    Anyone watch this? I watch the British version on the BBC and I think it is absolutely hilarious! Not a big fan of the American version though....

    I absolutely love America, would defend it to the death, but.... The American version of top gear SUCKS. They took three nobodies and told them to have basically the same personalities that the BBC version does. It doesn't work and it's annoying. British version, Amazing and love it. Even when they talk about **** (cigarettes). I had to look that one up. lol

    The UK version is by far better, we all seem to agree. But the USA version is way better than is was, the hosts have kinda gelled. But the Brits still have it all over the domestic program.

    One of my all-time favorites is when they have to make police cars and they show up to the accident scene with bodies all over the place and they have ice cream truck music playing instead of a siren. I shit myself laughing.

    My favorite episode is when they are in south america and they have to get the SUV's off the barge that is left about 20 ft. in the middle of the river.

    tint, dents, scratches, two blown speakers and trying to pay her off...
    i loved that one too. my favorite part of any episode probably had to be when jeremy drove the reliant robin like 15 miles around england and rolled it on every curve. me and my brother were watching it together the first time and we were both quite literally crying. im not sure i've ever laughed that hard in my life.

    and to answer you question OP, yes, im a huge fan.

    and word to the wise, for any of you that ever want to buy a season, get if off amazon though their little watch instantly deal. its streaming unlike itunes, but it's much cheaper.
