Having read this thread I was worried about watching it, but I actually enjoyed it and did not think it was any more contrived than in previous series.

Now then, how do I get myself a lime green Lambo??

Great thing about Magnums is that if you go to jump out but get your feet stuck in something (sheeting ropes in this instance) as you pivot downwards your forehead hits the one of the wheel nuts. I still have the bump under my skin to show for it. Rather cool looking thing though is a Magnum. Couldn't keep up with the big Turbo Scania V8's though :wink:

I really like the show, but it is getting "uncomfortable" at times as I watch it with my 10 year old son. Explaining what a prostitute is isn't fun.
