Now I for one love Top Gear and can't see why it would be just something to appeal to the sort of people The Guardian insinuates but I thought I'd put the question out there and ask you lot what you thought about the show?
The missions they get sent on are often hilarious and, yes, they can be a bit over-the-top and insensitive at times (well, Clarkson can) but it's entertaining.
> Oh, and Phillipa Forrester :)
In my "youth" ( well very late youth at that) I had a massive crush on her - but steer clear now to avoid ruining that beautiful memory (runs away as fast as I can before I'm killed!)
On the Top Gear theme the recent one where Jeremy Clarkson kept turning over a Reliant Robin was great, especially the one where he did it behind a BBC film crew filming a local news story and they ran like hell to "rescue" him :)
I'm a bit of a Clarkson fan and think they've got the mix of presenters pretty much spot on. While I agree that the show can only go on for so long now that it's an entertainment programme rather then a car one, I do hope it's not too soon.
As for saying a celeb is "slumming" it by appearing on the show... I was surprised to see Cruise on there, but he is a huge car fan, loves doing stunts and high octane stuff, and what's more high octane then thrashing a Kia around an airfield?
Just remember people that say this is slumming it - this show was voted the best show of the last decade recently.
Also, Craig Charles will always be Lister. FACT.
Oh, and Phillipa Forrester :)

I think I know the Razer guy you mean though. They had a grudge match with Pussycat on Dave yesterday (Pussycat won!).
*EDIT* Hypnodisc is probably up there with Behemoth aswell.
This is my favourite fight in the entire show. Hypnodisc is definitely the more exciting robot to watch.
Behemoth vs Hypnodisc (+ Dead Metal)
Was a shame when they first brought the refbot in, really killed off the brutality of the 'old' old Robot Wars.
