Anyone else think Topgear will be complete gob****e without Jeremy? Watch
Because going to civil court is something everyone is willing to risk?
The worst case scenario for non-payment of the license fee would be a much reduced fine.
I think there would be enough people willing to test case it, and whatever boundaries the test case established might well be pushed by forthcoming legislation (hopefully UKIP/Tory get elected again ).
No I think it will improve.. you can be funny without being a ignorant ******* you know...
The show works with all three of them together, and it will simply not work without Clarkson.
I also think she's enough of an unknown to be able to build a character that will seem real which you wouldn't get with a chris evans or steve coogan.
I now prefer the programmes where they hunt down and restore classic cars. Much more interesting, much more character, much more passion, much more variety.
For me, Top Gear just became like an episode of FHM some time ago. Pretty dated now.
This won't be the end, I hope.
Maybe some other format might work, but the truth is that car shows, like house shows, have been done to death and there really isn't anything left to do.
I thought it was getting quite boring at times anyway. They really, really dredged the barrel trying to come up with new 'funny' things to do and some of them were so contrived they were more pathetic than funny. On the other hand, sometimes it has been a genuinely brilliant show, I was impressed by the one where they drove to the highest point by road in S. America and then down all the way to the Pacific in Peru, it was really stunning.Maybe some other format might work, but the truth is that car shows, like house shows, have been done to death and there really isn't anything left to do.
It's like Match of the day without Gary Lineker, Countdown without Carol Vordeman, DOND without Noel Edmonds.
Although Richard and James are extremely entertaining, Sunday nights won't be as worthwhile now. Jeremy always had a way of words and knew how to entertain millions, **** it even Will Smith said he admires the man.
Anyone else gonna miss him and feel Topgear won't be the same?
No one can replace him.
