    The Nick Mason book-swap episode? Unfortunately I watch it at least once a week.

    Thanks for the heads up! It was fantastic. The look on his face when he was driving the Enzo was priceless.

    The whole supercars section was great, but it seemed like there really was no resolution, just kind of random shorts thrown together. Very enjoyable nonetheless!

    The show will be OK. The REAL version makes the US version look like junk. After watching the real version, the US version seems to have lost its magic to me.
    Not hear to badmouth the US show, but only to encourage the watching of the UK version!

    I did find it singularly lacking in humour, which is the main draw. I didn't realize the episodes shown here were different. What a shame. Best to stay current and download the real thing off the web.

    I have of course never driven any of the supercars he drove, but I have to admit I already agree with his logic the F40 is better, it has a soul, all the new cars have computers. I liked his logic on that (maybe that is why I agreed with him)

    It was a great show, but my tv said it would have the F60 in the show... i dont really consider the Enzo and F60 but none the less the show was great... i found most of the enjoyment out of the crash tests at the end...hahah

    I use racingflix.com...Its free, but subscribing to get a quicker download rate has its great benefits, thats what I do! Once you are there, go to videos, road tests, and they should be all over that page. There are a ton of great videos so take your time and get them all!

    I know there are places where you can download entire epsidoes and not just segments like I do. They are bit torrent files though and I dont know enough about them to do it myself.

    The driving was really sloppy. Good for light entertainment only.

    I definitely have a new found respect for the F40, some of you will probably want to hit me over the head for saying that!

    It was a fantastic show, as good as last weeks! You can't bad mouth this show, what else on TV give "US" this type of car enthusiast exposure. Great to see these cars on their track and also when they show them on the street. They inject enthusiasm and humor into it as well, and it makes for a nice mix.

    Although the F-40 won and was apparently an even more visceral experience than the McLaren, I still prefer the styling of the Enzo as well as the F-50. But I also find something extremely appealing about the lines of the CGT, that car is just sooo sexy.
