I know you watch Top Gear. Who can resist the trio of Jezza, Captain Slow and the Hamster?

Top Gear Xtra has been running from 2002 (I think) up til now, Series 10 is due in October. :) can't wait. They released the Top Gear Polar Special a couple of weeks ago, that was hilarious and amazing. Clarkson and May are now the holders of a world record, amazing.

Anyway.... favorite eps? stunts? cheap car challenges? epic races?

Yep, quarter of a billion viewers. Hammond crashed the Vampire jet dragster late last year (I think). Fortunately, he survived with no lasting damage...unfortunately, he is still my least favorite presenter of the show.

Haha yeah, I liked all of the cheap car challenges. If I had to choose a favorite though, I'd pick the American Road Trip one. Epic lulz for the entire episode.

First ep of Season 10 was last Sunday, new one in a couple of days...can't wait. First ep was hilarious, Clarkson's back with his characteristic humor...and Hammond looks dumb with his new hairstyle.

Double post, yesterday's episode was the Africa special. They had to buy a car for <1500 pounds, and then take it on a cross-continent tour of the desert. Hilarious as usual, but not quite up to their American adventure I thought.

lol it was awesome even if it wasnt as awesome as the american special but that's to be expected because africa isnt america, its africa(3rd world country) vs america(leading power country) lol.

SPOILER WARNING!!! lol


WOW!!! thats all i can say about this weeks top gear. not because of any new super cars(because there was none), but because of the F1 driver in the reasonably priced car, Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton, not only almost winning this years world championship(lost to Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and being a rookie at that, took on the top gear test track in the Suzuki Liana. Hamilton took one minute and 44.4 seconds to go around the track which put him in third place(0.3 seconds behind the Stig), if it were on a dry track. The track was soaked when Hamilton did his lap which puts him in first place. Hamilton said that he would come back to do a lap when the top gear track was dry. AMAZING!!!

yeah, I know... seriously amazing, the funny part was (as Clarkson pointed out) he didn't seem like he was racing seriously either.

Also, The News was about fifty times more hilarious than usual in yesterday's ep, so funny. American Hybrid, 'collision mitigating braking system', and May saving up for a car by eating pies XD

hahah, last Sunday's ep was the final installment in Season 10. Somewhat sad, but the stuff they did were awesome. I liked their G-Wiz with 40 batteries...and of course, the Top Gear Awards. XD

oh, and I suppose as a sort of seasonal celebration, I rewatched the Top Gear Polar Special.

Top Gear Season 11 is on its way.... dunno for sure when though, but it's on its way.

However, for those of you that are interested, another Top Gear Special has popped up - Top Ground Gear Force Sports Relief. XD I've finished the first ten minutes or so and it's pretty hilarious, the premise of the special is that they're taking over the 'extreme makeover' type show for someone's garden. Jeremy with his usual proactive and manly humor, Richard with his usual well-meaning but bumbling englishman type luck, and James with his methodical and old fashioned mannerisms xD

Top Gear is back! First ep of Series 12 aired today on BBC, nab it if you want. Great fun, reminded me of Series 9 where they started off using heavy machinery (big rigs this time).
