My son is Top Gear mad and he watches endless repeats. Some of the episodes have been good, particularly the Top Gear Specials, but now I think it's too repetitive and has 'had its day'.

My DS watches at least three episodes a day, it us his substitute for reading; as some if you may know, I consider reading highly overrated and would rather DS follows his own natural path.

My DS is also an addict and quotes Jeremy Clarkson like scripture. Last week, in an effort to get some educational benefit from this addiction, I bought an excellent book called Car Science by Richard Hammond. DS loves it.

DD is a Top Gear addict - and No_Ball may be interested to hear she has read (and re-read) all Jeremy Clarkson's books. She is not what I would descibe as a prolific reader in fact she is a very discerning (narrow) reader - but really enjoys his books and has even bought them with her own money!

Thanks for the tip, didn't occur to me as I have all his books. Will try and tempt DS to read clarkson at least.

I even tried to blackmail DS and said if he read the deathly hallows part 2 book I would take him to see the movie, that didn't work and have still booked the tickets at Think Tank!!! :?

One thing I like about Top Gear is that the four of us watch it together (DD is 14 & DS 10) although I wouldn't watch it if I was the only one in :D

I think the only other thing we all like is the Apprentice.

Both sons and OH totally addicted.

DS1 had his appendix removed a couple of years ago. Whilst most of the childrens' ward had their bedside TV's tuned to CBBC, I had to put up with non stop Top Gear on Dave for 3 days - never watched it since!

We all love Top Gear in our house esp DS who watches endless repeats. I realise whole programme is managed and set -up etc but i dont care as it's often laugh out loud funny. I esp like the Robin Reliant episode, the stretch limo one was Fab too, and I loved Jeremy in that little wee car in the lift with Fiona Bruce at the Beeb,classic Tv.
