top gear returns! the venerable series (series 23, to be exact) is back on bbc (or bbc america, for those of us in the usa) starting may 29 (or may 30 for those of us in the usa) ... i loved the previous series and the previous hosts (jeremy clarkson, richard hammond, james may) and while i still mourn that they have moved on to a new series (more detail in the future), i am still very, very excited about the new cast and crew of the original series.
it will be interesting to see how well the new hosts (chis evans, matt leblanc, sabine schmitz, chris harris, eddie jordan, rory reid, and the stig) get along, and how well they can carry forward the show. i am looking forward to this!
if the show can and the upcoming series can maintain it's reputation for high-quality, tongue-in-cheek auto journalism then it has a chance to succeed. the trailers that have been released thus far sure look promising.
