Was looking up info about series seventeen of Top Gear.  Saw some cool news.  Rowan Atkinson is going to the guest in the “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” in episode four.  This is pretty cool.  Have all ways wonder if he would ever be on this show sine he is a big gear head.   He all so has a new movie coming out Johnny English Reborn.  Watched the trailer is does look pretty funny.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2011 by getbent57

Back when Top Gear series 16 ended they said they would be back in June with series 17.  Have been looking every other day to find out what day in June.  Well last night found out it will start June 26, 2011.  You can heard their post about it > here.  Then looked up Top Gear on Wikipedia.  They say there will be six episodes.  Which is on par with past series.  But I hope there will be more or many be a cool special.  Looking forward to my favourite show being back on the air.

Top Gear Series Sixteen Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2011 by getbent57

Series sixteen of Top Gear ended last night (Feb 27, 2011).  As all ways this series was awesome.  These guys keep out doing themselves.  Every episode put a smile on my face and laughed out loud more then once each show.  Have to say the music was really good this series.  They used some great stuff then they filmed the car tests.  Wish they would list the names of the songs they used.  There is only one thing I was disappointed with.  If you seen series promo, you seen Richard driving this big red tank like thing though a bunch of stuff.  They never aired it.  Many be in series seventeen.  Don’t have long to wait for that since that will start in June 2011.

If you have read my blog before taking about Top Gear you know what score I will give it.   Best show on TV.

Top Gear Middle East Special

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2010 by getbent57

Just finished watching then newest Top Gear Special. It was called the Middle East special.  Some are now calling it The Three Wise Men Christmas Special.  Either way it was awesome.  They pulled off an other great road trip episode.  Don’t want to give any thing way. Just a heads up you will have some good laughs.  There is one real scary moment.  That is all I will say.

So happy this show is back for a sixth series.  Have a new episodes to look forward in January, well near the end of January.

Top Gear Is Back

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2010 by getbent57

A new episode of Top Gear aired last night (Dec 21, 2010).  It was another American road tip special but they had some new in the studio stuff as well.  It was awesome as ever.  Even with out the Stig.   They did some what talk about the whole thing with him leaving and writing a book.  It was funny how they laid into the situation.  They all so show clips from the up coming shows.  Have to say this series looks pretty sweet.  Can’t wait for more.   Boxing day they have another special taking placing in the middle east.

A week or more I posted that Top Gear series sixteen is going to have two episodes in December, one on the 21 and the other on the 26.  There is some new info about these two specials and a trailer to go along with.

“ 21 Dec 2010: The world’s most popular car show returns as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May compare the Mercedes SLS, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Ferrari 458 Italia in an epic road trip up America’s east coast. Along the way they undertake a series of challenges culminating in a fight to find the fastest way into New York, all in the name of crowning the world’s greatest sports car. Plus, a round up of car-related Christmas tat and Danny Boyle takes to the track as the star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

26th Dec 2010 : Top Gear pays tribute to the festive season in their own inimitable style. In their most spectacular journey ever, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May create their own 21st century nativity play as they follow the journey of the three wise men across the Middle East.”
