    Fifth Gear - excellent 1st episode

    Fifth Gear returned for another series. The first episode (30 mins) included a drive in the new Ferrari 458 Italia, a duel between a Boxster S and a new hot hatchback from Renault and also a segment on the new McLaren MP4-12C sports car.

    After some disappointing programmes in the past, this was fantastic - a massive improvement Smiley

    I have it ready to watch as soon as I have a moment and this is great to hear, I was wondering if Fifth Gear would get back on track!

    Easy, the link you have there is for UK audience only, any idea where else it can be watched?

    edit: Got it

    thanks for the youtube, that show was enjoyable indeed.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Fifth Gear - excellent 1st episode

    Just watched it, definitely Fifth Gear is back. Hope they continue the rest of the season in this trend, though this was the season opener. Top Gear is fun to watch for entertainment value as a comedy show themed on sportcars with more emphasis on the presenter's acting roles ala three stooges that the actual cars themselves, but there also needs to be a program to provide more informative and objective content for the sportcar enthusiasts, and that was Fifth Gear, its just that the last seasons took a turn for lame cars, uninteresting car related stories and uncharismatic non-petrolhead hosts for some reason. But this show was promising, it looks like they found they way again. Only advice is that they should focus entirely on interesting upper segment cars and stay away from cars like the Smart, i-whaterver and mini segment they had.

    5th Gear is MUCH BETTER than Top Gear... and Plato and Needel are ace drivers!

     Couldn't have said it any better myself Smiley


    Re: Fifth Gear - excellent 1st episode

    Wow. Show's completely different. Much faster - the paced feels almost rushed with all the quick cuts and the way the segments just jam into the next one.

    Can definitely see the production value is lower and they're on a tighter budget.

    ...the only thing stopping you in all likelihood, is you!
