James May is my favorite. He's quirky, always has something funny to say, is genuinely interested in how the car works and what makes it special or innovative, and is definitely the brunt of most of their jokes. Good dude.

May is great. I thoroughly enjoy his reviews, and his humor is on another level. It's not just stupid, shallow jokes (I'm not saying that I don't enjoy them, which I do) but they're thought through and it's too bad he's being portrayed as boring. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I'm going to watch the shows he's made outside of Top Gear. I hear some of them are really great.

This episode was probably the best this season.

Favorite episode: Three used Italian supercars (bought for £10,000) and driven from Bristol to a strip club in Slough, and none of them completes the trip, each breaking down for a different reason.

Ok, this was awesome. They attempt to build a space shuttle out of a reliant robin.

One of my favorite May moments is when they're testing the Quattroporte, Rapide and Panamera. Clarkson and Hammond are standing frozen, listening to the Maserati's engine (a truly amazing sound IRL) when May interrupts with some bit of trivia and is met with hostile glares. "What?"

Season 17 premiered last night, watching the first episode now. I like it so far, cool race between the skeleton racer and the Mini, and Hammond had a great film as well.

The chick on the skeleton was crazy sexy. Fantastic ep, Hammonds test was awesome.

Yeah chick was smokin. I thought it was a good episode. I hope the future episodes won't be a obviously staged as the episodes were in series 16

Just watched it.

The jaguar and the "new" one where very cool.
Clarkson was on fine form, especially at the end with all the union jack stuff...

Just came to bump the thread, glad to see there were people ahead of me. God, I missed this show.

Omg, the E-Type is a great looking car. I never get enough of looking at it.
