What a stupid ending, they had that glorious Aston V12 shoved in a tiny section at the end, while they dedicated a large portion of the show to a bloody Vauxhall!!! :rolleyes:

And that was the last in the current series. :(

The ending was pretty anti-climatic and had a "sad" feeling to it too.

Nice to see them talk about Massa and sending their best wishes though. :)

Another boring show. Top Gear has completely lost focus. Less arsing about and more car reviews, thanks.

There was a car review at the start anyway?

The new topgear has only ever been a tiny bit about car reviews anyway.

Which proves it's possible to review cars that most people will be looking at buying in a fun way. More of the same, please.

lol Top Gear stopped being about cars and turned into an entertainment program a couple of years ago now, Even though it has little to do with normal affordable everyday cars it`s still probably the best program on TV

It was amusing enough, but I was hardly in stitches. Sadly, too many people are easily pleased, liking Top Gear's pre-rehearsed jokes. But that is beside the point; you could put on a film, call it Top Gear, and still enjoy watching it. The fact of the matter is that Top Gear is meant to be about reviewing cars in a fun and watchable way. Instead, Clarkson and his acolytes have hijacked the show and are using their six-figure salaries (paid through our licence fees, by the way) to have fun.
