TopGear What's your favorite Episode???

Ok, I kind of hijacked a Tread so I thought I would start this one for fun...

Now there is a TopGear web page... You may get the US there is also a UK one..

My Favorite was when they raced Motor homes and smashed them up.. Also when the Toyota pickup with a Honda outboard motor that made it across the English Channel.. No Really it did....

Also when they went camping in an SOB and caught it on fire and the neighbors SOB too.. That was clasic

Now, You can watch it monday nights on BBC America. Cars that go 254 mph... What more could you want.....

Now most British show don't have commercials, They are shorter in the US becuase they have to put in comercials.....
The BBC do post shows on their web sites to download,, But being in the US you can't get them....
But there is a British web site called uknova that has all the British shows to download . including TopGear


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

Way too many great episodes to pick a fave.

The Stig is the funniest one. Vacationing and on a raft in the pool in full racing gear. Riding public transport across London.

I laughed my self silly watching "Hamster" trying to drive a real Formula 1 car and then to have that followed by Louis Hamilton in the reasonably priced car challenge.

I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

Mine is the episode where they arrive in Miami, FL and buy 3 junkers and drive them to New Orleans. That show will have you rolling on the floor. Especially the part where they write some "non politically correct slogans" on their vehicles. Then they pull into a gas station/mini-mart in the heart of the "Bible Belt" and get pelted with rocks by a bunch of angry rednecks. I never laughed so hard.

the show is a winner for sure. Even Wife likes it. Boy of course loves it.

favorite ..... if I had to choose one it would be the drive across the Serengetti. When Hammond named that car Oliver I knew that episode would be good.

The way they pick on each other is my favorite part of the show. Even above the car tests, etc. And I LOVE cars.

In addition, watching Jeremy squeeze himself into the cars, is a testament to his devotion to automobiles. I know this because I am even taller than he is. I struggle to get into most cars myself. I don't know how anyone over 6'5" can do it.

Top Gear, best show on TV.

I get my Top Gear fix from you can download the latest episodes. Can't say I have any single favorite, too bad we can make TV like this in America.

The Top Gear guys where back in America for a road test, so we will see them having fun in America in the next season.
