Cool Cars on TV

Chris and Marty are back for a long discussion of the coolest car-adjacent TV shows, and a deep dive into CGI in films.

But first, more Senna news as Netflix announce a dramatic Senna series coming later in the year, and the manufacturer of the replica cars will sell you one too! Have we reached peak Senna? Tom Hartley Jnr has also shown off a collection of race used helmets too, including Senna's Donington '93 helmet!

Instead of a review, Chris and Marty discuss cars from TV. What did we miss? What other iconic TV cars are there?

In 'What has Henry Catchpole been driving this week?' it's a Blackpool tribute as the TVR Tuscan Speed Six hits 25 years so American can enjoy the smell of fibreglass and resin.

For what we have been watching this week - apart from lots of weird and wonderful TV clips with cars in - The Movie Rabbit Hole has started a big conversation about the use of 'no CGI' in movie marketing, and the subsequent VFX breakdowns including Gran Turismo. Is it no big deal, or a very big deal?
