Who needs a would be drama from some hack called Abrams when you can have a factual entertainment show called Top Gear.

Unlike Lost, Top Gear is still going strong since it's 2002 inception.

Jeremy, James and Richard have made amphibious cars, people carriers, Reliant Robin Space shuttles, rally cars, cheap police cars, VW Scirocco ads, caravan conkers, caravan trains and mobility scooters.

And you guys think that Lost is better than Top Gear?

The political correctness brigade has damaged many T.V. programes, however I'm glad to report that Top Gear is one of the few programes that's unharmed.

This is action and suspense at it's very best on T.V.. Jack Bauer kicks major ass, no one can ever beat him, old school action, best main character on a T.V. show ever, suspense is golden, each character, even some you expect to be generic are all diverse, unique and are always tangled or involved in the plot.

17 The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.
