    Re: Jermey Clarkson Powered Up

    I know the mods frown on posting links to videos sometimes, so I'll just say it's up, segmented, but in it's entirety on streetfire.net. Watching it now.

    Line of the show so far:

    "Ferrari was founded by a man called Enzo. Lamborghini by a man called Ferruccio. Pagani, a man called Horacio. The problem with the McLaren is that it's from a man called Ron." 

    [No offense intended, Ron].

    Re: Jermey Clarkson Powered Up

    I have to say that it's not as good as the previous 2 dvds.

    There's no need to bring back the GTR for the 3rd year in a row. Also, The Aventador should've been tested instead of the useless LE Gallardo.

    Not worth it if you ask me, you might as well as turn off the sound and just look at the images Smiley Things are exagerated and artificially staged just to make certain false conclusions appear true and make some things more sensational than they really are, a healthy dose of patriotic bias, an infomertial plug of a model, and with a couple of old-geezer non-sportcars cars to the mix. Voilá. Maybe if I were 14 years old...

    C'Mon - he's funny and he test's car we all admire - nothing wrong with it. If you want serious readings read EVO....

    Seriously - who does it better ? Tiff & Vicky ? There are a couple of shows in German TV such as GRIP etc - but non comes close to TG....

    The problem is, he is not that funny in this one, its not as much like a TopGear show, in this one he tries to be a tad more interesting and factual, so it gets really annoying when you see everything manipulated for show like a yellow press news story, mixed in wth a lot of useless info.

    When he wants to show one car being very fast at speed he compares it one with a similar powered one but with the top down hence the drag of a grayhound bus slowing it down, or in a dragrace he chooses against a manual without using launch control on it, he has got a track and a racing driver but he hides all the lap times because that will screw up his staged conclusions, then there is his rancid anti-911 bias, he had the GT2RS there, the fastest car of the bunch and it was the only car he did not even dedicate 2 minutes reviewing time, he just used called it a VW and used it as a prop for his agenda. Instead he wasted part of the show reviewing a modded E-tape and an Interceptor and looking like a Sunday-driver on a mountain road. Instead of funny like some pieces of TopGear, it just insulted your intelligence.Liike I said, I don't think you will like this one and may not be what you are expecting.

    Clarkson might be at a stage in his life when he's looking for his holy grail car. 

    I don't think true performance matters much to him anymore as much as HIS driving feel and exclusivity.  

    Does this sound all too familiar? indecision

    Tiff and Jason are 100 times more reliable; they actually know how to drive for starters! Then they are factual, whereas Jeremy is just making things up! Tiff clocked the revised 458 faster than the MP4 round their test track (as have many magazines), yet Clarkson keeps telling how faster the Macca is. Not to mention that the bloody idiot doesn't seem to understand that the 458 CAN, I repeat, CAN display both the sat-nav and the speedo at the same time! Smiley Then he keeps on mumbling about art and how important it is for his friends to admire the car he drives and all sort of silly snobbery that has nothing to do with actually driving a car! He is a clown, that's what he is, and TG is the circus!

    What are the comparative audience ratings for the 2 TV shows?

    Re: Jermey Clarkson Powered Up

    I just watched it - very entertaining, like always with Clarkson. But - not a must have IMO.

    I guess that TG is vastly more popular, as it owes to be, given that it's on the Beeb and having the budget and reach it has. Then again you know what they say... trillions of flies eat sh*t every day... do they really know best? Smiley
