The New Top Gear - The 2 Episode Test
Grumpyclown

Normally people talk about a 4 episode test for new shows - but I feel the truncated length of Top Gear series, ( usually 8 episodes ), means making you're mind up quickly could be important.

Clarkson raises more complaints for BBC

Joke about truck drivers and prostitutes doesn't go down well as new series of Top Gear starts.

Days after Russell Brand and Radio 2 boss, Lesley Douglas, resigned over complaints on a BBC radio show, the BBC are facing another barrage of criticism for overstepping the mark when it comes to comedy. So far, the broadcaster has received 517 complaints about remarks made by Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson regarding lorry drivers murdering prostitutes.

The comment was made during the first episode of the twelfth series, broadcast on BBC2 last night, in which Clarkson and his fellow presenters learnt to drive heavy goods vehicles.

"This is a hard job and I’m not just saying that to win favour with lorry drivers, it’s a hard job," he said. "Change gear, change gear, change gear, check mirror, murder a prostitute, change gear, change gear, murder. That's a lot ...

The American Version of Top Gear Looks... Okay?
We thought it would totally suck, but History Channel's domestic take on the UK hit actually looks like it might be watchable.

Dear Top Gear, Please Don't Stop The Carnage

When it was cancelled in 2001, Top Gear was a dreary product reviews show watched solely by dull dads. But a year later, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond (James May didn't join until 2003) rebooted the show as a vehicle for their hell-raising. Usually, that means exterminating Volvos, or violating innocent motor homes in front of a five-million-strong audience.

Series 15 begins this weekend (8pm, Sunday 27) and the buzz is that Clarkson, May and the tiny Hammond man might be about to unleash an all new, offensively toned down Top Gear. "[Expect] a slight retreat from the Last of the Summer Wine tomfoolery," James May told the Radio Times. If he's not kidding, (alas, we weren't able to get an advance copy to check for ourselves) then prepare for a drawn out on-screen suicide.

Here's an idea: Why not simply scrap the show in style ...

BBC car-fetish show being driven across the pond to US by NBC; show features latest car tech, celebrity guests.

Top Gear to drive on other side of road

Under its new management, NBC has been reviving and repurposing shows at breakneck speed. Bionic Woman, American Gladiators, The Office, and Knight Rider are all based on previous ideas with many coming from the thumbs-up of NBC Entertainment cochairman Ben Silverman.

That trend is continuing with Top Gear, the BBC hit all about car culture. NBC has ordered a pilot of the reality series, the British version of which is currently available in the US on BBC America.

The show's format "fits perfectly into NBC's line-up of programming with male appeal," according to Silverman, with peeks at all sorts of vehicles with any number of wheels, the occasional death-defying stunt done by the anonymous test-driver known as "The Stig," and humorous dialogue.

The UK version of the show is hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, and was one of the most pirated shows in the ...

Top Gear Ends on a High

Before this season of Top Gear began we were teased into thinking it would be losing its elaborate edge. It was difficult to believe, considering they've been saying that for years--and never acted on it. Turns out it wasn't true this time either. In fact, everything we love about the motoring show remained, and in parts it's even improved.

It's not easy for a show to last for fifteen seasons and still be entertaining, but Top Gear has managed it. The latest season, which ends this Sunday on BBC Two at 9:30pm, has provided the same levels of tantalising banter and ridiculous assignments that we've come to expect (and love) from the series. Admittedly, some of the tasked scenes were over-acted and obviously staged, as they have been before. Richard Hammond's man-made "motor home" setting alight and then harbouring lost sheep was definitely ...
