Honestly, I haven't watched it in a long time. I wish I had the time to. It's probably better than it was for a while now.

It actually is. The budget is obviously alot smaller than TG but it's much more of a car show and not just entertainment for the masses.

I have all of them. Just let me know, I'll have to rework my seeding torrents (<100 limit), but not a problem.
