    Any Top Gear megafans out there?
    I love both the UK and USA versions and I watched both of the new episodes tonight.

    Im really starting to like the USA Version. Its honestly really humorous and the challenges are really fun to watch. The cast gets along well. Its definately the best car-related show on in the US.

    Top Gear UK will forever be awesome. Probably one of the best shows on in the world.

    First thing I did when I got home was to hunt down TGUK and watch the review of the Aventador. Love that damn car.

    I love top gear UK! my first episode I ever watched was years ago when clarkson took a land rover disovery up some sort of "ecologically fragile" hill in the UK to test out it's off roading capabilities. the next episode they were flooded with hate mail. :) 

    never watched, nor had the desire to watch the US ones.

    I love Top Gear UK, but I couldn't stand Top Gear USA. I tried to watch the first episode and it was painful.

    I'll stick with James, Jeremy, and Richard thank you! Long live Captain Slow and Hamster! :)

    I'm a casual fan of the show, because if a British person hasn't seen an episode of Top Gear then something is wrong with them :lol 

    Clarkson is the funniest by far.

    i got hooked on it ~3 years ago. only seen it sporadically because of various reasons. now, i am glued to BBCAmerica and try to watch it whenever it's on.

    when they mock something, it is so outright cruel, that it becomes comedy gold.

    oddly, sometimes i think of Top Gear when i listen to the WTF@TFW podcasts when someone rants hard on a toy,

    I love Top Gear, I love Jeremy's crazy imagery when describing a car

    "It's like a lion in Orange Dungarees" AMAZING

    Top Gear UK is way better than our US version. I've got a series recording on my DVR on BBC America.

    Yeah that was a nice tribute in many ways. Especially surprised they said "Former Stig" Guess when they reach maturity they become human.

    I like watching TGUSA for the sake of it being a car show. I just hope the American version isn't a sell out and they try their best to keep the American cars at the top of the board. While I like the concept I know America cant hold the lead across the market.

    Is there a way I can see the new episodes of Top Gear, because BBC America shows previous seasons not the new one. :(

    Agreed, the 1st few eps were really painful, but it's gotten much better since then. They really found their groove. I'd say check out some of the newer eps.

    The episode when they are trying to build a train and the guest is Rowan Atkinson is one of the best episode of the series imo.
