I do remember alot of great "EPIC!!!" episodes over the years, I have a huge collection and at one time in my life had 5 episodes to watch every midnight shift I was busting at the counter. Watch 5-6 episodes of TOP f***ckin GEAR and get paid!

I do enjoy the f1 cast in the dacia, but I feel as though they fell off after Iraq. The formula is still great, the cast is like our personal uncles in auto video journalism and I am x-ing my fingers for this season however they feel spoiled or not.

I'd like to see them change that up a bit and have some NASCAR drivers come over and drive the Dacia, and compare how the F1 and NASCAR drivers times match up could be a gold idea there

Well, to be fair, they do a couple of road courses a year.

If you do not like Top Gear you should be taken outside your house, and shot in front of your family.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

Clarkson will hate it. Then really hate it. Then love it. Then probably hate it again or maybe not.

So excited for this season, it seemingly kept getting pushed back, because of contract renegotiations

My GF follows them on Twitter, and found out, James May got in trouble for smoking a cigarette in (public)while in San Diego.
They left California, and went to Texas for F1, just a couple of months ago...so i am hoping for another US Road trip episode.
