Top Gear

So as some of you know the new season of Top Gear starts tonight at 8pm. Here I am, getting ready, so stoked to see Hammond, Clarkson and The Stig again. So I turn on BBC (I have Comcast here in North Florida) and come to the sour realization that it is being aired on BBC2, which Comcast doesn't broadcast AHHHH. Any ideas where I can watch this tonight?

Do we even get BBC TWO in the states? I thought the new series of Top Gear was only airing in the UK (except via bit torrents, of course).

It was pretty awesome. Part of the challenge had me crying with laughter!

And how on earth could the OP forget to mention the genius that is James May?!

BBC America does air top gear, but I'm not sure if there is a delay in air date. However, the BBC America version is cut down for adverts (as those in the UK say), therefore the torrent version it is for me.

And yes, Captain Slow FTW.

If you want to go green buy a BMW M3, it's more green than a prius under certain conditions!

Really? I thought it was sort of a dud. I mean, I know they will get better as the season goes on, but this one didn't seem special at all. The episodes where they treked across Botswana and the one where they made stretch limos -- those were great.

Top Gear goes caravanning is hands down the best of all time.

I thought the episode was good, not the best, but good.

If you want the latest and you don't live in UK, torrent is the only way.
