Default Top Gear - S14 EP6 - 27th December, 2009 - Discussion

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are dropped deep in the Bolivian rainforest armed only with three 4x4s which they bought from the local small ads for a maximum of 3500 pounds each. They attempt to drive from the heart of Bolivia to the coast of Chile, encountering drug lords and the debilitating effects of high altitude. But before that, they've got to escape from the deep centre of the rain forest in what is without doubt the toughest challenge Top Gear has ever faced.
7:45pm start time, looks like a good one

Yeah, it was quite a bit boring.....not much action. Worst of all, the only car I like is the land cruiser.

I enjoyed the episode, as it shows what really happens in the real world when one tries to tackle something out of one's natural element. We are used to watching Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche and Pagani tested by the Stig and all the celebrities coming in and doing their little power laps. This episode shows what actually really happens when man and machine try to match mother nature, mother nature will win more often than not. I do not think that many people on this forum would even attempt to do what the trio accomplished or tried to accomplish, instead of calling the show boring and slow, it was trying to teach all of us a lesson that was missed by most. Don't get me wrong, I still love all the supercars and great challenges that they have, but this was their most adventuresome challenge yet, along with the Vietnam challenge.
