Clarkson Powered Up

If youíve ever watched Top Gear and thought ďI wish those other two guys would disappear and we could just have an hour or Jeremy reviewing cars I could never hope to ownĒ then boy do I have the DVD for you!

Clarkson (Powered Up) is the Top Gear you have when you donít want any Top Gear. Itís apparently a yearly event where Clarkson goes through the cars that heís been particularly fond of in the past year and drives them around a track very fast. So in that way itís not very different from Top Gear at all. Itís filmed like Top Gear (beautifully) it references Top Gear but itís just Clarkson yelling ďPower!Ē as he slides through a corner backwards in a million dollar supercar.

Unlike a lot of people, I actually like Jeremy Clarkson but thereís no doubt in my mind that what makes Top Gear one of the highest rating TV shows on earth. It is the interplay between the three hosts, that and the challenges, remember the one where they tried to send a Reliant Robin into space!? And there really is such a thing as too much Jeremy Clarkson.  Fortunately even Clarkson knows this and limits the DVD to an hour which either represents poor value for money or tremendous value for money depending on your perspective. 

That said the cars are beautiful and if you even have a passing interest in super cars there will be something here for you to drool over. I myself was in desperate need to a sponge after Clarkson showed us the Eagle Spitfire a new version of the E-type Jaguar.

All in all itís interesting for car fanatics but itís no Top Gear.

Special Features:  A Behind the scenes documentaryÖ.why would you?

Video: Like everything Top Gear produces it looks amazing, the DVD is beautifully produced and shows off the fact that the Top Gear boys really know how to film a car.

Audio: Just stereo but thatís more than enough to hear Clarkson and also more than enough to hear the engines of the cars.
