No idea what they're doing. Waste of time. Jenson Button lap & interview was good, otherwise pointless.

Car review, Button interview, and XMas gifts were entertaining / amusing. The rest was a bit shit really. Looking forward to next week though.

Good article in The Guardian about TG

Sums it up pretty well for me.

Finally, a good one. Sexy new Uber Veyron, Cameron Diaz, Tom Cruise not being a cunt and a proper segment on Ayrton Senna.
A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.

And not forgetting the touareg thing at the beginning. Yeah, it was a good one this week. :)

That was the only bad bit. It was the racing a supercharged 2CV against a panther on crack type things that made it shit.

This. I was hoping for at least a semi-serious (off)road test of the Touareg rather than yet another eye-candy-but-pointless "race".

The Ayrton Senna bit was ace. I'm not that into F1, plus he died when I was 6, so I had no idea what an absolute genius/nutter he was. And Clarkson's great when he's doing proper films on stuff he really cares and knows about.

Tom Cruise was annoyingly likeable too. Damn him.

I caught the Senna bit whilst flicking, and it was ace. If TG was like that all the time, I'd probably start watching again.

It was a good episode, the senna bit was good, but I didn't really like the Star in a Reasonably priced car. Clarkson was all snivelly and nice and also I call BULLSHIT on both of them being the fastest. I know they haven't had many people on yet but still, that's such a fraud.

Bull. Shit.

If you haven't seen the Senna bit then make sure you watch the repeat tonight. The show's producer was interviewed this morning and said that because of the cost of the rights they had to pay to show that, it will only be shown tonight and then never again. This episode will not go to Dave and if repeated on the BBC will be heavily edited.

I didn't catch it on Sunday but just watched it in HD on iPlayer and there was a large Senna segment.
