If you don't like something and therefore seemingly don't watch it, why are you commenting on it? The least you can do is watch the programme that you say is shit (though of course, if you think something was shit however many months/years ago that doesn't mean it's shit now). Feel free to make constructive criticism without making childish comments, if you watch it. If you don't watch it, you have no reason to comment on it, because you haven't got a clue as to what you're even commenting on.

It's all an act put on for the cameras. Would not make a good film if May did the job perfectly
Yes, James was putting that on, but god that was impressive watching that Bentley, especially as it was only on road tyres.

Loved it!
The rallying segment was brilliant and the P45 part was hilarious - I don't care if it's staged or silly, it makes me laugh and it's a good way to spend Sunday evenings

Didn't like the Dragons' Den part, you could see it was coming that everyone of them would turn him down. Although I think I'll pass on getting a P45.

Total and utter rubbish. Not what i'm paying my licence fee for.
Considering you're 15 years old I'm astounded you're paying your licence fee at all.

For probably the first time in it's history, the SIARPC was the best part.

So good to have TG back. Good episode and some laugh out loud moments. Poor Damian though.

No you pay for licence fee for the many excellent programmes and radio shows the BBC continually produces. TG is more than able to pay for itself many times over in terms of the income it produces for the Beeb, so don't you fret over your licence fee.

A very good start. My only gripe is that the p45 segment was too long and the Dragons den bit was silly and laboured.

The Kia looked a right handful in that snow, it's not the best handling car in the dry

I think you totally misunderstood what I said.

It's a licence fee per home. At 15 they're not exactly likely to be paying a licence fee.

So, I'm not fretting at all and don't have a licence to pay for anyway. Happy to clear that up for you.

Good show apart from the P45 segment running too long.
The P45 may have been meant as a joke, but if that was a joke what does that make the Sinclair C5?

Just watching the P45 V Dragon's Den.

Being an avid viewer of Top Gear and Dragon's Den, I'm falling about the place in laughter.

Top Gear at it's best - Taking the piss!

I was laughing so much that I'm sure my neighbours heard me. JC looked like Buzz Lightyear in the P45.

Awful P45 segment and rubbish banter aside, a fairly decent opener.

Impressive lap time from that Pagani, sub 1m14 time will be hard to beat by a car that passes their criteria of being able to drive over speed humps.

I was watching it on iplayer, and noticed that the dragons called the idea 'shit' Jeremy also gestured the 'Nescafé handshake' on the road... Was this aired before 9pm last night? If so how did they get away with it... I'm not complaining I enjoyed it, just seems close to the mark for 8pm on a Sunday night...

If it's so rubbish, why do you watch then? Find something better to do with your time.

It's not like all your license fee pays for is Top Gear.
I wouldn't watch it if it wasn't for the fact that my fiance likes to watch it, it's OK I guess, & last night's 'P45' thing did make me laugh more than any supposed comedy has recently.

Is the word 'shit' even offensive anymore?

Surely this depends upon the context?

For example, I consider myself a fairly articulate fellow, but whenever I see Tony Blair on TV (or many other lying scumbag politicians) I find that serious swearing is the most appropriate response.

Shit, in the context of Top Gear, was a descriptive used by Theo Paphitis, who probably thought he was being daring.

I don't know, I quite fancied the idea of bombing around north London in that

Really enjoyed that last night, the Dragon's Den bit didn't grate with me, but that's probably to do with me jumping over to Ripper Street a couple of minutes before the end.

I think I was expecting too much, especially as it has been a year.....

I thought they were going thru the motions a bit !

It was OK but I dont know just seemed to be missing something.

Right ingredients but wrong outcome.........

They dragged out that item too long, far too much of Hammond drooling over it and repetitive shots of it.
