    I like James May's flowered shirts. You make good threads, renchfrieswith.

    True, that's why you should be picky in what you watch. Top Gear is a great choice. One hour a week can't hurt, especially if you're laughing at witty British humor most of that time.

    I've been watching the show for over 10 years now. Best show on TV. I love it how different countries try to make their own version of it, and fail miserably. There's only one original.

    The cinematography on that show surpasses some Hollywood movies, and the things they do with their insane budget is amazing.

    visually I don't think I have ever seen a show on the level of top gear . I have been watching for about the same time as you . My girl had no interest in cars but quickly became a fan .

    For sure. In the last episode it was revealed they have a team of over 30 people with them during their adventures.

    Same here. It's not just a car show, it's also a comedy show. Their "news" segment is always hilarious, and the three of them play really well off each other. Jeremy Clarkson is a genius, and I love that he's not afraid to offend.

    I get genuinely excited about every new season, especially their specials.
    I did catch some here and there, but they're really at their best when they're together. The side series I enjoyed the most was "Jeremy Clarkson meets the neighbours".
    It really conveyed yet again that most of South America is still third world.

    The US Special was a great one. They got chased out of Alabama by a bunch of rednecks that pelted them with rocks.

    Then they gave their cars away to a mission for free. Then were threatened by said mission with a lawsuit because one car was a 1989 Camaro instead of a 1991 as described.

    Welcome to America!
