  • A prime Example of why I watch this show.

    Top Gear was pretty much back to it's normal self this week. With a hilarious Race across Japan!

    The good stuff: The show was basically all about the race.

    We'll start off with Jeremy: In Japan not only do you have to have a picture of the license plate but also a picture of the driver. Jeremy though found a way around this. By getting his very own Bill Oddie mask! He made friends with his Sat-nav (AKA: Amy) but was held up when she turnt off. He ended up winning the race by approximately Seven minutes.

    James and Richard: They kept getting "looks" from the Japanese for using their mobile phones on public transport and it was very funny when James left the train and Richrd stayed on; thinking it was the right one. The best bit was when he realised this, which had Jeremy in stitches. It was also very humourous that they couldn't work their Japanese translaters. Nothing else really happened with these two.

    The bad stuff: Only one bad thing to report, the Stars in a resonably priced car. They always seem to be from the BBC. MAybe Top Gear are short of guests, if they are, they shouldn't put this segment in!

    With help from Jeremy here's my favourite line

    Jeremy: (pointing at Bill Oddie's mask) He can spot your Beaver from a Mile away.

    I'm sure the definition of a "beaver" isn't needed!moreless
  • This show is getting to its best again.

    The last series was not that great in my opinion but so far with the first four episodes of this series I think it has improved, they are startng to concentrate on the cars more and not on there ego's. I really enjoyed this episode and think it was the best episode of the series so far, the races are always great and this one was amazing, Japan looks a crazy place to go, the trains were so cool and I thought it was hilarous when Rischard missed the Train. The stars were ok this week but the track was really wet so I think that was a bit unfair.

    All in all great episode, and I cant wait for next weeks.moreless
