If you don't like what he does you don't have to watch it.
Exactly. I'm not a particular fan of either programme but then again I suspect the target audience is 14 year old boys, I know my nephew loves both shows.

Lets not get too critical here, next you will be saying that Top Gear is not a factual motoring programme.

It's just entertainment

Exactly. The OP was made not to promote BG, but rather because it nicely showcased a friend's rib and my favourite stretch of coastline . However, seeing as we're working up a nice lather getting the boot into Bear, I'll add my size 10:

That dead sheep was planted by the crew - Boo! Cheat!

Whats happening today boss? "You see that big feck off rotten sheep that looks like its been round the block a few times? Your going to carry that to the middle of no where so some one else can stick his arm up it".

Bollocks to that for a life.

Top gear, its factual. If you go round corners to fast with a caravan they'll tip, as will double decker buses!

I don't.

Of course he may be just acting, playing a part for the camera. Down at the Spar in Abersoch it's possible he's nowhere near as irritating as his screen persona.

I wonder, does he ever cook the food be buys from Spar?

I was at the Nurburgring a couple of years ago & my instructor told me all about the Top Gear challenge in the Jaguar diesel. Bad news I'm afraid Mr C didn't do it in the time he said.

Like I said it's just entertainment.


BTW I met BG at Ribex this year. I have to say that he is much smaller than I imagined. After a couple of Ciders I reckon I could have him
