Looking forward to the start of the new series last night ... and how rubbish is it now

Plato's gone, new unknown "cheapo" presenter in, no studio (no doubt a budget cut) poor features and no real car reviews as such or shoot outs.

It was still not as bad as Sky 1's Vroom Vroom, but it was under par to its format as it was.

Considering Top Gear spends half its time now building car boats and the like, Fifth Gear had established itself as my fave car programme on TV, but after last night's performance, it has sunk to an all time low.

oh dear Channel 5 what have you done
Didn't see it last night, but it sounds dreadful. Plato was annoying, but at least he knew what he was talking about.

I agree on vroom vroom though - I love cars - but even I think it's garbage.

Am I really bothered whether a chauffer in a 350z can beat an F1 driver in a vintage rolls royce. (he can BTW) ?
