On March 25th, the BBC dropped the contract of host Jeremy Clarkson from the extremely popular Top Gear, a true motoring show, for attacking a producer on set of filming. Now, it seems to be amounting to absolutely, positively nothing.
Co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond have openly said they will not do the show unless Clarkson is there, but it is unclear whether they will return or not. The BBC has said they want to continue to the show, but there is no possible way ratings of 350 million viewers will be able to be revived with new hosts for the show. There is no way that is possible. Those guys were so outlandish and funny that what they did cannot be replicated. There is a possibility that the three could reconvene with Netflix, which really means that they could really do or say what they wanted. To celebrate what once was, I have provided my top two moments from the show.
Definitely the best special of any holiday special they have done. The three hosts traveled across the entire country of Vietnam on motorbikes. They encountered bad weather and broken down motorbikes. They had to turn them into amphibious bikes so they could get them to the final meeting place: a bar in Ha Long Bay, which is in the middle of a body of water.
Sensible Car Tests:
Making fun of a letter from a fan asking them to do sensible car tests of sensible, affordable cars, Jeremy decided to perform tests by putting them through thorough and outlandish tests that look like they could make sense, but don’t. He put a Ford Fiesta and Renault Twingo Sport through the tests, including driving upside down in a tunnel and driving the Ford with the British Marines on a beachhead operation.
