This season was pretty short and less exciting than the previous ones. I wonder what gives. Must be budget cuts.

They've always had a shockingly short season. Check out this site:

Show they haven't had a steady 10 episode since season 6

I also liked how the MX-5 got honorable mention for massively out selling the Elan.

Why can't I find DVD's of Top Gear seasons prior to Season 10?

If the BBC would pull their heads out of their asses and realize that Americans want to watch *new* episodes of TG, they could broadcast it on BBC America and make more from the advertizers.

Instead, we all go download the latest episodes and watch TG commercial-free. Their loss.

Comcast OnDemand is advertising episodes of TG that American's have never seen before, and have only been available via illegal downloading. So finally they're advertising correctly, yet the episodes are from season 6.

This season was short but it was pretty hysterical. The DIY RV episode had me dying, I was laughing so hard.

Netflix has season 10, 11 and 12 on instant view.

Love this show, except they freakin hate Americans, and the "star in a reasonably priced car" segment is boring as shizz.

And now they need a new Stig too.

New stig should be a girl in pink.

Yes. Perry McCarthy or someone like that. He was too mouthy and did the same thing as Ben Collins (wrote an autobiography including saying he was the stig) only two years after he started. They killed him off by jumping him off the deck of an aircraft carrier. Some say he took seven years to swim back to shore and will now return. And that that video is a fan made fake.

This is by far the best automotive show on TV. And my only thought that whole time theyt were crushing the car is "I hope they remove those Sparco's I really want them!"

Thread Necro FTW!!

Anyway, Top Gear specials on the 21st and 26th of Dec.

Spoiler (possibly):




Rumor is Clarkson has an NB, May has a z3, and Hammond has a Barchetta and they drive from Iraq - Israel or something along those lines:
