What you like to do in your spare time is no concern of ours.

Exactly my thoughts, I don't go posting in the Eurovision thread or Coronation Street thread.

Because it's a talky forum and I'm adding to the rich tapestry of negative comments - on a talky forum. I gave up on the last series, McGuinness makes me want to go all Led Zep on my TV so I won't be watching it.

It's not an either/or situation. You don't have to watch any of it. And let's face it, they're all pretty dire.

It's also a faintly idiotic, meaningless justification.

"I'll watch TG because there are other things on telly that I don't want to watch."

For me, Clarkson and co had gone stale a long time before they 'left'. Top Gear has always been a show that veered from outstanding episodes to mediocrity and back regardless of the presenters. The Grand Tour is further evidence CHM had shot their collective bolts and suffered from the same brilliance/mediocrity balance.

I will continue watching both regardless as I enjoy the shows, even the mediocre ones, because I love seeing cars on TV.

Pretty much how I feel about it, I’d even go as far as to say I don’t even mind Paddy that much anymore.
