So the latest quest for enlarged viewing figures starts on Sunday evening.

Doubt that I will bother to watch as it is a tired formula that ideally should be laid to rest.

I will leave others to make up their own minds.

Canít be bothered anymore. If you like the childish farting about with cars, the Amazon version with the real presenters is the better program and I canít be arsed with that anymore.

It was one of their biggest foreign earners when Clarkson and co were there. They must be crying into their corporate mugs over sacking them. Laughing

I never could stand Clarkson & Co. Evans milked the BBC and now the formula doesn't work.
(I should get paid for the following..)
What the BBC should be doing is grabbing a bunch of f*ckwits and putting them onto a boring straight laced show. Let them run riot, overspend budgets and drop some red filters onto grey skies. The viewers will love the carnage of a normal show being destroyed and the BBC will win viewers.
The 6 O'Clock News read by someone drunk, that sort of thing.
£5 please.

Oh - I'm now without a TV set or any other device that watches feeds. It's been the best thing I've done in 23 years.

Looks like loads watched it then?

Iím giving it a go on catch up. Same old tired ideas unfortunately.
Half an hour of the Yank and the Cypriot blokes with canned V12 and V8 sound effects, with camera angles of exhaust pipes, followed by half an hour of the black guy and the screaming German woman getting stuck in the mud in little cars.

Still, no white English males anymore so at least Al Beeb have ticked that box to ruin the show.

Has always been boring as shit, and, I suspect, always will be. I'd rather watch pingu, far more entertaining

Jog on if youíre not interested. I donít ask you to read or reply with your white noise.

Itís s topic about comments on Top Gear. I presume the shite I tried to watch is the new series which nobody had commented on.

Itís a perfectly valid post to make, sorry it didnít match your Al Beeb is great agenda.

Am I right in thinking that everyone got pissed off with the white English guy and so he got sacked after one season?

Pretty sure gingerist is a thing so bnp18 can jump on that bandwagon as well.

Or maybe it was to fully PC the program? Iíd hardly say the other presenters have been a hit with audiences.

It went from a multi million selling program with 3 non PC old white blokes, who got sacked by Al Beeb for not being PC enough for them, to a BBC picked team of presenters, which originally had the annoying ginger and the Irish gnome, who have now also gone.

Leaving us with an Al Beeb box ticking selection of the black guy, the Yank, the Cypriot and the screaming German woman. The show is bombing.

Maybe people preferred the non PC Clarkson to the box ticking Al Beeb selection?

Nope. Al Beeb have done that. Not a white English bloke in sight anymore. Coincidence, when it used to be centred around 3 white English blokes pissing about, who Al Beeb didnít find PC enough for their modern image?

Itís just another long term show ruined by BBC ďright onĒ
PC bollocks, much like Dr Who.

When Crinewatch had such good ratings, anyone want to hazard a guess as to why the politically correct BBC axed it?

He's barely on. Token does annoy me as he doesn't seem to have much of a motoring background and is generally a bit annoying, Harris does have a background in cars/racing and LeBlanc was obviously just to (try and) sell the show in the US.

GT did the same thing with 'The American', who they replaced with a woman no ones heard of whilst insisting she's the fastest Rolling Eyes At least Sabine actually has a reputation, mainly cos of Top Gear Smile but she can genuinely drive.

It just stinks like they ousted the old presenters for not being PC and replaced them with a multicultural cast, deliberately contrasting from its former image.

It now feels so fake, itís embarrasing. It was probably just as fake before, but without a clear Al Beeb agenda, it was easier to cover up.
