Top gear is a great show; but sometimes the corny british stuff wears on me. It is nice to watch it though, and have all my predictions be right.

Top Gear is the best show on television. My favorite segments are the Koenigsegg (season 2 episode 7) and the Ariel Atom (season 5 episode 9).

Unfortunately, Final Gear had to remove the shows after they got a cease & desist from the BBC, but you can still get most of them from mininova.

On the plus side, they've taped some sort of "Americanized" editions which begin airing on the Discovery channel next Wednesday (click the episode titles for details).

The best thing about Top Gear is that::

Since they are not beholding the the manufacturers, they can, within legal limits, tell the truth--and they do! Sure they're biased toward Limey products, but you'll never hear more honest comments on this BBC program that you'll hear anywhere else.

A few years ago, I heard one commentator say how good a buy this particular car was. His fellow correspondent said, "What you crazy? Wait a year, buy it secondhand. It's the same car and save you can 25%!"

That's not only unusual for any car program--it's usual for any program you see nowadays.

THANKS!!! That's awesome news to hear. I just added it to my Tivo so I'll be sure to catch em.

I guess they are episodes from a few seasons ago? I checked out the descriptions, I know I haven't seen the first or second episode. But I know I've seen 3 and 4 already.

One of my favorite segments is when Jeremy raced the plane in a car. The suspense at the end as they were both getting close was really getting to me. They kept thinking they could hear him winding up the mountain roads behind the bus.

My All Time Favorite is when they compared the M3 to the S4. I thought the music they played when going back and forth showing each car was perfect.

I've only seen the Koenigsegg and Ford GT episodes (downloaded), but they were very entertaining.

This was my favorite scene just because it cracked me up. If you aren't familiar with it, it's when Jeremy Clarkson was comparing the Ferrari 360 CS to the Porsche GT3 RS.

Yes the famous race button in Ferrari's, btw the Enzo has one, puts out more HP.

The British humor wears on me very quickly.
