Top Gear (Australia) is back
« on: May 11, 2009, 01:06:01 AM »
The first episode of series two of Top Gear Australia appears to be starting this week on SBS, Monday at 19:30.  Unfortunately, this is being shown as Top Gear rather than Top Gear Australia so it no longer distunguishes between the two productions (I've reported this to Ice directly). 

Personally, I would like the full "Top Gear Australia" title returned so than my PVR doesn't waste disk space by recording the local rubbish, only recording the original series from the UK.

Thanks

Sorry, but that means there are at least two still to go.  There wasn't a single one of them that endered themselves to our family and the presenters are a critical part of the show.  No, we gave the last series two shows and ended up regretting it, not going to make the same mistake twice.  Unless they have replaced the script writers, the track cameramen, the track itself, the other two hosts and the production team (yes, we had problems with all those aspects of the previous series) we won't be watching.

I'm with mtb on this. The common thing said by people with Top Gear Australia seems to be "give it a go". Why? There is no poiint to it even existing, none at all, and it's taking tens of millions of dollars away from SBS's very limited budget.

To paraphrase "Highlander", when it comes to Top Gear, there can be only one.
