    Just been watching the first episode of season 21 and kind of wish they would so some car stuff. The scripted set sketches they have done for the last few seasons are starting to get a bit boring....

    I think it's great but you can't take it seriously.

    It just about comedy now not cars.

    It's entertaining enough to watch, but I think my 16yr old son enjoyed it more then I did.

    I am curious where they got the supermarket from though.

    HT is bang on. I said this to friends 2 years ago and again last year. So far I haven't changed my mind. Please get more car stuff or BIN it.

    Top Gear is so juvenile, it should be shown on CBBC :p

    Or watch 5th Gear on Discovery Channel, with them + Jason Plato

    Episode 2 is on soon, and I'm hoping it will be better than last week!

    Another excellent episode, really love the intent of the P1, but don't like the car

    P1, yes that's where I came in so can't comment yet on the rest of the programme. Been out to son's for tea. Quite like the McClaren

    Fully agree Zedonist, the show seemed to be back to normal business this week! Loved the P1 segment, but I still think it's wrong for something that good looking to sound like a milk float when it goes past...

    Also enjoyed the piece on the military vehicles. It's much more comforting to know our troops now have the correct vehicles to do their jobs :)!
