With yet another award added to its trophy cabinet (Broadcast Awards Best International Programme Sales, 2010), the top-rated Top Gear returns with its three kids-at-heart - Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May - plus the Stig, at the helm. There's a look at three wheeled cars, James drives a Toyota pick-up up an active volcano in Iceland and The Stig rips up the track in the new Bentley Continental Supersports. Plus, Richard gives the old Chevrolet Lacetti a dignified send off before he and Clarkson host a star-studded tea party to welcome in a shiny new Reasonably Priced Car. Stars taking a turn round the track in this series include ex Labour spin doctor Alistair Campbell, Harry Potter star Rupert Grint and F1 ace Rubens Barrichello. Presenter; Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

I started watching around the same time as the incident with Jeremy, and while I agree that he should be fire, I do not think I will continue watching without this trio.
For what it's worth Season 15 might be my favorite. The final episode can really hit you. Being from Michigan and seeing the car industry there crumble mad this particular episode hit close to home.
If you buy it to stream, or if you buy the DVDs be ready to enjoy some television that was made to be fun.
Of course, the legality of downloading the shows online is disputable and although it has been fine for years, I decided that I would show my support for the show by buying at least a few seasons after seeing they were available on Amazon. I have received both seasons 14 and 15, and season 16 is pre-ordered.
Compared to the downloaded versions, the Blu-ray copies are overall superior. Aside from usual annoyances like the FBI warning and previews for other shows that show up on all disc-based movies, most of the music played throughout the different segments has been replaced by very generic (royalty free) loops; disappointing but fully expected and understandable, due to copyright restrictions from the record companies. Picture and sound quality is fantastic, especially compared to TV rips that are sometimes less than perfect.
In short, I'd recommend these to any Top Gear fan and perhaps as a way to lure in others who have never seen this fantastic program.
So S15E05 has Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise and Clarkson going all fanboy. That's part of the fun. But BBC America cut the last 15 minutes which was a tribute to Aryton Senna. Why cut that?
