Top Gear UK
If you are interested in cars, this is a great TV show for you. But, if you want to watch review on some car in this show and buy it after (because you will know good and bad sides of that car), don’t! As a TV show, where cars and comedy are mixed, it is a great show, but as a car review TV show, it is bad. The Top Gear is presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. And their secret test driver The Stig. Interesting facts is that there is no any kind of information about this man. Nobody knows who he is. There were some speculations that the Stig is Michael Schumacher, but this wasn’t true. There are 22 seasons and 11 specials. They are testing cars but not on ordinary way. If some of them likes that car, then it is good, but if he don’t, it is a bad car.
Besides testing cars they have ‘’A star in a reasonably priced car’’. This is part of the show when a celebrity is coming to the studio and drive an average car (at the moment they are using Kia Cee’d), on a track, and try to make the best time. They also ‘’do the news’’, part of the show when they are presenting new cars and gadgets related to cars. Top Gear is a very popular TV show, with an average viewers of 350 million in more than 170 countries. The funny thing is that they are making funny, almost everything, especially people with caravans and some car clubs. So, they have a lot of complaints every week, but it seems that is irrelevant.
