But this is great. Very entertaining.
There is no discussion.
This is the greatest thing BBC2 have ever done.
Best Episode ever. Good to see because last weeks were crap.
That was disturbing and brilliant.
The devastation in New Orleans was truly horrific to see.
and all its works. But I really enjoyed that. If only for the New Orleans stuff.
those shots of new orleans were heart breaking
and those rednecks were hilarious
it should win awards left right and centre
Does anyone know what the music played when they entered New Orleans was? A piano heavy track... can't recall the name of it. Ta.
I can't work it out either, and now it's gone out of my head, but I know I have it somewhere.
was it 65dos?
'Friend Of The Night' or 'Auto Rock'.
It's definitely one of them. Both are brilliant though.
Want a YSI?
like us they knew the comments would antagonise the rednecks, its just that they (and us) underestimated how misjudged it was...plus the classic stalling at the wrong moment...it was like a film
the ONE night i choose NOT to watch top gear.
Anyone know when its repeated?
the best bit was
Almost worth missing Bonnie Prince Billy for :)
The one time I work on a sunday night and it ends up being a great episode.
I'd been looking forward to it all day, and then at 8:13 we had a random power cut, so i missed it!
at this so many times last night. Bloody brilliant. BBC2 was ace last night.
I was rofling all over the place!
falling off the roof.. I guffawed.
First double post in ages.
It was a mental guffaw.
Why would it not?
Just in my head!
a hearty vocal guffaw.
You will do this one day soon.
I'll make sure you're not there.
Shouldn't you be on the bus to newcastle now?
No, bus leaves Newcastle at 1.45pm.
I gots time.
best thing on TV at the moment, and I have no interest in cars
especially the bit with the shower, which was awesome.
was great !!
slapstick - cow
Timing - stalling when rednecks were after them.
serious - the state of New Orleans 1 year later
repeated on weds is it?
the credits at the end featured Roscoe P. Stig and all the production staff had their first names changed to Billy-Bob.
they went to the US, and had to buy a car each for $1000 or lower, they all ended up with fairly shit cars, and had to drive from somewhere to New Orleans, accross a few states...
them having to camp (the only food they were allowed to eat was roadkill), Clarkson "found a cow" at the side of the road, strapped it to his car, and turned up with it, ermmm...being chased by hillbillys in Alabama, after defacing each others cars with slogans such as "Hillary for president", "man-love rules OK?", and "country and western is crap"
You really had to see it to understand how brilliant it was, but by God was it brilliant:D
I loathe Clarkson, but that sounds quite good.
on a track with alligators at the end!
cow was bloated to the point of being disgusting. The rednecks were, well, rednecks. The shower in the car looked awful. The whole thing was funnier than a dog on a skateboard
trust the Americans
I love the way how during the design process nobody thought to ask...
"where will all the water go?"
so much in ages.
the shower in the car was hilarious, somehow I don't think they meant it to be a fully working one or else they'd have got undressed no?
an utterly brilliant episode
