    What are the best things about Top Gear?

    Hi all,

    I'm a new watcher of Top Gear.

    Could you tell me what you think the best things about it are? Is it the celebrity guests? The challenges? The presenters?

    Send me some bullet points.

    Thanks!

    The banter
    Cheap car challenges whether local or cross countries.
    The News
    The amazing cinematography with new cars

    That's about it for me

    Good stuff! Do you have any other car shows that you would recommend?

    Assuming you are a genuine hooman and not a bot then I would suggest catching Roadkill on YouTube, particularly the earlier episodes. It has a raw and slightly amateur, naive charm that is reminiscent of Top Gear from the early 2000s and is eminently watchable.

    Start here:

    Jay IKEA now ranks up in my awesome list, quite near bacon and blowjobs.

    Season 4-8 are definitive highlights.

    8 - 9 are the weak ones for me. 1 is almost impossible to watch while 2 got better since the fat guy left. As odd as James can be, he works and I can't put my finger on why that is.

    If I had to choose right now.

    2-7, 10-13, 17, 20-22.

    His oddity is charming for most; and when he does things, he does things right.
