a bunch of adult men acting like little kids turns my stomach. More worrying is my DH watches the pile of crap.

I don't know about unreasonable, but you're the only person I've ever seen say they don't like it!
I love it and I don't even drive, let alone own a car. It's weird.


moljam · 05/01/2008 21:31

i love it!!!im not into cars except classics and thats only as they look pretty but i love top gear!

Our best hour of the week is watching TG.

I love Jeremy Clarkson, his books, and column in the Sunday Telegraph, he says what he wants, without feeling constrained. And TG is funny and entertaining. (and I'm a non-driver, with no interest in cars whatsover).


bossybritches · 05/01/2008 21:32

Shaniece- my DH & I watch it with our DD's & love it-it taps in to our sarcastic SOH.

But YANBU it's a Marmite thing -love it or hate it!

Let your DH watch it, tut to yourself & go & do something more edifying!


wannaBe · 05/01/2008 21:33

can't stand it. neither can my dh. agree re grown men acting like spoilt children, promoting cars that go way over the legal speed limit.


Bouncingturtle · 05/01/2008 21:33

YANBU - personally I love it, as does my DH, but that doesn't mean it will appeal to everyone.


LynetteScavo · 05/01/2008 21:33

DH & DS1 love it. DS1 is 9, adn rolls around the floor laughing at it.

Or maybe he's just laughing at their hair.


Biglips · 05/01/2008 21:33

Shaniece - what a bore!

i love the programme as it gets me in stitches


Shaniece · 05/01/2008 21:33

I can't stand it. Adult men acting like little schoolboys and getting really excited about it . I get the impression they get more turned on by cars than they would sex .

I do like it a lot but it is getting a bit formulasic in that it seems a bit scripted and they do pretty much the same things every week...but I love Star in a Reasonably Priced Car


ByTheSea · 05/01/2008 21:34

DH and I have no interest, but DS who's 10 loves it. YANBU!


MaryAnnSingleton · 05/01/2008 21:35

doh, - formulaic ? you know what I mean...


fairydust · 05/01/2008 21:35

beansprout · 05/01/2008 21:35

YANBU. Can't bear the thought of it and JC is just an utter twunt that the world would be better off without.

Jeremy Clarkson is an arrogant, sexist pig too! Yuk!

stripeymama · 05/01/2008 21:36

I hate it too.

So funny to see licence payers money go on promoting wankerish fast driving and wanton environmental destruction.


Shaniece · 05/01/2008 21:37

strimeymama - and chauvanistic pigs .

roisin · 05/01/2008 21:37

I really enjoy this programme - also a non-driver with no interest whatsoever in cars.


Twiggypiggy · 05/01/2008 21:38

We all love it too


Snaf · 05/01/2008 21:38

I find it very, very funny. Sometimes. I think 'it turns my stomach' is just a weeny bit OTT. It's only a silly bit of TV.

It makes my father weep with laughter, and the poor sod needs all the jollies he can get, believe me. So no bad thing, imo.

(Don't we have a love TG/hate TG almost every week now?)


PillockOfTheCommunity · 05/01/2008 21:38

I love it


fishie · 05/01/2008 21:41

how funny so many people like it, am surprised. i really really hate it.. clarkson = dangerous idiot. james may = middling journalist earning more than he is worth as a stooge. hammond = fool.


chiefcookandbottlewasher · 05/01/2008 21:43

I love it but I think you've got to take it with a pinch of salt. Top Gear has got me extra kudos with DH, however - it's amazing how impressive a well-timed 'bags of grunt' slipped into the conversation can be to a group of slighty drunk car obsessives!!


Shaniece · 05/01/2008 21:43

clarkson = arrogant pig (didn't he have an affair?) may = long haired boring git hammond = idiot to put his wife and kids through what happened to him.
