Shouldn't the new season be on BBC America channel??
I always record Top Gear but have not seen the new shows yet.

negative. they always wait a few months after the new season has aired before airing it on BBCA. that's why you just have to look on youtube or streetfire to get the episode the day after it aired in the UK. so all the "new" episodes you see on BBC are already like 6 months old.

The Christmas special was decidedly "meh", but last nights was quite good, and the teaser for the rest of the season looked awesome (as per usual).

Agreed.


Hamster waiting for the tow truck and being ignored was hilarious :lol:

IIRC all of them are on the lap board already....

McLaren: 1:16.2
Lambo: 1:16.5
Noble: 1:17.7
458: 1:19.1

......in the right hands, the MP4 is simply amazing

didn't want to start a new thread but I have begun to like the Top Gear USA show lately.... Tonights Merkur vs Caddy vs SVX was pretty funny.

Next week will be a VW TDi feature from the preview I seen....

I watched the first episode of the first season, and haven't watched it since.
I've heard it's gotten a lot better, but Tanner Foust bugs the shit out of me.
I really wanted to see the episode with the XR4Ti, but I just couldn't make myself watch it.
