I have viewed every episode of Top Gear and I enjoyed everyone of them. I have made several attempts to purchase Top Gear on dvd for my personal collection, but failed every time. Fortunately I am able to purchase Top Gear through Amazon's video service. For some reason Seasons 1 through 5 are not available, despite the fact that I am willing and able to pay MONEY for them. This makes me unhappy. I am a dissatisfied customer. But oh-well, I guess no one cares. Nevertheless, for those of you who somehow have not viewed or heard of Top Gear then you are missing out. Watch Top Gear, you'll love it.

Highly recommended for teenagers. My 13 and 14-year old teen just LOVE this show. They learn about cars, speed, building, etc... There can be some raw humor, but I do not think they get it some times.

Jeremy drives a BMW 5 series diesel, this is something special for the program, they have never done an in depth review of a diesel. The segment finishes up with Jeremy in the diesel and The Stig in the gasoline powered V8, it's a race to the finish.

In the news segment, Richard has become the map guy. Jeremy tries a different way to destroy a map that can't be torn. A nice funny segment.

Richard goes back to Iceland for another strange report. He claims that since they couldn't come up with a good solid winner in the convertible race the week before, they sent him back to Iceland to find something cool. The off roading these crazy drivers do is incredible. The short opening montage could have been the report alone. But no, they go on to cars on water. Jeremy introduced the piece with something about James being the devil and Richard trying to be Jesus, walking on water.

The star in the reasonable car is Davina McCall from the British version of Big Brother, and the F1 reporter for the short lived MTV race team. She has some funny stories about her time at F1. The lap is in the wet.

James drives a Bentley in Dubai. In 2005 Bentley was owned by VW, and most of the underpinnings of the car are a VW Pantheon (never made it to the US). James ends up loving the car, and takes it to an amazing top speed on a closed road.

The previous week they set up a challenge for any F1 driver that wants to take on Damon Hill's time in the reasonably priced car. Well, Mark Webber showed up and drove the car around on a very wet track. There are some good shots of the Williams F1 car. The result is surprising.

The last segment, all three boys play in the dirt.

Another excellent episode of Top Gear. This is fun to watch six years after the original air date. The reviews of cars and their predictions of what will succeed is fun to watch. They slam American's and the news about the remake of The Italian Job. The Smart Car convertible that died an ugly death was reviewed extensively - Jeremy gives some candid opinions of the car.

The best segment is Jeremy driving a 1950's Maserati Formula One car. That alone is worth the price of admission. He then backs it up by driving the, then, brand new Maserati street legal race car.

The challenge was to purchase a sports car for less than 1500 pounds. The finale is pretty darn funny, a sort of demolition derby enduro.

Well worth renting if you love early F1 cars. As always, these three are funny together.

Richard opens the show with a Vauxhall on a wet track. On his own he tries to get the car to drift. A Japanese drifting king sits down with him and teaches him some drifting moves. Then the expert drifts the car all over the track. Richard was very impressed. Then three drifters drive around the track and show off some great drifting. The Stig drives the Vauxhall also.

In the news report, Jeremy says that he can't talk about the new Aston Martin, but gives away the secrets anyway by saying he can't talk about them.

A lot of time is spent with James trying to recreate the theme song with car engine noises. He drives a ton of incredibly cool cars. Sadly the piece goes on a lot too long for what he ends up creating.

Timothy Spall (Harry Potter - Peter Pettigrew the rat faced guy) is the star in the reasonably priced car. He's pretty good and funny.

The best driving song ever contest winner is revealed. James presents the "trophy" to the band's drummer. Thank goodness, Meatloaf did not win.

Jeremy drives the best selling vehicle in the world, a Ford F-150 pick up truck. Not exactly the best vehicle in the world to drive around England - it just isn't built for that country with the small roads.

Season 6 closes with a fun segment on bulls versus Lambo. Richard goes to Spain for the running of the bulls. He then drives around in a Lamborghini Murcielago. The two pieces were great side by side.

All in all, not a bad season. Some things were dated; others were right on the money. Overall, these three guys are funny and they love cars.
