Here in the U.S., TOP GEAR (Much Hated by some) is on BBC AMERICA since we here in the states are slipping a bit on making good tele. I honestly love this show, and didn't realize how I missed it til they whipped out the Paggani (SP) and their usual brit banter. We have a TOP GEAR show here on History Channel and IMHO it's bloody puking awful. So I'm just thrilled Season 19 is finally airing in the states.

That's fast ! We usually have to wait half a year to get to see a new season of a US show.

But yeah, also totally happy that they're back ! biggrin.gif

Gotta be one of the best shows on TV in the UK, too. I saw an episode of the "Top Gear USA" they did, they were showing it late at night on BBC3. It just didn't work, it was like they took UK Top Gear and replaced the presenters with emotionless androids.

My favourite episodes are the "specials", like when they drove that Toyota Hilux to the north pole, that was epic.

Agreed smile.gif And the one where James ran the Hilux in to an active volcano and caused that ash cloud that grounded planes in all of Europe smile.gif

It's one programme where you know some of the 'spontaneous' stuff is scripted but you really don't care.

I used to love that show, but it gets a bit old how Jeremy Clarkson just has to crap on anything from America, be it cars or anything else. He did punch Piers Morgan in the face though...so I will always appreciate that about him!

Did he ? He deserves a knighthood for that. Surely that evens out the rest of his moronic-ness ? biggrin.gif
