I will preface this by saying that I'm an American, and Top Gear UK is one of my favorite programs.
- I've see some of the US series, and why bother? It's not worth watching.
- This is probably the most re-watched series I have, up there with Arrested Development, this is great time and time again
As for this season, I have to say There are 2 really great episodes -
1) ep 3 - filming the car chase scenes, hilarious really sticking to the producers
2) The India special - A pretty special episode, where somehow Jeremy / Richard / James had sent a letter about doing a trade mission to India to David Cameron's cabinet. Apparently the government did read the letter and didn't find their propositions to be suitable. To get a clip of David Cameron's comments on the proposed missions, they hung out outside of some building waiting for him, and were immediately recognized, with David saying 'you handle the cars, we'll handle the diplomacy' and of course they go to India anyway on their 'trade mission.' This is really worth watching nomatter what country you are from. Hilarious how they anger the Indian big wigs, probably landing them in hot water with the BBC / UK gov.
