Default Are you missing Top Gear?

The latest series of top gear is the most outrageous yet! Its also side splittingly funny and i have found a great website that has archived every episode.

Go to finalgear.com and click on downloads, just choose the episode you want to watch and it will download using your bit torrent programme (if you dont have one it gives you full instructions on getting one), they also have episodes of the poor mans top gear, 5th gear.

Honestly, season 7 is great, they bring paris to a standstill on episode 3. Great stuff!

They show it on the discovery channel. Not sure how long it takes them to get the new shows though.

BBC Canada is 1-2 years behind with TOP GEAR.

JC is the greatest - without him the show would be dead.

The "Hampster" is good as well.

The "real ale" guy helps provide a good cross section of presenting styles.

I rate this motoring show the best available.

With regard to that crap motoring show filmed in Vancouver BC - presented by that Canadian Semi-Hill Billy and that prat from Birmingham UK -

IT`S RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBBISH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discovery has just finished filming a pilot episode for US Top Gear... im sure it will be crap. They flew the Stig out to drive some cars around their track and he smashed all their best times! Come On The Stig!

Honestly, this series 7 is a Must See.. they have only filmed 6 shows (usually do 11 or 12) but so far they are gggggreat, they even won an emmy!

OMG Top Gear just finished and it didnt dissapoint... they started with the new Marcos for 10 minutes.. the rest of the show was the Veyron. The race it from italy to london...against a plane!
This car costs £800,000 to buy but costs £5mil to make! They are just doing it to prove it can be done. This car shocks JC cos its soo good.
And as the icing on the cake.... Nigel Mansel takes out the suzuki liana and beats teh lap record (even damon hill and mark webber)

It will be available to download tomorrow!

It's like they spent 10 minutes at the end of the programme and did speak to camera pieces especially for the yanks....

5th gear is a completely different show in england!! with vbh, tiff and some other sacked top gear people..
There is an interesting article in this months TG mag where they talk about the US edited episodes of TG. They cut out every reference to stupid americans and then edit the 59 min show down to 40 mins and even rerecord new filler pieces to market it to the americans! sounds like a pile of steaming brown stuff to me... i think they have to cut 2 whole pieces per week refering to the septics!
Gotta love the clarkmeister!
