I watch it as much as I can and also purchase the seasons through Itunes. Their challenges have made even my parents watch because of how ridiculous or cool they are.

Did anyone see the episode where they put a zo6 vette against a small low horse power car and ran them through the mall? Best episode i have ever seen.

My favorite has got to be when they launched a Reliant Robin. I get a kick out of their automotive challenges too. "Buy a car for less than $X and drive across Africa" or "can you really buy an italian supercar for less than $X? or "build an X within a budget of Y?" They usually end unsuccessfully, but with spectacular hilarity. We had a thread on here a while ago about a method to paint your car for $50. I think they could make a good episode out of that one. Each paint a car and try to win a car show trophy in the end. If it works at all, Captain Slow might be able to pull it off, but Jeremy and Richard don't have the patience.

Great show!!! My fav is the African desert crossing episode. I really like the Vietnam scooter episode. I would like to plan a trip like this for adventurist travelers. Scooter by day and messages and a nice place to stay by night.

Of course, it's the only show I watch. Been watching since 2002-2003ish. I've even seen some of the early 90's episodes when Top Gear was a totally different format. Jeremy looked ridiculous back then. Can't wait for the new episodes to start next week.

Was it the Ford Fiesta? That was the one where Jeremy drives it off the landing craft in a beach assault with the Military. "Hey Look at that, you can fit grenades in the cup holders!"

The Show I don't get is with the goof ball that buys a beater and had his mechanic work like a dog to fix it up and then sell it for the cost of the car and parts.

I like TurboMini have been watching TopGear forever. Gotta go with the Mini Launch as one of the best challenges as well. My wife will even sit through an episode with me. She usually ends up feeling bad for Capt Slow. OOOHHH, the caravan challenge was great, especially when they catch it on fire!!!! I have started to download the episodes via torrents. You can stay current with the BBC instead of a year or so behind like the BBCA is.
