Anyone watched the latest and last episode the GT season 2?

Bloody hilarious. Like a proper old challenge on Top Gear.

Certainly watch it when you get the time though, haven't laughed like that at a GT/TG episode for a long while!

It'll get watched over the weekend for sure. If not tonight, at some point thereafter.

This whole second season has been great, though. So many moments that felt like the Top Gear of old. They're definitely heading in the right direction and it's encouraging for season 3 and hopefully beyond.

Yeah season two has been a great improvement. I hope they bin off the celebrity face off bit in season 3 though, still the only bit I skip.

This episode (11?) is the best so far in my opinion. Easily up to the standard of some of their smaller TG challenges.

Even then, that bit isn't too bad. Apart from the gimmicks, it's really no different than when they'd have two stars in a reasonably priced car on back in season 10 or 11 of Top Gear (or whenever it was). This could again be due to contractual issues, and perhaps next season we'll see a return to a standard lap times table, perhaps with guest racing drivers coaching the stars each week.

Especially the one with Paris Hilton. God that woman has the personality of a plank of wood (apologies to any plank of wood fans)

My wife said to me when I skipped her section: "I'd have thought you'd have watched it just for the eye candy!"

Does she think my standards are that low?!
