    Top Gear once limited to BBC employees?

    I realize that this is pretty thin and not really credible, but I've never heard of this, so I wanted to know if it's true. I noticed this in a Youtube comment from "JohnnyKanuk" (In this video if you're curious) So he claims that he had a friend in the BBC who said that the Top Gear audience...

    Paolo Nutini's Candy is Country & Western!

    I was listening to BBC Radio 1 on XM and heard this. Evidently, it's quite popular in the UK, which I think is hilarious because it's just a country song. Just compare it to this. In fact, Nutini's song fits at least my conception of country better than anything I could find. The lyrics, the...

    1001 Things that could be powered by a V8 engine

    Baffling continuity error in Vietnam Special

    In the driving test, Jeremy uses James' Honda. When he gets off, he drops it and smashes the statue. But while he's taking the test, the statue isn't on the bike, as clearly seen at 47:08, just a few seconds before he drops it.

    US Channels playing Top Gear

    What American channels play Top Gear? BBC America has 6-season-old episodes (which are slightly cropped to accommodate commercials), so are there any other channels playing it? Of course BBC's only US stations are BBC America and Discovery & its sisters, which used to run a modified Top Gear...
