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.
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.
Can you imagine if all the tv you watched in the last year were priced per episode? Your kids would hate you, you'd loose your house, divorce, homelessness, starvation, etc.
What is this trickery? And where's my drone delivery service!
