Welcome fellow Petroheads.. This is the official Top Gear live thread!!!
This is the Top Gear Ping List.. Let me know if you want on or off this list!!
Bump.. thanks for the reminder, I almost forgot.
Looks like a trip through India to kick the series off.
Please add me to your Top Gear ping list. This is one of my very favorite shows.
Watching Jeremy Clarkson put down the eco-freaks is so pleasureful.
No problem.. That is why I like the UK Top Gear.. I get to see far away places for free..
Love Top Gear! The Corvair, Pinto, Suzuki episode (”Temp Death”) was the funniest thing I’ve seen on television in a LONG time.
One of my favorite laps:
Stig Caterham R500 Top Gear
One of my least favorite scenes (at about 6:36 into the video):
Top Gear Caterham Challange Part 1
I like the camping episode where Clarkson blows up the camper..
Wrong Top Gear. That is the American version which is not going to come even close to the British version.
Long Live The Stig!!
The American Top Gear was good this season. It is getting better..
Please add me as well. The Petrol-heads are the best.
Top Gear time!!!!
Such a crappy country..
Oh didn’t know there were Top Gear fans on FR :) I’ve been watching it for years, unfortunately (or fortunately) I watched the entire season already as it aired from the UK.
Wore my eye patch and grabbed me the episodes the next day (does my best pirate arrrrr), since we don’t get the current season on TV for many years here, please add me to the ping list too. Thanks.
Us Yanks are always a year behind the UK for any BBC shows.
Is the this one with the guys with the good or bad teeth?
Has the identity of the mysterious Stig ever been revealed or convincingly speculated about?
Michael Schumacher was one of the recent Stigs. Perry McCarthy and Ben Collins were also early Stigs. I think they have several each season.
Almost the only thing British that I can tolerate these days.
The U.S. version of this show stinks on ice... terrible.
It took a long time for the UK version to get into its stride.
The Beeb are making a concerted effort to bring the disparity in show times down. Doctor Who is only about 1-2 weeks now, and the Christmas specials are like 24 hours!
I hope you include all us UK freepers in the list of things you tolerate. I’d be desolated otherwise.
Schumacher’s “exposure” as the Stig was just a joke. The real Stig was an Army guy who trained soldiers in driving. He wrote a book about his experiences as the Stig and Top Gear fired him.
Some of their jokes are getting a bit predictable, but the wife and I had to laugh when the train tore their signs apart.
Add me to the list if you would. Thanks! (Of course I’ve already seen season 18 - usenet is your friend, or finalgear.com for torrents - but I promise not to post any spoilers.)
Thanks — did they reveal their identities on the show or did someone do some detective work to figure it out?
There has been several outings (and apparently the Schumaker one was a joke per another poster). I know one guy wrote a book and revealed who he was. (one of the early ‘black’ Stigs.)
