Aside from their specials (Vietnam is the best show they've ever done followed by Bolivia in my opinion)I think season 8 is the high water mark of Top Gear UK. The amphibious boat episode is hilarious an possibly their best challenge, the caravan challenge is also worth watching. If you're a Clarkson fan, the interior design of the Mercedes is him at his best.

What a show! Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are exceptionally entertaining. From Season 8, I highly recommend the caravaning episode.

Whether you like cars or not this is an amazing show. I have seen every episode and still find re-watching them to be hilarious, props to Jeremy, Richard, and James. Keep up the good work!

An ecceptional find when having to wiat for any reason, an entertainment worth its rate. The humor is fun and the friviolity is uplifting. Top Gear is a unique and fun way to pass the time.

The show opens with a test drive of a Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, and an incredibly over powered Vauxhall (a first for James, he hates a British car). The Stig drives the cars.

They spend some time with the news. Jesus shows up again.

The guys really hate RV'ing - or caravanning as they say in England. They haul a trailer with the 2006 Caravan club of the year winner, a Kia hatchback. James drives and the other two complain for a long time. It's a reasonably funny report.

The segment is interrupted with a star in the reasonably priced car - Brian Cox. He's been in a ton of movies - Ward Abbott in the Bourne series is his more famous role.

Richard hangs around while they try to set a world indoor speed record for driving an F1 car inside. Of course The Stig does the driving. They compare the speed to a Lada, normal regular old sedan car. The US Top Gear did the same test, only Tanner did the driving, and the segment was way more interesting.

They finish the camping thing. Some pretty darn funny things happen. Larry, Moe, and Curly show up again to do some amazing things. Let's just say, the fire department gets involved.
