Sorely disappointed with the first two episodes this series.  IMO it's been going downhill for the a while now.

 

I just don't find it funny any more.  Hammond *really* irritates me now for some reason, and everything about it is predictable.  I'll still watch it, but if there's a power cut at 8pm I'm not going to go barmy over "the one $@#%ing thing I wanted to watch!", like I might have done a couple of years back.

Got to agree with you I am also very disappointed with the last few seris. It has certainly become a lot more predictable and boring.

I agree aswell it has become predictable but I do not find it anyless entertaining. I find each season have become shorter and shorter with no christmas 2 hour special. 5 episode for the entire year is lame

I find it better if you look at it as being a bit of light entertainment. Rather than a factual car show. 

Definitely not as good as it used to be though.

Jeremy Clarkson Tweeted the Christmas special was taking longer than usual, so will be out in march. But it's coming! The '80s hot hatch challenge was brilliant I think. Even though James got an XR2i and not an RS turbo... ;)

I'd admit that its become repetative with what they come out with but look how long they've been doing this , theres only so much you can get out of a car programme and I think its the best car programme still.

 

Agree'd its not got any more boring but when they do give it up will be a bit of a shame from my own opinion.

Well, there's only that and 5th Gear.  Hardly stiff competition.

They did like the Fiesta.

I still like the show but think the format needs to change as we have all got so used to it. But £17k is a ridiculous price for a small car.

Think of top gear more of an entertainment show than a dedicated car show. If you want serious car stuff not dull like 5th then chris Harris on /Drive from YouTube is the real deal hands down a true leg end

For 17,500 that better have been a Titx with all the options Richard was driving. James blunt gave me an opportunity to dive into twitter too... So that was my ad break...
