Every year since 1996, Jeremy Clarkson has released his own brand of annual DVDs, all of which have had a very similar flair throughout. Each DVD will normally contain its own theme, and are often a good source of entertainment, even if not quite as sophisticated as Top Gear.

In this release, Jeremy sets out to find "the most fun car of 2003", after proclaiming that this particular year was one of the best for new cars in the history of the motor car. Unfortunately however, this is its downfall and because of this it is my least favourite out of all of his DVDs - it is all very linear and basically consists of a string of car reviews, all of which have been recycled from Top Gear so this release basically feels like a Top Gear re-run overall. Every car here was featured in the same year on Top Gear, and unlike previous releases this theme is never deviated from, which results in absolutely no outrageousness whatsoever. As well as cheesy guitar music throughout, these releases also have an annual tradition of Clarkson destroying "some kind of awful car", which for me is always the highlight. In this instance, Jeremy destroys:

Nothing - unless you count the caravan that was towed on its roof by a Range Rover, Clarkson does not destroy a distasteful car in any shape or form this time, which is another reason why it is my least favourite. I still don't understand why he ruined the tradition, but fortunately it has been fulfilled in his successive release.

These destruction acts, plus the remaining ones in all of his DVDs, can be found in a recent mix I made - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TzNeEHhARY

Sounds like he's just ripping people off, recycling old Top Gear material, Top Gear repeats are regularly shown on UK Gold anyway. I saw Clarkson's "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" today in HMV for £15, it shouldn't cost that much (considering you can often find Clarkson's old videos in Oxfam shops for a couple of quid).

It is true, but this one suffered the most as it contained almost no truly unique material at all. After Christmas, his new DVDs always plummet to about £5 at online retailers :lol:
