much more of what top gear should be, not quite perfect but a lot better than a lot of last seasons attempts at incrediblypoorly acted comedy routines. great to see the race, at least its relevant, not entirely, I mean not many people would try and do that route by whatever means possible, but at least its relevant in that it features the effectiveness of ordinary means of transport in an ordinary situation.
the highlight has to be the stig on publc transport, like its a strange new world, which it probably is, which makes it more amazing that he has an oyster card. definitely the tv revelation of the year for me. must have been hard for the bbc though in terms of getting permission for the stig to be the stig, since i'm sure for security reasons you're supposed take off anything that would conceal your face, muslim women excepted, and the same goes for that race up to knockhill a couple of year ago with the petrol station for the same reasons, so that you can be identified if commit a robbery or some other crime. with the show returning to form, its nice to see some form of relevancy restored as well without sacrifice of entertainment.
