    That was an OK episode of Top Gear.I don't really like Lewis Hamilton and I don't like the way Clarkson worshiped him. The best part was watching Clarkson's face at the end with the BMW, I've never seen him so scared!! The rest of it was pretty average I think, the news was nothing special. The old car segment was slightly boring and the road test of the Vauxhall was also just average. Richard driving the F1 car was kind of pointless

    I haven't seen it yet, my flipping American flatmates took over the living room to watch some bloody chick flick
    Come back later to get the definitive RoboAmish verdict

    I personally thought it was a great episode of top gear! the item about the old cars was funny, though i don't really care which car first had the modern lay out. james blunt was surprisingly funny and lewis hamilton was brilliant, as was his lap! he's the 3rd fastest man ever to go round the track in the reasonably priced car and he was randomly singing to himself! the funniest thing tho was Jeremy in theBMW screaming BREAK!

    I loved it. While it was a bit short on segments, (thanks to the two stars) it was still really good. Hamilton was amazing, Richards segment was interesting, the history of cars was something different, and even James Blunt was surprisingly funny.

    The Monaro review was good, though he was a little dismissive of it lapping almost as fast as a 911 Turbo, and the BMW was astonishing.

    I thought this was average too, I was pleasantly surprised by James Blunt's banter, he was quite funny, but my attention wandered through most of this one, and that's a good indicator of how interesting I found it.

    The Formula 1 car section, the racing driver etc. were a bit dull.

    It was enjoyable. Nothing special but it had its moments, namely the final segment which was done to perfection. James Blunt wasn't bad either, surprisingly
    8.5/10

    Please tell me that this isn't the last season. I am a bit worried that it might be because of the summary on episode 10. "In the last episode of the series?" Please tell me it isn't so.

    Top Gear is a British programme - in Britain, we refer to a 'series' and not a 'season'. We don't have a 'season finale', either.
