    Couldn't see another thread about this so I thought it was worth mentioning as I only spotted it by chance...

    Tonight, 7.30pm on Five

    Great, I thought they had axed this show?

    Whilst I like Top Gear, it's way to over the top now, Fifth Gear actually do useful tests :)

    Love/hate. :(

    I want to see & hear cars racing across my forty but I don't want to have to put up with the crap presenters.
    Plato is fine by me though obviously.

    It's car related, and it's on TV. Therefore it is set to record. :)

    Jason Plato is driving the Ferrari 458 tonight, so for that alone it should be worthwhile.

    For the love of God, keep Plato and axe the rest. The other presenters make me so ill watching tv - almost as much as Louis Walsh does

    That's like being asked to choose between a night out with a whale of a woman, or a night out with a larger and more odourful whale of a woman.

    I'll choose to avoid both.

    Marmite show tbh but I like it. I'll hopefully watch. Got to be better than Gok's Fashion Fix or whatever toss is normally on :)

    Ive come to really like fifth gear as they do some good tests and usefull topics.

    While i like topgear i no longer see it as a review/info show more a comedy/sunday night tv.

    I shall be watching.

    It probably wouldnt be a bad show, except that it's one of those prgrammes where the presenters seem to think they are broadcasting to an audience of children, with stupid jokes and unfunny comments. Once you get past the irritating/cringing attempts at humour, some of the show is actually quite informative and itneresting.
