Top Gear is one of my favorite shows. You have to download the shows if you want full episodes though. BBC America edits them. They also air the shows a year or so behind schedule.

Just a little heads up to BBC America channel viewers....


This weekend is literally Top Gear fever weekend. Starting Friday 9pm and almost non-stop til Monday night is all Top Gear. There's little breaks here and there for a movie or news through, but I thought I'd just give you guys a heads up. Set them DVR's, mine's already set.

Monday uncut series 15(the most recent series) will be aired. Well..apparently uncut. lol.

For sure Top Gear does some great shows. ie:Bugatti Veyron top speed test and the Peel P-50. These and others are on Youtube as well as a few other places. But 5th Gear does have greater drivers including Vicky (Victoria) so when it comes to pushing a vehicle to the limit it is a great show. Both are quite well done with a fair bit of humor added. Humor-wise maybe Top Gear comes out on top. Speedvision had 5th Gear years ago but unfortunately dropped it. I only see either on websites now.

I completely agree. I have watched both programs and when it comes to testing cars, I have found that 5th Gear is way better. Top Gear also does some great tests, but seems like they are always trying to make a joke out of everything. What I absolutely don't have any complain at all is of Top Gear Challenges. The Bolivia one is awesome. I get to see those on TGATITSBEST.. is a you tube channel...

I agree, it's the challenges that make the show epic. The reviews are interesting, but you really have to take what they say with a grain of salt. Clarkson is undoubtedly biased towards anything British or non-american (aside from the Ford GT, which he happens to be an owner of).

There are some great episodes, but my top three are the polar special, amphibious challenges (A ranger would have owned the toy-bota ) and the Bolivia special.

Tiff and Jason (sometimes Vickie) are as funny if not more than the TG trio imo, especially when they do reviews while drifting a 500k supercar. They also drive better than The Stigs combined (american stig sucked), they adapt better to the diff vehicles. If you need any proof, look how narrow their test track is compared to the TG landing strips.

Oh btw Tiff tested the Veyron before Clarkson and May .

Clarkson then bashed the GT the following year .

The Polar Special I saw..not the others...and it was quite a special..not something you could do in a day like most of the stuff on either.

http://www.finalgear.com/ here you can download torrent files of episodes of Top Gear, Fifth Gear and Top Gear-Australia. Click on the links to the right for each series and then you will see a list of episodes. 17 seasons for Fifth Gear ???..makes me feel older than I already am.
