clarkson and may in a seriously modified Toyota take on Hammond and
his dog sled in a 450 mile race to drive to the north pole over thin ice
to face in-tent hostilities polar bear and desperate food fantasies.
this is easily the best picture quality i have ever seen top gear. the colors are stunning the level of detail exquisite you can see every hair on the husky dog
the tread on the huge wheels of the Toyota pickup truck you could count them. the red paint work of the hilux a deep red that stands out against the
cloudless sky. you could also pick out the frozen hairs from clarkson and may
i felt that the sound quality just wasn't there when in part both clarkson and may were talking in the tent the sound just seemed slightly muffled overall it
really dident spoil the enjoyment in anyway.
this disk being the very first release of top gear on the blu-ray format i was just thrilled to own this disk and watch the challenge in such detail and very much looking forward to future releases of top gear in hi-def. and fully recommend this as a worthy addition to anyones collection
while it doesn't state anywhere on the blu-case that the feature is in 1080p
i probably couldn't tell either way if it was or wasn't.
it also states on the blu-case that due to the nature of filming in extreme environments some footage was not captured in full hd i didn't notice this either well this has been my first ever review hopefully i haven't done to badly.
