    Default requesting a top gear vs 5th gear poll

    Does any mod want to make a top gear vs 5th gear poll, just out of my own curiosity?

    Thanks in advance

    I think it's already known that top gear is so much more entertaining.

    I'm pretty sure almost everyone likes Top Gear better. Its way more enjoyable.

    Top gear, best car show ever. I'll still watch 5th gear here and there but it's not nearly as entertaining!

    Top gear is way better than Fifth gear, I watch both though.

    Top Gear is nothing w/o Jeremy Clarkson though.
    I think Fifth Gear has more depth in their cast, but all of them added still cant touch Clarkson.

    Top Gear.

    Top Gear is enjoyable to a much broader audience. It comes down to the massive budget, ridiculous challenges, and the dynamic between the hosts.

    Fifth Gear, while still good in its own right, is geared towards serious automotive enthusiasts that actually care about all types of motoring (as opposed to Top Gear who tends to show a 75% bias towards unattainable cars)

    That said, Top Gear wins my vote all day and night based soley around their brilliant use of cinematography, awesome displays of driving skill from the Stig and Clarkson, and entertainment value.

    Maybe because their both Brittish shows? 5th gear is similar to Top Gear, just a lot more serious about it.

    JC > Tiff Needell, in terms of entertainment value.

    Driving skill, debateable.

    I don't think driving skill is debatable, as great as Clarkson is he's nowhere near the driver that Tiff is.

    Tiff = Race Car Driver on TV
    Clarkson = TV personality who races cars... on TV
    I like cars.
