I certainly hope so, it would be great to see all of them leave BBC2 and recreate the show elsewhere.This is going to bite the BBC squarely in the arse...
Yet it's stupid to get rid of him at all, he is the only reason they have a successful show. Without him, they lose the #1 show they own. That's like Disney saying they're going to stop releasing Frozen because they're mad at the director.There's no top gear without him. The BBC has had it's politically correct panties in a bunch over him for awhile now and this was the thing they needed to get rid of him. So far in comments on various sites there's more support for him than the BBC or the person he fought with. Actually most folks think the other person is the one who needs fired.
I wonder if they will refund my TV license fee, it's the only show on the TV I watch live.I've been an avid fan of Top Gear ever since it was re-formatted in the early 2000's and without Clarkson there simply is no show. The brilliance of TG is the chemistry between Clarkson, Hammond and May. If you take any one of them off the show it just wouldn't be the same as evidenced in some of the specials they have done between seasons where it's just two of them together. There's no arguing that Clarkson is an arrogant, pompous blowhard and I'm sure he's a miserable guy to be around in real life, but he's damn good on the show and I hope the BBC reinstates him as soon as possible because I really want to see the final three episodes of this season.
Btw, that petition is over 865,000 signatures now so hopefully the BBC will get the message and realize that it's not fair to punish the viewers by keeping him on the sidelines.
well said.Haha. People are offended by everything these days. We've become a race of whining politically correct baby's offended at the drop of a hat. His character is what makes the show. Maybe the producer was an ass and needed to be put in his place.Its probably just a publicity stunt though.
Love how Hammond and May refused to go on without him. They're the Three Musketeers and it's all or nothing. :thumbsup
