Top Gear tonight [Feb. 4th, 2008|05:22 pm]
[mood |bouncybouncy]

Just a reminder that at 7:30 tonight is Top Gear. I've watched them turn cars and vans into amphibious vehicles, seen a game of soccer using stunt drivers in small cars knocking around a giant ball, and seen them as roadies for The Who.

Tonight they attempt to turn the three-wheel Reliant Robin into a reusable shuttle by strapping it onto a rocket and sending it into space. It's also got Simon Pegg from Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz as their star in a reasonably-priced car.

Drat. Forgot. Will most likely miss it as going out to celebrate father's birthday.

We will tape. Or rather put it on some sort of digital media. Will bring to Eurogames, if you're coming this week.

Bugger, our recording failed due to reasons unknown. Seeking other sources...

Cars as an obssession is interesting... but I'm always up for Simon Pegg. :-)

Well, never watched Top Gear, Rob 'n' me, but as you seem so keen, we'll watch it tonight. Thanks!

Okay, I watched it!

I've seen a couple of segments of it before, so knew it was a good show in general. If they took all the car stuff out of it, I'd probably watch it regularly :) So I can see why car nuts would love it.

As it is, I'd just watch it if they had any guests on it I wanted to see, or segments like tonight's rocket one.

If I'd realised I would have pointed people towards their episode in America the other week. There are some really scary moments in that one when they're chased by rednecks.

I watched one tonight on BBC where they each had to buy a car for $1000 (in America) and go through a series of tests. One test was the only thing they could eat...
was whatever roadkill they find alongside the road.
