E05 was really good. More of a throwback to season 5/6 with the cheap car challenge but it was funny as hell and not too over the top. Solid classic TG.

I LOVE to hate Morris Marinas! But by far, the season premiere was one of their weakest episodes... They should have started with episode 2 with the trance music and all...

The series, finally, has gotten into the swing of it. I was worried that I might not laugh at all or actually be interested, and frankly it has been forced and contrived until now. E4 was breaking back, E5 is properly back to form. I loved it.

E4 would have been much better if they had all gotten in the car for the postal race. 4 door Porsche, so it makes sense, and I don't think they've ever done a trip like that before.

Agreed... only one I can think of where the three of them all do a trip in a car is in the Caravan Holiday bit (S08E06)

E06 was good too. The show seems to be back into the swing of things. Still no real gems like E01/02 of last season or the Vietnam special but at least we have some very solid episodes.

The other reason is that he's done several science type documentaries for the BBC, so this was just a one-off special in the same vein. His Big Ideas series is worth a quick search.

Well for one reason, he can actually fit into the cockpit.

If that were the sole criteria then the little hamster guy would have been sent although I'd have to agree with anyone who might suggest his history around jet engines isn't that reassuring. :eek:

Meh, James May = awesome and the more JM we see outside of Top Gear the better. He is becoming a fairly popular show host/presenter in general from what I've gathered.

I think I might see a hint of a back windshield. Lotus is still one of the coolest looking cars I've seen, used to have a electric RC one in college that they would race.

All this inappropriate bumping of the Top Gear thread is killing me. I keep thinking the show is back on, bastards.

I do approve of the Lotus though.
