400+ years later and these three blokes are still managing to find ways to get in trouble. Sometimes, I think the only reason the BBC keeps them on is because the fans would revolt if they ever considered canceling the series.
Seems the Griffin Mk 2's earned itself a place in the Super Cool Fridge, if not its own category entirely.
The news segment seems a bit abbreviated, but considering how much they had to pack into the episode, that can be forgiven. Too bad they couldn't wedge in a joke about the 405th anniversary edition of the Dacia Sandero.
(Speaking of which, that was an unbelievably cruel joke that Jeremy played on James this week. It was almost like giving somebody a new puppy, and then having some random guy come in and drop-kick it before their very eyes.)
>Clarkson (VO): The Tlaloc, having overheard that a crisis was afoot, responded in the time-honored Aztechmotors tradition: It panicked and broke down immediately.
Sure they didn't just rebadge a Peugeot? If so, Hammond should be thankful it didn't spontaneously combust.
>Subtitle: Honorless dogs! Make way for Captain Slow!
I'll just be a sec, I gotta wipe the tears from my eyes and catch my breath.
>Clarkson (shouting): WE'RE TRAPPED ON TAU CETI AND EARTHGOV WANTS US DEAD!
A veritable poet, he is.
>Clarkson (wincing): Ooh. Yes, I can see that, especially there. Or on New Japan, I dare say. Whenever we take Top Gear Live to New Japan they swarm Richard Hammond like piranha. James and I throw him out of the limousine and make our escape while they're tearing off all his clothes.
Even in the 25th century, Richard Hammond is something of a sex symbol. The others...not so much.
Having Kate and The Stig "communicate" via Wild Signals: Sheer brilliance.
>Hammond (on radio): Which explains how you can fit in the cockpit at all.
The Hamster's just jealous that he'd need a booster seat to reach the controls.
All in all, truly a fantastic episode. I don't know how they're going to top this...perhaps challenging them to turn a Bond Bug into an Asteroid Racer.
