So I won't go on about how dry and average the Oscars were last night and how the TV ratings reflect that. I will say, however, that I'd like to find anyone involved with the development and production of the movie Enchanted and incinerate them on a pile of every DVD and CD soundtrack copy of that rancid film. A brief burst of carbon emissions and pollutants now will save us from more such dreck in the future.

Tonight it's all about the return of BBCA's motorhead-minded "Top Gear". Never has the witty repartee of 3 poncey Brits been so entertaining and enjoyable. Their featured guest in tonight's season premiere is none other than Oscar fave (sighted last night several times in the audience and as a presenter) Dame Helen Mirren. They have a chat with her and subjugate her to driving a gutless commuter car around a racetrack - brilliant and hilarious. The season hold many more surprise guests and stunts, such as driving converted automobiles (as boats) across the English Channel.
