    If you have people in your life that you still haven't converted to cars using the gospel of Top Gear, you better do it quickly: most seasons of the BBC show will disappear from Netflix's streaming service at the end of this month. Darn! Darny darn!1

    Right now on Netflix you can stream seasons two through 20, the one that aired in 2013. But due to contract changes between the BBC and Netflix, seasons two through 16 are on the way out soon,Variety reports. That leaves seasons 17 though 20, which is something. 2

    Earlier in the month it looked as though all of the BBC's great shows, like Luther, the originalHouse of Cards and Doctor Who, would be disappearing from the service.

    That ended up not being the case, although some seasons of those shows are out. Everything after Doctor Who season 7 will disappear.

    Time to binge watch Top Gear while you still can!

    I don't really know the ugly bastard that's interviewing them, though.

    Watch "Luther" before you dump it, if you have the time.

    That's DJ Christian O'Connell, he hosts The Breakfast Show on Absolute Radio. The TG boys go on his show quite a bit when they have things to promote.

    Yes I am :rench:

    I'm pretty sure they also remove a bunch of episodes from the US version of Netflix.

    That said, you guys have a much better selection than we do over here. When I was visiting the US last summer and logged into Netflix on my phone while killing time at the airport, I suddenly had access to a lot more movies and shows.
    Ah, thanks.
