Well tomorrow is episode 2 and it appears to include a cheap car challenge where they are challenged to find a sports saloon for under 5k quid. As well there are two Porsche driven the Porsche 911 Sport Classic and Boxster Spyder. I can't wait!

Episode 2 was definitely better than 1, but it seems there should be a part 7 to that Al .. it ends with James doing a jig, no conclusion or end speech by Jeremy.

You were right FUBAR, there is a whopping 51 seconds left of the show that I forgot to post. Sorry to all of you for that and make sure you watch at least the second show from James May's Toy Stories which should be posted by the time you read this.

last nights ep was awesome! Best yet! I really like the porsche and imo, is not that ugly. I'm sure that gm will be thrilled that they compared the ss to the amg. IMO not in the same class. I can't believe Grint is old enough to drive either.

what did you guys think?

Yeah, I was very confused when they brought out the Merc vs the Camaro - I mean, how can you even classify a Mercedes as a "Muscle Car."

I also don't think the Porsche was that bad looking, bit I do like that Maserati - the sound of it in the tunnel was :shock: 8)

Here is a stream that I could find and not be required to enter surveys and all that stupid stuff http://sa-se.com/top-gear-season-15-episode-3.html

I agree it is the best of the season so far, but

if that really is true, I must ask Do you have working eyes??????? The Porsche is more hideous than people swimming in a pool full of sick. And the Camero ?review? was very uninspiring and short...I wonder though how Parkmad is going to take it?

i enjoyed the show. however, the Senna film was too much and it took away from the fun films the boys do. I thought they really missed a chance to build upon the momentum from the rv film.
i thought cruise and diaz were fun.
on another note...

stig bday ecards!

And the episode itself:
Slow to low, but decent quality

This is what the quality should be like

Well, finally got a chance to catch up .. definitely had to power through episode 1, but since then, back to the old awesome formula ! Maybe it is because I am not a Formula 1 fan, I could have done without the long tribute to Cenna (spelling ?) but, it was still a good show! The Caravan episode is the best of the new season to date. Would have been nice to see some of the American car that took the top speed title away from the old Bugatti Veyron, until the new Veyron blew it out of the water.

Here is a high quality version of the last episode of the series and the 5th episode in the series (the last one), but be warned they take a long time to finish.

Man, what a bummer .. got all excited to see a Triumph or Jag based on the cars they were standing in front of when introducing the segment .. but at least they got em all in by the end.

I want that new Ferrari ....

Here is a much better link ..
