Have been watching this,  we have had some truly great ideas and game changing designs (Triumph Dolomite Sprint - first mass production engine with 4 valve head - more power than a BMW of the time but fitted into an old body) (hydrolastic suspension gave car great handling but badly put together so system rusted away and leaked) but they have been badly executed due to bean counters penny pinching.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Carnage on Sky. Itís like Robot Wars crossed with Mad Max, hosted by Freddie Flintoff and two people Iíve never heard of.

I recorded Top Gear on Sunday night. It is a while since I watched it last and the trailer looked interesting. I watched it last night. That is an hour of my life I will never get back. It was crap. Didn't even bother with Extra Gear. Deleted that and the rest of the series from my recorder. Only smattering of humour was Matt LeBlanc. When he leaves it will be dismal. Now I remember why it was so long since I watched it!

It's like panning for gold. Every now and then they have a good piece but mostly it is rubbish that I don't have the time for. A very poor recreation of the Clarkson/May/Hammond original.

Having said that, I haven't engaged with their 'Grand Tour' Amazon show either. Watched a few from the first season, but I think their particular style is now looking very dated and out of touch.
