Posting this from the Quebec City airport, so this post will have to be brief.
Fifth Gear was canceled today — it will not be back according to The Daily Mail. While the show obviously wasn’t as entertaining to watch as Top Gear, it’s still a shame in my opinion.
However, Jonny Smith has been tweeting:
To answer all the tweets about Fifth Gear ending – I don’t know who the Daily Mail talked to, but nothing is official. TV is a fickle world.
FG is always compared to the big-budget epic movie monster that is TG. It can’t and won’t ever be TG. FG was always more, well, grass roots.
To be completely honest, it could be time for a fresh car TV show recipe. Right now I’m enjoying Industrial Junkie & motor journalism tho!
