I totally loved the Vietnam episode. I agree that this series was way better than the spring one, and the Vietnam special was great. A good mix of their usual hillarious stupidity and actually being semi-serious. Brilliant.

It's always been scripted and structured, and nearly all TV is. I don't mind the fact that it's structured and planned, since Clarkson, May and Hammond all write it themselves; if there was no script, it would ramble and be filled with silences where the presenters don't know what to say next.

I know, but alot of it used to be improv when it first came back to air, but now its all too obvious.

I also dont like how they line the front row of the audience in the studio, with young women to attract more viewers. when they obviously no nothing about cars

Also the bit where they guy took the ford fiesta onto the battle field at some place with the boats and stuff and the guy said "Would you look at that? The smart grenades fit perfectly in the cup holder!"

Tehehe. Funny. Must watch that another time.

Yer that is my local shopping centre too, there were tyre marks everywhere after that.

Top Gear is top banter, my favourite episode has to be the American special.

Well, that's only happened very recently, and the audience members apply for tickets themselves on the BBC website, so even if they have no knowledge in cars, they're obviously fans of the show. It is BBC2's most popular programme, there will be a few hot women who like it.

The lack of improv I have to agree with, but the unexpected still happens, with the Cool Wall and the challenges aren't scripted, or have much more basic framework.

I loved the christmas car branded gadgets. I don't care if that was improv, or not improv. I was nearly on the floor laughing.

I love Top Gear. This series has been great. The Vietnam Special was amazing last night. I also enjoyed the HGV (First episode of the series I think) challenges and the Fiesta parts.

I really wanted Kevin McCloud to beat JK.


I was so hoping we would have knocked that wanker from the top spot. When Clarkson was reading out the time, I was like this:

Jeremy: "You did it in, one..."
Me: Well yeah.
JC: "Forty"
Me: Hmm
JC: "Five"
Me: *leans forward, almost touching the telly* WHAT?
JC: "Point nine"
Me: NO! So close!

Those islands at the end of the Vietnam special looked amazing. Jeremy's paddle-steamer had me cracking up too, partly in disbelief that it actually worked.

My favourite thing so far this season was when james may was driving with mika hakkinen.

james: Is keeping all my tools perfectly organized very "Swedish"?
mika: Yes...
james: I also like to keep all the vents in my car pointing the exact same direction. Is that "Swedish"?
mika: ..... no.

hahaha

I like the show, but sometimes the episodes are more about their personal lives than the actual cars.

The series in the spring was absolutely shoddy, but this series has really renewed my faith in it, brilliant programme. I'm becoming more tolerable of Jeremy as well, although May's dry wit still maintains him as my favourite.

Let them dream son. They've never heard of the 'Flying Finns' this is not the thread to introduce them.

I really want a bike after Vietnam as well, I've always secretly wanted one, but seeing that really sealed it for me.

Damnation, typical. Sorry Finns! I'm obviously just not watching enough rally.

Bikes are awesome for just going around doing stuff, but IMO, as a mode of day-to-day transport, not the best. A way better way to see a country (and it's views) than in a car though if you ask me. (Apart from the luggage aspect).

Yeah I think there's something really romantic about travelling on a bike, (the TG style ones not a Ninja), it's just the lack of protection in a crash that bothers me.

Not much you can do really, Dave's coverage is far from brilliant. Although it's good to see something on British TV. Youtube has some great onboards and shiz though.

Agreed. The Spring series, bar a few moments was almost trying to be as "Top Gear" as possible, and it didn't work.

Hmm, some people are ridicuolously stupid about protective gear, e.g. woman wearing summer dress on bike with nothing else (how stupid do you have to be?!). I like all types, but you're right, a Ninja isn't exactly going to get you admiring the views. I'm beginning to really love the old military ones now actually, ala Steve McQueen's Wehrmacht in the Great Escape, that being the only example I can think of right now, apart from Hammond's in Vietnam.

Hmm, there's a few random channels that seem to show bits now and then. Ah well, will just have to play the PS2 games.

From the few episodes I saw on the BBC America, it seems to be a good show.

I like the ridiculous challenges they do. Especially the one when they tried to build a cheap police car.
