Top Gear - Please Come Back!




"I THINK it’s fair to say that nature made a mistake when it invented the dinosaur. It was too big, too violent and with such small and puny arms it was never going to be able to operate heavy machinery or even enjoy a bit of special “me” time."

“All the dinosaurs died and now, years later, no-one mourns their passing. These big, imposing creatures have no place in a world which has moved on.”

This is what Jeremy Clarkson wrote in his column in The Sun. By now, you've probably already heard about what has been going on with Jeremy Clarkson and a BBC producer. The show was suspended as a result and now, the above post suggests that the show is going to be cancelled for good, which is tragic as far as automotive entertainment goes. Top Gear's official website, though, has not posted about it being cancelled so there is still hope, although it confirmed that this week's episode will also be postponed pending the investigation into the matter. I think the last few seasons weren't as good as before but I still looked forward to every new episode. The worst part is that we are in the middle of a season so there are a few episodes already filmed and produced, ready to be broadcasted and we'll never see them. What a shame.

In an update, Auto Evolution reported that Clarkson was reportedly involved in filming for BBC rival Channel 4, with a new "Full Throttle" show on its way so there's at least an alternative to look forward to. However, the whole gang was very valuable to the character and entertainment value of the show so unless Jezza, the Hamster and Captain Slow are going to appear together again, I highly doubt this upcoming show, Full Throttle, will be as entertaining as Top Gear. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Hopefully, we'll at least get to see the last few episodes of Top Gear.
