    Banal, painful to watch and just rubbish!

    Their only asset is Tiff Needell.

    It is poor compared to Top Gear...they copy ideas from TG....but do them far worse.
    Very bad.

    It can't be any good, its made by a commercial channel, subsidised by me every time I go and buy any products that just so happen to be advertised on commercial TV as the manufacturers don't advertise out of the goodness of their heart, they pass the cost on to the consumer.
    I demand a 25% reduction in my box of soap powder as I do not, nor ever will, watch that drivel.
    They don't even have a decent magazine to cover the cost of producing the show !
    No, they pass it all onto consumers !!
    I say let all those peeps who subscribe to Sky pay for it.

    Yes - a poor cousin of TG for sure.

    Kind of like what Top Gear used to be 15 years ago....

    at best!!!

    :rolleyes: Juvenile in the extreme. I would think even car bores would baulk at watching!
    A programme for the educationally sub-normal. :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't think of Tiffeny Dell as an asset. More of an ass

    Don't get 5th gear here, but surely it can't be any worse than Vroom-vroom on Sky one? Although by your descriptions of it (very badly aped TG stuff), it sounds similar.

    Actually, if someone were to prepare a list of companies that don't advertise, that don't spend money on telling me about their product, I'd scour that list for things to buy to replace any products that are thus advertised.

    Snap!! I hate the way TV adverts are louder than the TV prog you are watching, just so they can get their subliminal message through to you as you nip into the kitchen / bog.
