    Yeah I watched the heroes after it.. Not bad but I can't really see what all the fuss is about.. This maybe because I'm such a huge LOST and Prison Break addict that my brain doesn't consider any other show.. Meh maybe it's just boring.. Also forgot to add does anyone know the song they were playing thoughout the whole show? I'm 99% sure it's in a film or two aswell just can't put my finger on which one!!

    if it's the classical one it was, the much overused main title theme to Requiem For A Dream called 'Summer Overture'.

    Best TV in ages ... well since the US special or they made the Reliant Space Shuttle!

    Anyone know where to email the BBC to say thanks for great TV to try and offset all those treehuggers who'll complain about ruining the wilderness and drink driving!

    Oh and there's a whole load about it on both www.topgear.com and www.toyota.co.uk

    Yep, I agree with what everyone says, it was a great episode, very funny. My favourite since the American one.

    Watched Heroes after too and I guess you have to watch a few to get into it?

    I finally got around to watching it tonight, had to go out last night so I sky+ it. My conclusion it was amazing. Ihope they do a special DVD and extend it as we only got to see an hours worth of it and it took them 3/4days and all the training before hand and also give a better more technical insight to the Toyota aswell.

    This was probably why Clarkson said a few months back he might quit Top Gear and why he said there might not be another series as they could have died doing this one program, I would dread the amount of risk assesments and H & S forms that had to be filled in to do this episode.

    Did anyone notice that in the credits everyone was Sir Ranulph after Sir Ranulph Fiennes includeing the crew instead of there christian names??​
