    I'm giving it an 8. I know this is debatable and I absolutely hated the Sweeney crap (i'd give that alone a 2/10), but James' segment, the news and the SIARPC were all SO DAMN GOOD. I was hoping Ryan Reynolds would be the sarcastic, awesome guy he is in all his films, but I wasn't expecting it...

    I haven't seen the episode but fucking Christ...You all were TOLD that to us, tonight's episode would suck...and then you're giving it hell when it does....At least Clarkson and Wilman warned you and TOLD you that you wouldn't want to watch. At this point, it's your fault if you did watch, not...

    I liked pretty much the entire episode, except for the SIARPC. I know the producers don't have much control over that so i'm going to say 9/10. For a dude that's done as much as Bob Geldof, you'd have expected him to be much more interesting. The Interceptor and Lotus reviews were classic TG...

    Top Gear America Returns July 24th

    If that's true, TGUSA might actually go from being the #4 (worldwide) car show IMO to #2 (nothing could EVER beat TGUK).

    Top Gear America Returns July 24th

    Yes, in comparison to TGUK Series 1, TGUSA is a lot better. HOWEVER, TGUK had nothing to base off of for Series 1. All they had was old Top Gear which was cancelled due to appalingly low viewership so you really can't work off that if you want to create a successful show. Top Gear USA on the...

    Most expensive Top Gear segments?

    Actually, I believe that was surprisingly cheap because they decided to shoot it in places where Clarkson was going to be anyway. Spain and Switzerland either for his DVD (Thriller (?)) or that RWD segment from Series 13, Australia because of either Top Gear Live or Clarkson was there to work...

    I haven't seen the episode yet, but if the new Stig is Tiff Needell, he likes powersliding and in his review of the McLaren on Fifth Gear, he said it doesn't want to slide at all.

    I gave this episode a 9/10. The E-Type bit was just awesome and I really likely the Mini, 1M and Alice Cooper stuff, it just loses a point because while it was all quite good, I wasn't a very big fan of the Marauder segment.

    I'm abstaining from voting in the poll because I have a hard time with judging this episode. If i'm judging it soley on its own, prolly 8/10. The segment with the GM's was good, no complaints, the news was a bit short and Tony Hawk wasn't the greatest guest (I think he'd have done better if...

    You have a point, Charlie was annoying, but he was far better than Ewen and Shane were in this episode at least.

    Howdy, i'm JD. Some of you may know me as the new FinalGear IRC Admin...and i haven't done one of these for a long time so I forgot to think of a second thing. :P I'm from the US (unfortunately, don't hold it against me), but i'd love to move to the UK. I got into Top Gear in December 2008...

    [03x01] October 19th, 2010

    I gave it a 3/10 . This episode felt really horribly done after The Ashes special was so epic. The hosts aren't very good or fun (except Steve, but he's been with TGA since the begining so he should be decent by now, which he is), the car review was pointless and it just felt like they were...

    [14x06] December 27th, 2009 [South America Special]

    I gave the episode a 10/10. I thought the beginning was sort of typical Top Gear cocking about (the sort from back in the day) trying to get the cars off the barge. The scenes of the presenters looking bad-ass cutting through rainforest and then them only having made like 50 feet was...
