    I thought it was really REALLY boring if I'm being honest!.

    Over scripted predictable dribble.

    I think this series has been the worst so far, eveything is so obviously staged to be stupid these days, tonights show was proper dull!

    Meh. It is what it is - easy watching. They're fairly constrained by health & stupidity these days...

    I liked it because Jenson was on there, and I liked the Countach bit.

    Is that the South American road trip? Agreed that will be awesome :)

    I didn't rate last nights much, maybe cos I slept through most of it :whistle2: I thought the museum bit, although mildly amusing at times, was a waste of time really.

    OMG i hate people that moan about it being scripted

    It's a fecking TV show! Of course it's scripted! Monty Python was scripted, Bodger and a**h**e'ing Badget was scripted!!!!!

    It's still one of (if not the best) show's on the TV at the moment, if you don't like it being scripted don't watch it, or at least, don't complain about it

    Some interesting reading...

    http://transmission.blogs.topgear.com/2009/12/20/series-14-where-were-at/

    The producer talks about some 'concerns' that the public have had. Maybe next series will be more 'natural'?

    I'm a die hard Top Gear fan but even I must admit, this series hasn't been the best. They've had some good bits done. I really liked the Lancia bit they did. But I'll always watch Top Gear. It's still good telly on a Sunday night IMO. Hopefully the little things will be ironed out next series, if there is one.

    I love top gear and I have to say I found Sunday's episode pretty rubbish!!! felt pretty disappointed and robbed that I had wasted an hour of my life watching what was my favourite show....

    Hopefully next week will be better.
