Jeremy Clarkson suspended

What do you reckon?
Do they have a show without Clarkson? Do you like him? Hate him?
Personally I want to like topgear but I find it a bit painful to watch these days. It's nice to see the flashy cinematography for a few minutes, I'll leave it at that.

The reality is that they don't have a show without Clarkson. Hammond and the other guy don't have the charisma to carry the show, and they rely on JC's assshole character for most of the comedy. They will likely reinstate him, given the money it makes, or cancel the show. Either way, I doubt the sensibilities of the producer will be of greater importance to them than the BBC's profit margins, and that will be that.
JC has made a bucket of cash from Top Gear, so he most certainly won't give a sliver of a f**k whatever happens.

In any case, people still watch it, and the day Clarkson leaves the set for good is the day Top Gear stops filming.
Love him or hate him, Jeremy Clarkson IS Top Gear.

Ah High Octane starring... Ketzal 'Gay Boy' Sterling haha. Enjoy giving those a watch too
No Top Gear without Clarkson tho. His questionable comments are good for a laugh if nothing else

That said, I do enjoy watching it. Shit can be hilarious. Wanted to go to the festival that is coming up, but don't think I can make it

When they built cars in earlier season the episode was packed of them messing around building the cars, which made you feel abit more interested in the build.
Also i never watch the "Star in a reasonably priced car" i even fast forwarded the recent ep with daniel ricardo.. its boring.. Yeah sure some of these people can drive really really fast or they are funny, but still no interest at all in it.
It would be sad to see the show go, as in the end the more Automotive presence the world has especially with guys who mess around the more down to earth the car scene is, and the more dumb people who dont know cars still know 'Top Gear'

most people see him as obnoxious and self serving and the show as 'dumb lads playing with expensive toys' - the latter point being next level given that they dont even own or maintain the cars they drive, its just a review loaner.
Enthusiasts are trying to collectively shake that idea of gearheads and shows like Top Gear dont help, in my opinion.

IMHO there are and have been many other great shows springing up out of youtube (Drive, The Smoking Tyre, Motortrend etc) making it pretty big (Drive got picked up by NBCSN i believe) that hold more appeal.

I recently got into a series called Fast N' Loud. Its about a business called Gas Monkeys in America who try to buy/sell cars for a profit. Sometimes modifying/restoring if there is a profit to me made. It has some humour in it, and just has a genuine fun feel to the series.

Roadkill on youtube is awesome for that making shit from shit and thrashing it kind of thing.
Then Chris Harris, Drive and the odd Jay Leno's garage and I've got my automotive entertainment covered.

The most recent DVD 'Detonate' got pirated heaps so didn't make the profit...

Ahh ok, I thought they might have been dealing something and got caught haha.

Nothing satisfies me more than to see all the hipsters and soccer mums have a bitch about something Clarkson said, only for him to be let off with a slap on the wrist.
The social media tizzy that would result from Clarkson returning to Top Gear once again would be the main reason I want to see him come back.
I am so sick of these self righteous social justice warriors (who have never watched the show to begin with) constantly trying to bludgeon media companies to bend in favor of their naive, beige, playschool, 'participation award' world view. People with the gall to give those pansies the finger are a rare gift to the world.

just because hes talent doesnt mean he should be treated any better than anyone else.
maybe the show will reinvent itself into something better. the current formula of old mates doing dumb things was getting pretty tired.
Posted 26 March 2015 - 07:56 PM
They should just sh*t can the the whole show now and start fresh. new name,new crew, new direction. The worst thing they could do is try recreate top gear , ever seen top gear Australia that show was woeful.
