it started off slow, but some stuff stood out especially towards the end with the horse and james's high tent. originally the dvr showed it was 1 hr instead of the 1.5 hr (with commercials). so dvr cut the first 30min, but i was watching it at the time and didn't miss much. on these specials, eh i'm getting tired of them and still waiting for the us vs uk crews. i think it's time to have one already especially if they have to stretch out specials like these over 2 episodes. the australia one was soso with the main joke being the upside down cars. i would imagine the us stig stand in would be big stig.

Oh man, that was... watchable, I guess. I just feel like I've seen it all before, I miss Top Gear news already.

I can't believe they've done this again. A special is not part of the series, why make it so?

I think it's due to the amount of time they take to film and edit. I think we're looking at 3 months or so. Clarkson tweeted on Tuesday that they had finally finished it. I took that to mean that they had completed the voiceovers.

I just wish they'd given us 2 proper episodes and left the special for Easter or something, even if it was meant for Christmas. I just don't enjoy the specials nearly as much. :)

I get the feeling at least one episode of this series has been 'sacrificed' for one of the Burma Special parts.

Hopefully they'll make it up to us in June when we see the McLaren and he Porsche go head-to-head. :D
