  • Back to their old form in this best episode (so far) of the season.

    9.0
    It was wonderful to see this episode, as Top Gear seems to get back to their old form, with wonderfully entertaining installment. Here we see them review couple of pretty cool sports car with just an amazing film work. Loved the dinosaur bits! Yes a bit cheese and all that, but to a par that is what Top Gear is all about. We move on to just fantastic race and challenge, as the challenge is to bid for an old car at an auction. Not until Jeremy, James and Richard have completed that part of the challenge are they told that they have been singed up for the Regularity Time Trial Rally in Majorca.



    The assistant drivers they receive in Majorca help the comical factor of the whole thing and the race seems genuine enough, specially as they arrived over a day late, missing the actual start.



    The star in the reasonably priced car was entertaining and one of those few times you might actually want to hear an actual 'long' interview with the star.



    If I were to complain, which one must do in reviews, I will say that the only thing missing was a bit more insight into their changing of their vehicle (making them rally worthy), and they seemed to respect one another a bit too much this time around. Beside single incident they left each others car alone (might they just have enjoyed these relics too much?).



    Finally, even though the trio of our Top Gear presenters is the magic of the show, I must keep repeating that the actual filming and editing quality is a work rarely if ever seen in TV. The cutting and filming with the dinosaurs all came together in such way that you couldn't help but be clued to the screen. If I ever realize my dreams of becoming a producer, the film crew of Top Gear are they guys I'll hire!moreless
