Top Gear is popular because is a comedy show. There are a lot of car shows around. A comedy show is made by the comedians.

The point is that it is the most watched TV show in the world for a reason and that is the chemistry of the presenters. As soon as you lose that, it will just become another show. Once that happens they won't have the massive budget that allows them to do the over the top episodes and it will just die.

Or the three of them will simply start up on another network.

Does Simon Scowl possess any sense of humor at all? I think our own J Briggs would make a good replacement.

Too short. They already have a vertically challenged presenter.

iTunes just refunded me 7.50 as the remainder of my season pass because the series had "less episodes than anticipated." So at least Apple thinks this season is truly over.

Hopefully the stuff they have already filmed will be released at some point.

Perhaps the mods should undelete the threads you requested deleted. You are a piece of work my friend, denial isn't a river in Egypt. Now back to the subject at hand, Jeremy Clarkson and Top Gear not Shayne Young and his newly acquired 110.

I think the Jeremy is also condescending but I can respect that since he appears to have no respect for authority. I suspect that many Defender owners are also disrespectful of authority. Otherwise they would be driving sedate sedans from suburbia.


Top Gear is unique in that I think it brings the top end cars down to the level that anyone who enjoys cars can understand and be entertained. They have their guests drive an everyman's car to compete in time trials. They test exotic cars in away we would all love to drive them and then they take these exotic cars into environments and beat them up. I think the show levels the playing field for those who love cars regardless of their economic status.


They also say outright how they feel about the cars. None of these polite reviews like on Motor Week where all cars are fine. On Motor Week they never say that the car stinks and no one should buy it. The test drives are so bland.


My only criticism of Jeremy is that I wish he didn't go off the deep end and destroy the show. His ego may have got the best of him.

You keep Hammond and May as the only presenters and Clarkson comes in once or twice a season as a co-presenter/guest or on their road trips.
