    Default Fifth Gear

    Fifth Gear is back on tonight. I didn't watch it much last series because it was so cr@p, but apparently they've got rid of that annoying (and useless) Tim Lovejoy bloke. I'll give it a chance and see if it's improved any.

    I came I saw and I wasn't impressed one bit, Plato being a knob on the autobahn, when it was built fast cars did 140mph, if too many ppl start trying for 200mph + on it, there will be accidents due to closure speed and a speed limit will come in to force ruining it for everybody, that should have been done on a track.

    VBH, trying to make a mini car look faster than a Ferarri, lets test it where you have to corner every 10 seconds, doh!

    Mr Ford, well what can you say, lets stalk madonna and she wont know were there and we can get her picture, all the while some geezer has a full size video camera on his shoulder capturing it, not set up on little bit.

    Needles, well it was nice to see the Audi, quite fancy one of those myself next week after I've been in to the lottery centre for my cheque, but you know what your gonna get from Tiff, powerslide perfection and his anoraky grin.

    BRING BACK KERSHAW!!!!

    They like to do that, like when they pitted a vxr against a 888 in a midrange race .... they don`t beleive in everyday driving, if vbh wasn`t on it no one would watch ....

    I think someone above sum'd it up, they try to outdo TG and fail.

    Now if it was my show and I worked for C5 this would be my presenters.

    VBH - Her cheeky nature has appeal

    Tiff - Because I like Tiff's ability behind the wheel

    Eddie Irvine - Cos he's Eddie

    Steve Berry - Cos he knows his bikes and has a boyishness about him

    Quentin Wilson - Every car show needs it's own upper class spiv.

    The show lacks a guest spot as well, I know it would be ripping off TG, but I think it's a welcome break half way through a show.

    Testing real time figures, like lets go get a Focus and see what it returns driving round London all day, and then take it to say Brighton for the same test and compare the difference.

    Rag yer motor on TV, a member of the public, brings their car on and does a Pod run against a respected pro driver, and then again on the track to see how far apart an enthusiastic member of the public can do against someone who races/raced for a living.

    Car auction reports, report on how much cars sell for at auction each week and compare with dealer prices, I'm sure BCA wouldn't mind and would sponsor it.

    Interview top ppl from the manufacturer's, ask about future models and how a car firm operates.

    Cover the car shows, like PVS etc, get on the ground with ppl who really love cars.

    I have some more but 80ll0ck5 to em, they ain't paying me are they.

    It,s OK. I quite like the 'real world' crash tests they do. But as has been said, it just needs spicing up...a bit more humour wouldn't go amiss either!

    I thought it was quite good. The Kia/Madonna feature was pants, but the rest was worth watching.
