Think it was good that they showed crash just to let us see the extent of the injurys richard hammond must of faced and how serious it was. Fully understand why he dosen't want the crash mentioned for the rest of the series though - He definately has my full respect anyway!
Very funny start to the new series. Hamster was class fair play to him, not many would take it on the chin the way he has with regards to the mickey taking etc. That said, Clarkson was at his bedside so they must be good buddies anyway.
