That crow needs some more salt


Chris Evans says he's quitting BBC's car show Top Gear for the good of the show.
The show has struggled to draw an audience since it relaunched in May, with Evans and former Friends star Matt LeBlanc hosting. 
The revamped show, which airs in the USA on BBC America, attracted just 1.9 million viewers to its season finale Sunday — less than than half the 4.4 million who watched the show's return. 
“I have never worked with a more committed and driven team than the team I have worked with over the last twelve months. I feel like my standing aside is the single best thing I can now do to help the cause," Evans said in a statement released Monday by BBC. "I remain a huge fan of the show, always have been, always will be." 
He tweeted, "Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough." 
Mark Linsey, director of BBC Studios, says Evans believes that the remaining team will be able to "take the show forward and make it the hit we want it to be." 
The show was rebooted following the departures of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. The trio will host a new car show on Amazon Prime. 
"Chris is as funny as all three of them," LeBlanc told USA TODAY in May.
Ah, that sweet, delicious taste of schadenfreude...

What, I wonder, did the lads from old (i.e. GOOD) TOP GEAR think of this?



Well it's not like I expected anything different, after all. I HATED the idea of continuing the greatest TV show of all time with a bunch of wannabes.

Yet even I did not know just how bad things were at the Bullshit Broadcasting Corporation. I knew that they were fully SJW-converged, but I did at least expect them to carry on some of the old show's magic and hilarity.

They couldn't even do that much. Their viewership and their ratings absolutely tanked.

It is not the least bit surprising as to why this happened. The new show attempted to do everything that the old one did, but BIGGER and LOUDER and with MORE COWBELL.

Now, more cowbell works if you're Bruce Dickinson- yes, the Bruce Dickinson- and you're trying to get BLUE OYSTER CULT to record one of their most famous tracks ever.

But when you're a shouty ginger nerd and you've been handed the reins to the greatest TV show ever- I did mention that this is what TOP GEAR is, right?- then MOAR COWBELL isn't really going to cut it.

I mean, how badly do you have to cock up that Der Fuhrer himself hates your work?!


(These Downfall parodies will stop being funny someday. This is still not that day.)

We see this every time SJWs take over something that was built and maintained by the creative genius and hard work of better men and better minds. Like the shoggoths of Lovecraft's mythos, they cannot create for themselves; they can only imitate, in appallingly degenerate style, that which others have created.

When- not if, but when- their chosen ones fail, of course, SJWs immediately turn on their own. And so it is with Chris Evans, who is now being subjected to a witch hunt over old sexual assault claims. Those claims may be true- or they may not be. I have no idea whether he is innocent, though I hope for his sake that he is.

With SJWs, of course, "truth" has no meaning, so all it takes is for them to find an excuse to sacrifice their former chosen one to their dark gods.

And on that bombshell... let us turn our attentions to the upcoming debut of The Grand Tour, which features a much bigger budget than Flop Gear, much of the old production staff and crew (except for the bloke that Jezza punched in the physog, obviously), and all of the blokey madness, camaraderie, explosions, and EPIC SUPERCAR RACES that we have come to expect and love from our favourite petrolhead hooligans.

  1. They made their bed, now they have to sleep in it.

    Unfortunately when something fails because of SJW, SJWs will just say that proves it needs more SJW.

  2. To quote myself:

    "

    Thus is the basic disrespect of feminism.
    You give us the ten years of your youth. we repay you by supporting you for the forty years afterwards.
    Feminists waste the ten years of youth, and then expect the following forty years of loyalty.

    THAT is why, when the end comes, vocal feminists and ex-sluts deserve to be turned into reactor shielding. I sure as hell won't protect a woman over 30... in fact, if she's a slut, I won't protect one over twenty, since she's already wasted several years that should have been a man's."

    1. Erm... wrong post, I think. But a sound comment nonetheless.
