At the moment it's leading by a massive percentage, with QI, The Wire and The Office trailing behind.
although i enjoyed that one where they went to that place and raced the different things to the other place and then all did the jokey guffaws and arguing jaws back at the studio...vintage toppers.
It's rigged. It's a rat.
The Wire, Peep Show and The Office were all up front when the poll began...then came the social networking intervention.
P.s. I like Top Gear. I just don't like it nowhere near that much.
'' I actually enjoy Top Gear. I think they've succeeded in making an elitist car show format transcend it's origins and cast it's net alot wider. I think they deserve recognition and a Vegas sized BBC pay packet. I just don't think they deserve the accolade of best show of the decade when The Wire should have killed the competition.''
i just don't want anything that clarkson is involved with getting a 'best of the decade' award. seems slightly incongruous.
and it's as rigged as a baron cohen set-up
this is sad news
it's the west wing surely. Top gear viewers remind me of republicans...
which got highjacked by fans of The Fray.
Although to be fair we were trying to hijack it in favour of Fuck Buttons.
I get confused.
I love the show but didnt expect it to have like 30% of the votes :O
lacks all the heart, talent and craft that has gone into making some of those other show so funny/moving/thought-provoking/entertaining.
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Because, following the loss of test cricket to Sky, it's the only way I get to hear the delightful sound of leather on willow."
The lines shouldn't be blurred.
I love the camera work and editing of their reviews, but it's completely ruined by the scripted 'banter' of the three stereotypes that present it.
Richard Hammond cannot act, stop asking him to do it!
Jeremy: grumpy, stubborn, right-wing, hilariously has to have the last word and refuses to be wrong, likes blowing stuff up, etc.
James: "Oh, you kids and your facetube!" Yeah, we get it, dickhead. You're the old, boring, steam-engine loving engineering enthusiast who drives slowly.
Richard: "Did I mention I had a crash?" Housewives favourite, there to provide common sense, picked on because he's small, dresses for the midlife crisis, can't deliver a punchline.
No one cares who the Stig is and everyone's bored by your random introductions of him: "Some say he doesn't even buy shoes!" oh HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
The camera work is lovely though.
it grabs your fancy and shoves it onto the backseat of a Mondeo and finger it with an electric whisk.
anyone who votes for top gear over the office or flight of the conchords is very insane.
so my vote would go to The Wire - good haircuts all round.
which doesn't help their cause.
'Rock of love'????
Or 'America's Next Top Model'??????
