Top Gear, new season 2-25

Based on Top Gear's advertising hype, the new season begins with the 25th, more sardonic, British silliness. :smile:

I dont think bbc america carries any of the current episodes or episodes in their entirety. They can be had relatively easily off the net if you so choose.

I dont know about current, but I did watch 2-3 older episodes back to back the other day on BBC America.

I remember one was with the Veyron and the other a trip to the US (Fl to LA)

Bloody hell, batman.:eyebulge:Well, the show isn't free either though the cable bill won't draw too much money away from the monthly 135 payment. Just a week away from the new season.:roundel:

i watched a bunch of episodes on this site(they have a decent collection): http://www14.alluc.org/alluc/

and yes that trip to the U.S. was f*cking hilarious. i thought at least one of the three would be shot lol.

oh btw, does anybody have a better site where you can just stream the video so you dont have to download it?

New episode will present Oscar winner Helen Mirren stopping by the track in the Season 10 opener. Also: a search for the world's best driving road; the VW Golf is spotlighted. Description courtesy TV Guide.

I personally think that the search for the world's best driving road segment is the best segment Top Gear has ever done. The cinematography on Top Gear is just second to none and it really shows in that segment(s).
