I was away for 10 days or so and naturally wanted to catch up with my fix of Top Gear when I got back but, and this may be sacrilege, I found myself getting bored stiff with all the usual stuff. Take the VW advert for example. The predictability of the characters' input was, well, massively predictable. May was going to be boring and factual, Clarkson was going to be ridiculous and 'out there' and they would never agree. The same basic formula has been applied to the last 3 or 4 series and I've got be honest, its starting to get properly dull. Don't get me wrong, it's still one of my favourite programmes but the race between the letter and the Panamera was one the most pointless and boring exercises I have ever seen on Top Gear that I seriously wonder if its starting to lose it's way. Sad to say, I was more interested in the Porsche than the inane witterings of May and Hammond and couldn't wait for it to be over. I spent more time on ARRSE than I did watching the programme. Do I need to slip on my comfy slippers and sip from my cocoa or does anybody else feel the same?
