You referring to Hammond's

Renault pickup truck and ISIS
comment?

Seemed tame to me.

Can't believe they destroyed a Subie though.

Yeah, that was actually a pretty good joke. Toyota gets so much shit for their trucks winding up in ISIS's hands.

These guys aren't getting shut down by Amazon.

Thought it was a great episode. The ISIS comment was nothing, IMO. Now, killing sheep...

Yeah I couldn't stop laughing at this.

11/10 would watch again this season. I hope they keep it up.

I still wish they would let Abbie Eaton speak more than, "Right, lets do this". I think they could have her do the lap, then have her sit with them and discuss the car's handling / characteristics, but Jeremy would just be an.

^ I think they are trying to build her into some kind of character. Similar to Sting who never spoke. That is just my guess.

A segment with her critiquing the cars would be cool but I dont think they have the time slot for it

Finally all caught up. Loved the WRC segment, wish they'd do more like that.
The sheep bit had me laughing, too.

And who doesn't love a good [Clarkson]Jaaaag[/Clarkson] segment?

I think that is the intend. If you saw the 1st ep, he introduced the segment as Celebrity F........ace off.

I just wish they could get bigger names in that Celebrity faceoff segment. It does not feel "too funny" since i dont know most of them

Actually, I kind of like it. Most people we have never heard of and that's OK. You get to know different "famous" people than you are used to. It sure as hell beats a celebrity getting "blown up".

Nick Mason is a fairly big name. Another solid episode. It's basically classic Top Gear now.

8 episodes have aired so far @ 2 guests per episode, so 16 guests total. I know/recognized 9 of the guests. That's more than half.

episode 1
- David Hasselhoff : needs no explanation of who he is unless you've never seen Knight Rider or Bay Watch
- Ricky Wilson : lead singer for Kaiser Chiefs

episode 5
- Bill Bailey : don't know much about him but recognized his face and know he's a comedian
- Dominic Cooper : played Howard Stark in 1st Captain America movie and Agent Carter tv show; plays Jesse Custer on Preacher tv show.... have you not seen / watched these?

episode 6
- Luke Evans : have you not seen The Hobbit movies or the live action The Beauty and the Beast movie?
- Kiefer Sutherlan : needs no explanation of who he is

episode 7
- Goldberg : WWF/WWE wrestler

episode 8
- Stewart Copeland : needs no explanation of who he is unless you don't listen to/ have never heard of the band The Police
- Nick Mason : needs no explanation of who he is unless you don't listen to/have never heard of the band Pink Floyd

That last episode... Man, driving a manual with no syncros? And the clutch hooked to the power steering pump in the XJ? You got one or the other with assist and not both. Damn.

Obviously i know who Hasselhoff is... I actually thought about adding the light strip when i got my first car. and of course Jack bauer.

But I was expecting being a new season and a new segment, they would try to bring Tom Cruise and Cameron Dias.

No idea who the others are

Pfft. She still seemed a bit air-headed to me. She does get points for being a bit of a car girl though.

Her outfit begged "my eyes are up here", but she didn't seem too much of a space cadet. Now, her Bentley? Yeah, too much.
