    New Fifth Gear Season

     I saw the season premiere of this season's Fifth Gear and it was very promising, their editorial line seems the best I remember in years, and they could be on the right track for a show for the sportcar oriented drivers and interesting info and reviews.

    They featured a GT-R on Abu Dhabi's track comparing track time with electronics on vs off. Plato and Needell make a great couple and know what they are doing as drivers.

    Vicky tested the new overkill hatchback from Audi in Monaco.

    And the new Team Test is a great idea, with all the presenters brainstorming together their different points of view. Plato catching air with the new X3 with everybody inside was priceless.

     

    Next episode looks even better since they will be going to  Lapland and Tiff will race World Touring Champion with a 997GT3RS on a recreation of Hockenheim on ice. And they will test the new Aston V12 in Spain. 

     

    Definately worthwhile to watch Smiley

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Tiff is one of the few people on TV car programs who actually knows how to drive.


    Re: New Fifth Gear Season

     The only problem I've always had with fifth gear is that they make good reviews but they try to force the "entertainment" into the show. Thats why I like Top Gear better, sure the reviews and opinions are not that good but its funny, which is better. If I want to hear good hard facts and comprehensive reviews I know I won't get it anywhere on tv, and for that reason and on this case I'll take the funny show over the smart show. 


    Re: New Fifth Gear Season

    I see what you mean but in my case when it comes to sportcars, I'd choose the one with more objective-information content than the one with comical-scrippted content, after all if I want a comedy I watch a sit-com, but IMO its not about choosing one over the other, they are so different that you can watch and enjoy both without it being redundant

     You know what, you're right. It's not that I don't enjoy FG I just enjoy TG more.  Smiley


    Re: New Fifth Gear Season

    I met Tiff a couple weeks ago in Johannesburg, cool dude.


    Re: New Fifth Gear Season

    The first couple of shows have been good IMO

    My only complaint is that the programme should be longer - say 40 or 60 mins  That would allow them to cover things in greater depth

    I have the exact feeling to, sometimes it seems that they have to rush things a bit  and fly though the tests in order to fit the sections in its allocated time.
