Question raised on another page.

What do members think.

I stopped watching ages ago,it seemed to me to be a show about one man's ego.

Maybe a poll?

It's basically just three blokes having a laugh doing stuff that is vaguely to do with cars.

I still watch it because it's entertaining - It has some funny, some insightful, and a lot of "Oh my god what bunch of an idiots!" :lol:, although it's a bit annoying it's only like, 6 episodes per season now (Seriously, what's up with that?!)

The more serious side that Old Top Gear did is what 5th Gear now is.

Should it continue ?
Wye aye its the `Last of the Summer wine` on wheels and always a miss when a series finishes.
They`ve had some really great specials, once in a life time experiences and getting paid for it. :)

If there is one program I really cannot stand, it is "Last of the Summer Wine" as it happens.

Top Gear gives me the same feelings and I very rarely watch Top Gear due to the 3 Egos presenting it.
If only Rory Bremner Rory McGrath joined them, it would be perfect as would give one place to avoid them all.

Edit: got my Rorys mixed up!

This was posted to see what peoples opinions were,not to slate members who you seem to consider morons because they do not agree with yours,Jed,mate

Tell me I am wrong on this and that you posted it as your kind of Joke

Differences of opinion can lead to many things, some of which lead to a lively debate.

That was my reason for posting what I did.

Stopped watching it when that over inflated egotistical ****** suggested that my family watch me being shot by firing squad

I don't think he suggested a whole firing squad - that would have been a bit over the top!

Seriously though, it is entertaining, in a brain out, very un-PC, way. I went through the "I wouldn't watch that crap" phase but I'm older & dafter now and can appreciate irony so much better......

Good point - However, I find Top Gear more and more irritating as as I get older and dafter I find stupidity and idiocy so less entertaining

The only good thing about Top Gear is that I understand it is a new earner for the BBC, so while it stays that way, let it continue (long as Rory Mcgrath AND the entire cast of all the 'reality' TV shows join - now that is a program I really WOULD pay NOT to watch)
