or BBC3. With the version shown on Dave, it doesn't show them trying to catch the tortoise for example

Thought it was funny when Jeremy put a dead cow on the roof of his car

:lol:

Haha yep, but think his claim that it was genuine roadkill was a bit dubious!

Yeah and spray painting Richard's bike pink and getting him a new helmet. And that USA bike was really inappropriate

Clarkson, Hammond and May should be given a huge budget, a few HD cameras, and be let loose upon the world and make whatever the hell they want and then release it. It's guaranteed it would be comedy gold and worth paying to see.
