Top gear postponed, no final decision yet as of 3/16/2015
Verified purchase
The last 3 episodes of season 22 have been POSTPONED (Mar 16, 2015). No definite decision yet from the BBC as they are investigating the incident. Anyone who wants to know what's going on Google Jeremy Clarkson etc. Although I would love the last 3 episodes to be completed, they may never be. This will cost the BBC big as season 22 was promised to many outlets. However, all this is beyond Amazon's control. We all have to wait to see what the final outcome of the "fracas" investigation is. Keep in mind the contracts for Clarkson, Hammond and May expire something like April 1st. They may opt not to renew. The BBC certainly has not been handling the show well management-wise and the cast may be sick of it. If it's no fun anymore, it would be hard to keep the show at the stellar quality it has been. They've made a great show for 12 years, enjoyed around the world, and more popular than any other TV show. It would be a shame to see it end over politics and poor management with everyone involved feeling badly. Although Clarkson clearly lost his temper big time, I can't help but feel he had been goaded to that point by poor management.

Final Clarkson Season
Verified purchase
I've been a fan of Top Gear for quite a few years. This, being the final season with Clarkson, May & Hammond (the best line up) made it a must have for me. Sad to see it end, but The Grand Tour is pretty good also. The price for Top Gear seasons seems to fluctuate, so check back periodically.

One of the best seasons in years
Verified purchase
Some seasons are of course better than others, and this is one of the best, with 2-part specials and some extra good episodes

- The 2 part special through Patagonia was really one of the best specials. The guys chose sportscars to drive through the forbidding terrain of Pataganoia! One of the all time great specials, and a 2-parter at that. Really great cinematography as well by the camera team.

- The "Homemade ambulance challenge" has to also be up there as one of the most funny that I watch and re-watch,and got my dad rolling laughing, which I don't get much out of him on TV shows

- Lastly, The guys rescue Hammond who is dropped in freezing Canada - they do so in 4x4's and take their sweet time. First episode I've seen in awhile as well for a test of American 4x4s

Entertaining And Informative - Deserves 10+ Stars Series
Verified purchase
Oh yes, this is the absolute best show to watch when needing laughs. My boys were the ones to turn me onto this, and I have spent too many extra hours not being able to get up from watching as the relationship between these three make the show. It is not possible to watch this show and not be laughing out loud at some of the antics.

I suppose if you were in the market for one of the expensive cars on the market, part of this show might be helpful in getting your choice narrowed down - especially when The Stig takes the cars for his trip around the course.

If you haven't seen any of these shows, you are missing some wonderful entertainment. I can't give Top Gear enough stars for the enjoyment that I have received from this series but would give it a 10+ if possible.

If this show were a food, it would be my dessert.
Verified purchase
If this show were a food, it would be my dessert. This show just plain makes me feel good. I always know that I'll enjoy myself and be entertained by the trio. They intentionally fly in the face of whatever setting they are in, and to me that just makes things all the funnier. Just treat the show as it was intended (especially by Clarkson) as a comedy show, and don't look back. You get to see the latest in transportation related tech, and a lot of far off places you might never go to yourself.

The specials are where it's really at, but there a lot of wildly entertaining segments in between as well. So far, Season 22 is shaping up to be beyond excellent.

The REAL Top Gear
Verified purchase
This is the crew that made the show special. Admittedly by season 22 the adventures had become a bit over the top, but the interaction of this trio and the amazing cars they showcase simply cannot be beat.

Best Show Ever

This show is so great I watch it over and over again. That's why I bought the season. At the time, Prime didn't have this show.
