only place i have an issue with cyclists is on the blue ridge parkway... i'm torn about it so much and get so irritated.  i want them to be able to do their thing, enjoy the BRP, etc... but it's such a safety hazard

In Topic: BBC fires Jeremy Clarkson

Top Gear is one of my favorite shows. I love the specials that they do, they are always entertaining. 

 

I agree that some of the things he said were over the line and could be considered offensive, but as was said, they were part of a character he spent years perfecting. I hope that May and Hammond do not try to do Top gear without him. If they want to reinvent Top Gear, it should be with three new hosts, and just redo the whole thing. It would most likely never be able to hold a candle to the original, but it would be better than trying to hang on to a lost cause. 

 

Top Gear on Netflix would be spectacular (although it would have to be under a new name sincethe BBC owns that name).

 

to be fair... they were not the originals.  there was top gear before there was Clarkson, May and Hammond.  but they made top gear what it is

 

to this point, May and Hammond have said "no Clarkson, no us," so hopefully they'll follow him where ever he goes... my only concern is that no matter what they end up doing (can't see them doing anything other than a motoring show) - they won't have the same production value that they had with the BBC.  that's part of what made that show so great as well... they were able to go places, use vehicles and produce dramatic programming that another network may not be able to provide.  that's going to be a big loss
