I thought it was very good englandwave

Rory Reid and the Star in the Car - now long gone (for the better!) wine

I liked the Northern twang too, so much better than BBC home counties "language/jokes".

Freddie Flintoff - star of the future...

Yes a big improvement, but still some over acting and Paddy may get on my nerves if he doesn't calm down.

The first new series programme did amuse me. As MDS61 stated it is so much better without Rory Reid. He was cringeworthy and animated.

Umm, well I fell asleep half way through. Not sure I can be bothered to watch the second half on iplayer...
I would agree that the new presenters are an improvement, from what I did see smile

It's early days, I recorded it and then skimmed through it and probably watched around 15 minutes of breathtaking scenery in Ethiopia which eclipsed the talent for me.

Anyone else bored with the supercars being thrashed up and down an airstrip ?

Yes, I am. also the mindless quoating of numbers for the different models of supercars.

I saw Flintoff yesterday getting into a Rolls Royce up near where his mum and dad live just North of Preston

A return to the childish nonsense that made the early days of TG.
100% better than the Chris Harris / Matt LeBlanc period.
Still superficial fluff, but harmless entertainment based about cars.

Oh - there was a new one ? Hard to tell among so many repeats from the BBC. Off to iPlayer then.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.
