A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Stephen Fry is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
Some seasons of Top Gear have an epic race in which Jeremy will drive a car against James and Richard taking public transport or any other transport that is not a car. Here are some of the epic races they had. Season 4: Race to Monte Carlo: Aston Martin DB9 VS. train, Season 5: Race to Verbier, Switzerland: Ferrari 612 Scaglietti VS. plane. Season 6: Race to Oslo, Norway: Mercedes-Benz SLR McClaren VS. boat. Season 7: Race from Italy to England: Buggati Veyron VS. James' plane. Season 11: Race across Japan: Nissan GT-R VS. Japan's most reliable public transport. See more »

Now the best gas guzzler of the year. And the nominations are: the Range Rover Sport which achieved eight miles to the gallon; the Bugatti Veyron which achieved four miles to the gallon; and Hemel Hempstead. That actually used up 60 million gallons of fuel and didn't move an inch.

In short, Top Gear is the ultimate TV car program. If you like cars, it's the thing to watch - and if you don't, watch it anyway because you don't need to be a petrolhead or car buff to enjoy it. Pure, undiluted fun. Three insane Brits who are not shy of giving devastating test summaries for cars that didn't cut it. Not to mention the other stuff they think up, be that the 1500 quid used Porsche test or Caravan Conkers...the list is almost endless. While other TV car shows feature lots of boring junk, the Top Gear crew isn't afraid of anything. If needs be they put on helmets and crash test cars into a wall at 30 mph.
Even my mother likes to watch it, and her interest in cars is limited to "I like how that one looks" at the very best.
Eat your heart out, Richard Brunstrom! ;^> JK'05 aka Elkrider
