Anyone watches Top Gear?

Out of curiousity. How many of you guys watched Top Gear?

I love the show for all it's challenges and car tests despite the frequent criticism they recieved throughout the years. I watch the show online most of the time but I also watched it on the TV. It aired in my region under BBC Knowledge. They are showing Series 10, Series 7 and Series 4 currently each week. I know my area lags 2 years behind the current Top Gear Season 14 which is still airing and Episode 4 is airing this Sunday but at least the experience of watching Top Gear on the telly is more distinct than watching it from an old laptop computer with a broken pair of speakers. (Although I had to endure the censorship for some scenes in the episodes they air in Singapore as the themes are either inappropriate or irrelevant for e.g: The News segment)

So, how do you guys think of the show? Do you like the presenters?

Have your say.

I agree number1. In fact I read an article in the London Evening Standard a few weeks ago saying that the producers of the show expressed fears that 'they were in danger of disappearing up their own backsides' and that they had been receiving emails from fan club members saying just that.

It's gone from being a spontaneous, off the cuff, three idiots messing about type of show to a highly scripted corporate production which - in my opinion - is to its detriment.
