I hope this means BBC America is returning to their outstanding programming. I haven’t watched it in years. All they ever have is Dr. Who and the one about the race cars.

- Top Gear

A definite upper when things are quiet &/or blah…..

- Mucho better than the American “Top Gear” TV shows

- Three Brits with unlimited senses of humor - lauching a car on a NASA shuttle type rocket

- Richard with an American flag on a flagpole outside his classic estate mansion - and a classic Ford Mustang in the driveway

- Popoff?

The double agent that warned the FBI about Pearl Harbor well in advance?

- Trying to recall the Brit actor (a cousin of Ian Fleming) who played “The Man With The Golden Gun” -

Best episode:

Jeremy Clarkson Skeet Shooting

Although his ride in a U2 was quite impressive as well....

I love the Top Gear hosts’ senses of humor! To me, it’s as much a comedy show as a car show, although a good supercar is sure easy on the eyes. And how about driving a pickup truck across the English Channel???

- James May - U2 ride : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PmYItnlY5M

- All the many places these three go and the things they do -

- They are healthier than the average bear (maybe Jeremy Clarkson and James May cannot run but when they crank out 200mph plus as I sip my well chilled Corona I cannot help admiring them)

- I however will pass on taking a used beat up Range Rover on a cobbled up raft across a river filled with crocs &/or hippos.

2012 was the 50th anniversary of the Bond movies. They seem a tad late releasing this now.
