The air force was allocated on an episode of Top Gear about 500 thousand dollars. It is not surprising that critics compare a TV show the show with a blockbuster.
«The scale of the staging, the filming, the epic review plans and pastiche from old movies — it seems that the show was aimed at big movie screen, not a TV or a smartphone, which I believe most will watch it — said the browser «BBC». Is something like a mix of «Mad max» and «easy rider». Maybe the small screen is just too small for Clarkson, Hammond and may’s, and from the Internet they have to go once in a great movie».
