Hmm, haven't seen TG for prob three years, though am interested in the hot hatch debate.

Having driven both incarnations of the 5GT Turbo, Mazda 323 4x4Turbo, Escort RS Turbo, Fiat Uno Turbo, Peugeot 205 GTI 1.6/1.9 (during the week preceeding 3/8/87, Phase 1 % earlier obviously) and reckon the Renault was by far the best - fastest and best handling. Not interested in build quality etc. Worst was RS Turbo by a long shot

But, I reckon Clarkson will say it'll be the VolksVargen Golf (it's not a VV, muppet), in which case I agree with the YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWwwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnn sentiment entirely

agree, a waste of one hour, that I could od done something usefull

Like sleep

TG should be aired at 1630 on any school night, as thats about were its humour and silliness belongs

Just when I thought that they couldn't get any worse, today's TG was the worst I've seen. Set the rest for a series recording and will be fast forward through the dross and wasting less of my life.

I usually enjoy topgear, I don't mind the sillyness usually, but tonights episode was one of the poorest I have ever seen. they ruined something that could have been potentially a very good episode had they picked out some nice examples and done some proper tests, but then I guess modern car manufacturers wouldnt loan them cars if the new model come out inferior in the drivability department

I reluctantly have to agree, I love Topgear, but tonights offering was very poor, no sensible bits at all, just a bit like Benny Hill without the fanny

To be fair to the moaners (I enjoyed it) is there anything else on at 8?

Like I said I usually enjoy it but tonight was just very poor. Let's hop next week is better, the trailers showed some good cars coming up, I really want to see the new Alfa having read about its carbon chassis and other trick bits, my heart is saying trade in the BMW. My head is saying keep it.

Actually I have about 300 channels and still can't find anything to watch, so like a few on here thought I'd give TG a go - for the first time in about 2 years. I didn't even know they had a new car for SiaRPC

However, most proper petrolheads wouldn't have had that Nova (cheap and slow), a Fiesta (just Ford fanatics) or a Golf (the misguided).

Buying a hot hatch was for the performance not because you were a fashion victim - the 5GT T, 205GTi or a Sunbeam Lotus

They couldn't win though, if they'd bought decent hot hatches (Which would have cost more money) people would be on here moaning about them ruining them.

Yep agreed, but they are adults so could treat good cars with a certain amount of respect otherwise Steve M comments about it being aired during kids tv in the afternoon become quite pertinent.

I would certainly have preferred to see some decent cars, rather than 3 piles which have probably already been weighed in.

I will always watch car shows because I like cars but the scripted mishaps in Top Gear in recent years are a huge negative in the same way that the scripted disasters and setbacks are in the car restoration shows.

Me also. It had the potential to be an excellent episode (I regularly go to tarmac rally events at Caerwent so was especially interested), but they made it far too silly.

One thing I did notice is that Clarkson seems to be looking considerably older than he did in the last series.

If it's so bad, why do you all bother watching it? It's not meant to be taken seriously, it's a light entertainment programme that just happens to include cars........ It makes me laugh more than most of the so called 'comedy' on the box at the moment. People should learn to lighten up a bit, life is too short for all of this moaning.......





Always biting off more than I can chew.....
