2802. Another solid episode.
In particular the McLaren Speedtail review was done well. The review & the small challenge that followed. What a machine.

The Cheap Off-Roader challenge was a decent enough watch, it tended to drag a bit but not bad as the earlier ones.

The Pontiac drag race scene in tonight's episode is one of the funniest things that's been on TG for a loooong time.

2803. Entertaining episode. The American Cars in Peru challenge was pretty well done with lots of laughs.

The Taycan review by Chris was a great watch as well. Seems like it really moved the EV game on, mostly due to it's 800V architecture.

I almost wet myself when Paddy pulled away as he warmed up before the drag race :ROFL:

2804. Bit of a mixed bag with some good moments.

The Racing the Baja 1000 segment had potential but due some factors out of their control it was a bit of a letdown.

The Star section was rubbish (as usual).

The Mégane RS Trophy R insert was really good and the ensuing drag race & shootout.

5/10 from me, just a bit boring.

2805. So so episode.

The Best Exotic European Sports Car challenge was decidedly average, nothing particularly memorable. More long winded than anything else.

The VW I.D. R insert was really interesting if a little short.

2806. Good all-round season closer.

Paddy's M8 review was pretty enjoyable, some valid points raised.

The Colin McRae tribute was quality & highly informative. Chris was clearly moved. What a driver!

The Fastest Emergency service challenge was an enjoyable watch as well. Especially lovely seeing the Suzuki Liana after many years & the Chris Evans references was definitely worth a few laughs.

All in all S28 was a success in my book. I feel the show has finally got the formula & chemistry nailed down.

/waits for S29.

Do people still watch Top Gear. I gave up after watching the first episode of the latest season.
