One of the presenters (Jeremy) thinks Americans cannot built decent cars, where Richard Hammond thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread. If you are really sensitive about someone from outside the U.S. saying something bad about the U.S. every once in a while, don't watch. That said, they have been to the U.S. at least twice if I remembered correctly, and both times I was very much amused. :) The episode where they drive through the American south was hilarious.


If you know of this episode coming on in advance, let me know!!

They might as well have been visiting Mars... :eek2: !rolling

I just looked at some 'Copper' videos on the BBC America website and it does look very interesting. There are also some photos from the new season of Doctor Who but beware they may contain some spoilers.

BBCA is my last major 'want' in HD. :)

It was a great episode, especially the things they spray painted like NASCAR Sucks. Though I think in that episode, or maybe another one, there was a serious moment in New Orleans, seeing the damage a few years after Katrina.

Y'know, if Sixto sees this. . . between the "6 per" developments, the number of Top 10 from the 2011 poll that are now added, and new HD launches in the interim (TV Land HD, for instance, didn't launch until late 2011). . . perhaps it might finally, reasonably, be time for a new DBSTalk poll on new HD priorities. . .

Yep, thinking come Fall, let these settle in a little, and then new poll.

Still no sign of it in the apps.

That don't mean it won't be here tomorrow though, but we do have reason to doubt it...
