New series starts tonight. Is anyone still watching it or do you all think it's become too scripted and a mere shadow of it's former self?

I still watch Top Gear, and I'll no doubt end up watching it tonight. I don't really expect much from the show any more, so sometimes they can surprise me. It's still worth watching, though.
Victory is just a prelude to the next battle.

Nope. I hate cars, massively polluting things that they are. They're a necessary evil more than anything else. Any show that glorifies them is abhorrent to me.

I'd buy the thirstiest Range Rover there is just to p**s off environmentalists. As for the programme, can't stand it. It's the 3 oafs (is the plural of oaf oaves?) that get to me. Well mainly 2 of 'em. Clarkson and the short arsed one.

The only thing I'm watching on television is Top Gear and F1 races. TG is a great show, 3 old fools messing around in fancy cars while insulting each other.

How can a men hate cars? Mengina .

Top Gear used to be good, now they just act like caricatures of themselves, especially Jezza.

In saying that, I did watch it on Sunday, well, I say I watched it. I Sky+ it and fast forwarded it until it got to the new Jaguar E Type. Wacthed that segment and then deleted it, dreading the fact that they are going to have a part to play in Forza 4.

Ah, it's not a patch on the older shows these days but I still think it's watchable. It's still better than 90% of the shite that's on Telly these days!

The Aston Martin Virage, the gayest car EVER driven. Oh, look. I'm a Brit and I'm driving a Virage. Let's throw my arms in the air like a complete tool so the whole world knows what a t**t I really am!

I'm an idiot, I'm Bono, I deserve absolutely everything that is coming my way! Destroy me, cos I totally deserve it! 8)














I'd actually quite like one!

It looks stunning, and I'll never be rich enough to buy one so I choose to be jelous and petty about them!

I think the Aston Martin is the most beautiful car ever. When I win the lottery and I know I will, I'll be buying one. I will then tell her to pack her bags. She will ask where we're going and I'll tell her that I'm not going anywhere just pack your bags and f**k off!
As an aside, my eldest neice's hubby is a solicitor. Nice bloke despite his scumbag profession and he's just taken delivery oa an Audi R8. Lovely car and he's letting me take it for a spin this weekend (wadda f**king dope!) but it is far gayer than my Virage.
