Fifth Gear/Top Gear

Are these 2 different shows? They seem to be used interchangeably.

Yes, just a similar name.

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

Excellent show. Makes Speed's Sports Car Revolution look decidedly amateurish.

Oh, and now I see what all the hubbub is with Vicki Whatever Anderson

I would still prefer Top Gear as I find it much more entertaining. I don't think I've ever heard Tiff not like a car he's reviewing. That said, I'd rather have either one of these shows to watch than the NASCAR shows that seem to be the bulk of Speed channel's programming.

Yes, the Alfa looks great. What struck me though is how she drove it on the race track. One hand, barely touching the wheel. That just looked so lame.

I wonder why they showed such old shows? I've seen both of those shows before online - maybe even a year ago. hmm..

I'm happy they showed it, but I would have prefered Top Gear.
