This season of Top Gear starts off with James, driving a Toyota Toyota Hilux into a volcano to see how invincible the truck truly is. This is the same vehicle they used on their Polar Special.
Then the team is sent out on a challenge to find used sport sedans for less then £5,000... you can only imagine all of their shenanigans and so call "challenges" they have to perform.
On episode three they pit two heavy weights against each other a Camaro SS vs. Merc Benz E63 AMG! That was one heck of a competition, and kind of surprised at the results. They also try to figure out which is the best four door supercar by driving a bride and groom (along with their families) to their wedding... lets just say keep the escorting of wedding gusts to the professionals.
Episode four was one of their DIY challenges. They attempt to build motorhomes on vehicles that they thought was better than dragging a caravan. If Lotus wanted to build a motor home, I'm sure they wouldn't have picked an Excel as it's main structure.
Episode five was cram packed with all sorts of goodies, including a race/review of a Volkswagen Touareg, a world record attempt, and Lewis Hamilton stops by.
The last episode of season fifteen was another challenge, they try to find out why the British sports car industry isn't doing so well by purchasing old roadsters for £5000. I probably laughed the hardest on this one.
The Blu-ray version also includes some behind the scenes with Celebs in the reasonably priced car, outtakes, and extended scenes.
I am very happy to see that the full episodes (run length approximately 370 minutes for six episodes) being released, not hacked up versions.
If you are a Top Gear fan of any sort, this Blu-ray is for you!
I've watched all seasons, episodes and specials and I'm really a bug fan. That's why I easily give all 5 stars to the show but only 3 in this review.
I bought this particular episode because is should contain a ~12 min. tribute to famous Brazilian F-1 driver Ayrton Senna for what would have been his 50th b-day. For my entire surprise, exactly this portion has been cut out in this version from Amazon.com.
WHAT A SHAME AMAZON!!!! You should AT LEAST make that "detail" very clear to your customers.
It's too bad that we still can't "return" a digital purchase. If I could, I would certainly have returned it. And this is not my first deception with this kind of purchase.
Although the men have a passion for cars they know the general population does not care about compression levels and cylinder heads and drive ratios, the general population wants to know if it is fun. Each show has several regular segments such as test driving some high performance, very expensive car at their test track, discussing car news, which can get a bit off topic and having celebrity guests which after a brief interview have to drive a lap on their test track to compare their driving skills to other celebrities who've already been there. The more memorable parts of the shows though are their adventures outside the studio when they try to show the `superiority' of cars to other forms of transport, usually in some silly race or explore a region in cars or most ludicrously, `improve' cars-something that usually results in crashes or fires or both.
Among the stand out challenges in this season are driving up the side of an active volcano, buying a used luxury car for less than 5K and see how well they held up and one of my favorites when they each try to build their own motor home. The phrase `how hard can it be?" invariably means something will go disastrously wrong. It also has one of my favorite interviews as the guest on one episode is the former Labor party speech writer, being interviewed by very conservative Jeremy.Read more ›

TG Blurays do not have the same music as the UK broadcast due no doubt to licensing costs. Other than that, it's TG so it's great.Published 1 month ago by Kevin
