Top Gear!
Verified purchase
Top Gear is the reason I subscribed to Amazon Prime. This is my 3rd time watching all 22 seasons all the way through. Season 5 did seem so old 4 years ago but now it's quaintly dated.

Grand Tour is good too but like a reunion tour

Funny, entertaining

Not much different from other seasons. Funny, entertaining, not especially accurate in rating cars but they do not profess to be. Bottom line, I like it.

Cars + British Comedy = Highly Entertaining
Verified purchase
Catching up on this show. Loving it! These guys obviously are car enthusiasts. I'm partial to European cars also. The British comedy slant makes for icing on the cake.
