Arrow Top Gear on BBC America - This Monday Night!

Looks like a lot of us have had our wish granted. BBC America will air what looks like last seasons episodes of Top Gear. Hey, if we all watch it and blow through their expectations of how many car nuts in America love these shows It will stay

I'm just waiting for the posts saying that Jeremy Clarkson is an idiot because he says the occasional mean thing about BMW...

Seriously, though, I love Top Gear, and the most recent season was a good one.

I have been an avid Topgear consumer for many years - I just hope BBCA dosent think they need to censor it. Clarkson May and Hammond *commonly* beat down the US auto industry which is why the marketing department of the BBCA thought Topgear would not be a good fit in this country. I am just happy I have seen it uncut for every episode. Anyone see the race between the Toyota diesel pickup and the sled dog team a few weeks ago?

We shall see Monday night I suppose - cross your fingers that the legal a$$munchers will not have cut it.

Cheers

JaMa

I love Top Gear for one reason, and that is because it is so damn entertaining. I don't really take their reviews seriously( ie: the C6 Corvette almost breaking Hammonds back going over a pebble). But, I love Clarkson's humor. Once Clarkson leaves, Top Gear will die because Clarkson is Top Gear.

I think that's just because Clarkson loves Jags...

...btw I'm actually huge fan of BMI (Best Motoring International). They did a few nice comparos of JDM's best vs BMW Ms so they're not strictly limited to the whole Initial D thing.

I've been torrenting Top Gear for years now, so this is nothing exciting...

Are these going to be the "Americanized" episodes that were so terrible on Discovery Channel, a few years ago?

I hear you; this will be the first time we get to see it on a full screen on a couch

On a separate note, it looks like the BBC America schedule shows Top Gear will be playing all the way through September.

great show last night, so much nicer watching it on the couch on a big screen then on the computer, i think the thing i might like most about the show is the car leader board that gives you an idea of what the fastest cars really are (not 0-60 times)
