Editorial Reviews

Top Gear 17 begins with Jeremy throwing a low key party for the 50th anniversary of the legendary Jaguar E-type—complete with live music, classic fighter planes and a group of Royal Marines. Richard Hammond finds himself in South Africa testing a bigger, even more rugged alternative to the famous Hummer while James May meets up with gold medal winning British Olympian Amy Williams for a wintry test of the latest Mini rally car. The boys then head to Italy to take part in a series of tricky challenges (and increasingly loud arguments) as they attempt to find the world's best hot hatchback. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a full track test of the incredible McLaren MP4-12C as it meets its deadliest supercar rival, the Ferrari 458. “Celebrities in a Reasonably Priced Car” include rock legend Alice Cooper, comedian Ross Noble and Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel. It’s more madness, mayhem, and motor hilarity with the world’s most popular car entertainment show, Top Gear!

5.0 out of 5 stars This show keeps getting better and better! November 16, 2011

You've gotta love the British humor. Anyone who can appreciate cars in the slightest can enjoy this show, in my opinion. I love how Hammond starts out the series with a "BANG", pun intended!

5.0 out of 5 stars TopNotch May 25, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What more can we say to these chaps, they are true to their audience and are bloody fantastic hosts'. There is no other motoring show like UK/TopGear. The choice of cars and other type of vehicles they review have always been top-notch, the machines always take center stage.

3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE! 7th Episode Missing!!! February 1, 2012
Don't get me wrong. I absolutely LOVE Top Gear UK (sorry Top Gear US, but you suck!).
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.

Since Netflix takes forever to make newer seasons available for streaming, and Comcast OnDemand doesn't have the episodes I wanna watch, I decided to buy season 17 here.

Brilliant! Streaming is great. I had no issues at all. But... was I surprised when I learned that there's a 7th episode (the India Special) that Amazon simply "forgot" to include in the season. So... You buy the "entire" season 17 but you get only 6 out of 7 episodes.

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.

Btw... same deception happened when I bought one specific episode (the one with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz) because there's a ~12 min. homage for what would be Ayrton Senna's 50-year b-day. Once again, surprise! Exactly that last portion of the episode was stripped out from the version I bought from Amazon.com. Money in the trash can once again :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Show July 14, 2013
By pops95b
Format:Amazon Instant Video
There is no other show that I would possibly recommend as strongly as TOP GEAR UK! It is my favorite show even though it is about cars and I am a girl. It has thought me quite a bit and I love the byplay between the guys!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome season May 13, 2012
By Cheryl
Format:Blu-ray
The only thing that is preventing this from having a complete 5 star review is the fact that there were no epic challenges. Other than that it was amazing as usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great show April 21, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Decided to plunk down the extra cash for the blu ray version because the netflix quality stream is not the greatest. Going from that to this blu ray was night and day. I was a little miffed that they did not decide to release Season 18 in blu ray due to "lack of demand". That is one sale they missed from me. I just watched it on netflix instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining! December 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
My sons and husband love Top Gear. Me, I've gotta be in the mood for it, but do find it amusing on occasion. Only problem is they're able to get the episodes free from our local library. I purchased this one as a special treat for them because it's brand new and they've not seen it yet. They loved it because it featured one of their (collective) favorite cars, a Jaguar something or other :-) I prefer the Black Adder series for my British Humor fix :-)

BBC Top Gear is always awesome! I wish they would come out with more season on blu-ray. Looks amazing and I don't have to watch it only on the computer now.
