Guess that's why I love the show and them though.
Well you have to remember that, for them, it's not all about sporty. It's more about the all around package of the car that they can't find anything wrong with it. Jeremy said for a while that one of the best cars around was a Volvo XC90...and I think he owned something like three of them.

Even when it comes to sporty cars, they don't agree. Jeremy is very much about British cars like McLaren and Rolls, James is more about Ferrari and unique cars, Richard is more about American cars and Porsches.

Im so glad theyre still going to be doing what they love doing. The real life automotive version of life aquatic. I am going to miss the presentation and the audience participation.
I really enjoyed this season and even somehow managed to get my girl to watch it with me and to my surprise witness her laughing to my heroes

Recently rewatched Top Gear seasons 1-22, not gonna lie the thought of getting old hits hard. Hammond is like 50 years old now, when the started he was in his 30s...

It's not season 4, it's just one special.

I watched the Seamen special last night, legit I fell asleep for about five minuets. I'm 36 with two toddlers. Old and tired lol.

I thought it was a good episode, I did like the fact they made fun of each other for doing a boat show. Also the Top Gear reference at the end.

Anyone watch any of the new Top Gears with the most recent lineup? Its not bad, best chemistry amongst the hosts since Clarkson and Co left, nothing will compare to them but if you go into it not expecting old Top Gear its a pretty entertaining show.

Where are you finding the episodes?

I watched the season immediately after the cast change and it was terrible. The one after that was much better but I haven't been able to stream them since.

My lawyer downloaded them for me

The Chris Evans season was horrible, the Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid seasons were much better, the newest lineup is even better.

Not really sure of car pedigree of Paddy McGuinness (comedian) or Freddie Flintoff (cricket player) but they are entertaining. The interactions don't seemed forced like the LeBlanc seasons, more like they just let them loose to do whatever they want.
