Quite Weird..

It's quite weird to be watching on Top Gear on an actual television since for more than 2 years, I've been watching on my computer. I think watching the show with Altec Lansing speakers is much better:P Have to say, this is quite an emotional episode cause to see Richard Hammond still alive and well after that horrific crash is just amazing. Almost cried... on Top Gear???!!!! Stranger things have happened before, I suppose.

But it was also a great episode. Jamie Oliver was absolutely fantastic as the Star-In-A-Reasonably-Priced-Car. The comparison between the Jag XKR and the Aston Martin Vantage V8 was nicely shot. The guys managed to re-surface a piece of road within 24 hours than a week. Of course, the finale was when they showed footages of the 300+mph Vampire that Richard drove before the crash and the crash itself. Is it worth putting someone's live through so much risk for entertainment? Dont think I'm qualified to answer that question. Top Gear has reconstructed the accident digitally based on the telemetry. Amazing and yet scary at the same time.
