    Top Gear

    Has anyone seen this show on BBC America? It's been described as "Part celebrity interview, part Jackass with cars." There's some serious car talk mixed in too.

    If you're into cars and British humor, you'll probably like this show.

    Definitely beats some of the trash reality shows we have and it's probably only a matter of time before there's a U.S. version.

    The Discovery Channel used to show episodes of Top Gear. It's a wonderfully entertaining show and there's countless clips of it available on Youtube.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Too bad they'll probably just screw it up like they did the American version of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    My favorite episode features James taking a Bugati Veyron onto the VW proving grounds which features a straightaway of over 5 miles..

    He hits 253 mph in it.. pretty damn awesome.

    Not sure if you guys remember this !!!!

    http://www.metacafe.com/watch/407616...ammonds_crash/

    This was big news in England at the time. Amazing that Richard survived this crash.

    Top Gear is one of the top programmes that is left on terrestrial tv in the UK. I dont watch every week but I do keep my eye open on what they are going to do in the next show.

    They did visit the states in this episode.
