But it's still the most popular programme on TV worldwide! I travel all over the world on business and whenever TV comes into the conversation I am asked "Do you watch Top Gear?" Love it or hate it, its a huge moneymaker for the UK.

I hate it. It is also a great moneymaker for Clarkson who owns the BBC rights for the program; how did he manage to highjack the program from the BBC? Originally, it was a 'motoring' program, now it is a light entertainment comedy show, and the other channels programs are no better. Surely there is enough sophisticated motoring content to put on at least one half hour program each week.

Best thing that happened when those three took over.
Even my Wife loves to watch this but would never watch a car show etc, just great entertainment.
So what how much they earn, better than garbage footballers!

I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

The Madness Continues.... strewth glad it is just Top Gear back on the air, for one awful moment I thought it was referring to the England cricket team playing another Test Series......


Cheers

Well, that's me put in my place! I agree about footballers though. Have a nice day.

Sorry it wasn't a dig at you at all, was just meant as a personal comment, sorry if it came over otherwise.

I don't look at it as a car show. It's just fun and entertainment. Just coincidentally cars are involved. ;)
If I want to get news about cars, I'll look elsewhere (different sources on the internet for example).

I have either had a senseofhumourectomy or TG has just fallen below the titter event horizon. I sincerely hope next weeks episode is an improvement.

Gave up watching a few years ago - sorry, I no longer find it entertaining just a means of massaging someones ego.

That apart Mrs Lincoln, did you enjoy the play

Not just you Mick, I found it wasn't particularly good. Same old staged jokes repeated again and again - new ideas needed.

Well, it wasn't as bad as expected after reading your comments. But it wasn't as good as expected before reading your comments either.
