Default New season of top gear, who is watching?

About to watch today's episode. Has anyone else been watching?

The train part of last episode was hilarious, but the xjs/gtr comparison was pretty lame, of course the car with awd is going to have an advantage on a wet track.

Sadly today is the 5th of their now regular 6 episode seasons. So only one more left, then top gear us () starts.


So likes, dislikes, stuff you hope to see tested? How about Rowan Atkinson, who thought that Mr. Bean would be a car guy with a mclaren F1?


If you don't have the connections to grab it, http://jalopnik.com/ often posts links to the youtube videos once they are available.


God I hope this episode doesn't have anything about chrysler or else this might get closed, sorry if it does.

I am d/l all the episodes, Mr Bean was ridiculously fast, US top gear is pretty good, much better chemistry this time around.

It was a great episode, that "F1" segment was very entertaining and informative. I didn't know the importance of actually having a minimum speed to enter a corner otherwise the aero won't give you traction and you will fly off the course.

The "Interceptors" opening sequence was brilliant, and they should definitely make an episode just for the lulz.

Definitely one of the best non-car skits they've done. I mean the jensen interceptor is a cool looking car for the era it came from, but it was just an excuse to make that video.

Yeah they had already covered it on the news a couple of seasons back, Hammond karate chopping everyone and kicking that girl in the crotch was hilarious.

Missed the last 2 episodes, hopefully I will see them this weekend, they have been decent so far though



the us version sucks, I think that Adam Corrola show is much more entertaining, at least he's funny

+1, saw the first season and I didn't like it. I'm hesitant to watch the second season but many that feel the way I do say the 2nd season is much improved.

Guess I'll have to check it out again.

First episode was okay, this second one was good, and the upcoming one looks awesome, they're doing a Ford/Chevy/Dodge dually pickup challange, promo showed Tanner pulling a train, Adam pulling a house apart, shiz looks epic.

Has US Top Gear caught up to the UK already? This film from Sunday's episode makes a strong case.
