    I have DVDs and old downloads as well
    The Africa special is my fave too! I loved all the specials but my least fave of them if I had to choose would be the middle east one or the polar one.

    Lol GearKnobs would have been brilliant! :laugh: I'm kinda let down on the new title but as long as the show is good then that is all that matters I won't be watching the new TG.

    Looking forward to your update
    Ah fair enough then.
    Ive got all the specials and all the challenges dvds and a couple of others.
    The specials are awesome!!!
    I like the Middle East one. Burma was probably my least fav along with the polar one.

    It wouldve indeed!! But were stuck with the new name. Thats true, i have a feeling its gonna be a good!
    Nooo the new one looks quite good! Im excited for it!

    Ill tag you in it!!

    I'd say the Cornwall Campervan Challenge, where Richard's motorhome fell apart. So funny (especially at 4:48)!

    I felt so bad for Hammond in the polar special. I can't imagine skiing for as long as he did and you could see the toll it was taking on him. I would have cracked a lot sooner than he did

    Gotta love when Jeremy and James had a gin and tonic while driving in the polar special because technically it wasn't illegal since they were in international waters :laugh:

    Not entirely sure what i thought of it.

    Matt LeBlanc seems like he could work well but the constant shouting and over-enthusiasm from Chris Evans was slightly grinding.

    The new rally cross track was okay i thought, but again, Chris Evans seemed to ruin that segment for me.

    Very mixed feelings so far.
