    It's just so tired. I watched it for the first time in a couple of seasons, and the most interesting thing about it was figuring out wtf Richard Hammond's done to his hair.

    I actually bought a car partially based on their recommendations a few years back, and you know what, it's great.

    But the show, it needs a complete reboot. Maybe JJ Abrams could replace all the ridiculous grading with some lens flare?

    Hah!

    Subaru Legacy Sport Tourer 3.0R Spec B.

    I'm just glad their engineering team are much better than the guys who come up with the names.

    I think they use the same naming department as Assos.

    So TG producers make enough money to have Bentleys as runarounds? Never mind reducing Graham Norton's salary or bashing Clarkson etc - can't we sack some of those cunts instead?

    Top Gear is a pretty good money spinner though, the uk show has been broadcast in over 100 countries, been franchised worldwide, several magazines are produced, there's DVD's as well - and until last November it's only been half funded by the BBC as Clarksonand his mates set up a production company. They still made a fuckton of cash before selling their rights to the BBC, it's not like some sort of money sink that out licence pays for to put people in Bentleys.

    I believe they said studio director.

    My late father in law was a BBC producer - one of the top ones in light entertainment by the time he retired. He did make very good money, but well deserved. The time and effort put into making shows - especially the live shows he worked on - goes way beyond a normal working week. It's all consuming during production runs.

    And you've got to remember this kind of position is a senior management role in any normal company. So why not get well paid? I certainly think the work of production members at the BBC should be well rewarded, certainly compared to the stupid sums paid to twats like Moyles who do very little of the actual work.

    I've never earned much money. But if I hadn't wasted what I had on booze, videogames and guitars - I could have a nice mid-range Porsche by now instead of a Citroen family runabout.

    I'm shocked and appalled that the studio director of an incredibly successful TV programme can afford a Bentley.

    They should all be driving clapped out Ford Fiestas, the cunts.

    Such a weird issue to take.

    It's not even like Bentleys are uber cars. You can get a Continental GT with about 5K on the clock for 50k.

    Successful man drives nice car shocker.

    And that bloody clarkson, always going on about how they stick film crews in range rovers... put them in a 20 year old vitara, for fucks sake.

    And I bet they use really expensive cameras to film all those fancy cars. They should just use the camera on an iPhone or something.

    There's a nice camo painted one just put up in Autotrader, Manchester area. Low mileage town runs only, smells quite strongly of piss though.

    They should use the camera on my old N73. They'd get the vaseline smeared blue speckled filter effect they like so much for free then.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    My brother in law is a radio producer. He works long hours. Many presenters do not.

    Clarkson finds an excuse to get his car into the show again, and to pretend that its problems are completely new to him!

    Still, I like the races.

    He's just called himself 'a european'.

    He's ageing.

    Zzzz. On the big race episodes I wish they'd can the interview bit. Totally ruins the flow of the show.

    ;-)

    Clarkson drove very close to my house in France - I had sympathy for his whinging about the jams, but I get that several times a week. Anyway, goodish episode I think.

    I enjoyed last nights episode but i agree with you guys.
    Get rid of the star in a reasonbly priced car. Unless they are actually car fanatics and a bit interesting of course like Jay Kay or Rowan Atkinson. But that bint they had on last night was just embarrassing to watch.

    Who the hell was she?
    And the audience could barely even muster up a "Yeahh" when Jezza asked "who wants to see the lap". Even the studio audience were yawning when she was rambling on.
    It was quite possibly the most boring, dull, unknown guest they've ever had.

    Still would though.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Having an opportunity for some celeb to come and plug whatever they're up to seems like it must be quite important to the show somehow, although I'm not sure how seeing as they're not going to be dependant on advertising revenue like non-BBC shows would be. It's an odd one.
