Admit it! 5th Gear is Now Better Than Top Gear
 
Am I the only one who thinks this way? I miss the old days when Top Gear would actually take cars on normal roads and do proper car reviews. Maybe they should do a separate show about their adventures and a regular Top Gear for cars. The last couple of episodes of 5th Gear were, in my view, better than the latest episodes of Top Gear.

I like that 5th Gear is always up-to-date with its car tests. They've already done tests on the M3 E92 and the 430 Scuderia. In Top Gear, 'Ferrari's latest' is still the 599 (this test is waaaay overdue). There are also no crazy tests that have absolutely nothing to do with cars... And yet I voted for Top Gear. Maybe it's bias, but I just find it more enjoyable and interesting. My decision is almost as illogical as JC choosing the AM Vanquish over the F575 M :P

5th Gear is not quite there yet IMO, but the last series was a huge step forwards, starting with dumping fag man.

From a serious car testing point of view 5th gear rocks.
Top gear is just comedy show that is car related.

LMAO

I 100% missed all of the previous season... TG had briefly gotten a LOT better, then went to ghey that I stopped watching (and a lack of time) Its funny that I missed the whole Fag man episode [ series] :lol:

Never!!

This last 5th Season was good ( maybe the best so far), but I still can't watch the whole show. I just watch the sports car reviews, and those were good.

Top Gear hasn't been as good as it was.... but it still is the best TV show to see sports car reviews. The problem is they test the cars way after all the other TV shows, and sometimes I think they should left the humour apart, like in the last lightweight supercars feature with James May. I don't understand what he's doing there...

Indeed, I must admit that they're getting close, better on some point, maybe for the tests of the cars, but less coherent and funny as an all show. I will wait to watch this season of Top Gear to decide :wink:

5th Gear and TG both have 'Some' good features, but with both of them, you have to put up with some pretty poor features also, thank goodness the BBC momentarily cancelled TG, otherwise we wouldn't have 5th Gear! So, summing up, I kind of quite like both of them :)

I have abstained from voting!

I feel that the shows would be so much better, if they had put more details into their tests. Do more stuff, like they do in best motoring. Bring the competition to the track. If you're testing a 430, bring the 911 to the track, and do comparative testing. And longer segments.

pagani 10-23-2007 04:33 PM

Than again best motoring is 100 times better than topgear and fifth gear combined.
:D 8)

5th gear is good, but they really need a full hour time slot to really make the most of their show. Even then, they're a more objective sort of show which just doesn't have the charm of top gear.

^^ yeah .. but tiff and viki start fagging around a bit :\ ....
i still preffer topgear :)

5th Gear has definitely made big improvements within the past 2 seasons. Seems they were doing a bit of trial and error (fagjoy), and are now on the right path.

Top Gear will always be entertaining as long as JC is writing the scripts. Although to me, it is getting a little too cheesy, but still fun nonetheless.
