Top Gear was on TV tonight. Whilst being better than the past couple of weeks, the cliched analogies from Clarkson are really becoming tired. I’ve heard the “gearbox doesn’t know what it is” line god knows how many times in the past decade. It just isn’t funny anymore.
Also, the production is now so OTT it’s almost impossible to actually see a car for more than tenth of a second. The crazy camera angles, dramatic effects and jarring music make for tiring viewing.
By contrast, and for an example of some excellent car journalism on video, watch this: Chris Harris On Cars
This is a car review. This actually gives information about driving a supercar in the real world. And this is what, given the opportunity, I would like EngageSportMode to be like.
