They're back! Top gear is back! Excellent first episode in what looks to be a great season. SIARPC was a bit boring, but the rest of the show was brilliant! The final piece on the track was completely edge-of-the-seat action!

From the season preview, it looks like the old Topgear is back. Looking forward to the 18th season.

Edit:

Brilliant first episode
After the lifeless India Special, this was much needed to get back in the game.

The boys are back with a very nice episode.

Oh! I cannot get enough of the glorious sound made by the Aventador in the tunnel.

Loved the episode, especially the introduction part. Very hilarious. I wish they had done more on the road-trip though, somehow the charisma of the usual TG road trip (like the one with GT40, F430 & Zonda) seemed to be missing, may be because this was long.

Watched the episode, the boys are back and how! Clarkson was again at his best with his humour. Regarding the episode, simply loved the Aventador and the race in the circuit at the end. Did not expect the Nobel giving such a tough competition to the others. Can't wait for the 2nd episode featuring more drool stuff from the Merc stable!

I spotted atleast 2 Puntos & an Aveo sedan. The Aventador was literally Fire Breathing. SIARPC was so-so . I liked the Thunderbird-Vette design, but that's all that there was to it.

I somehow feel that most of the breakdowns are staged (not this one IMO), just so that any two of them get some 'alone' time with each other. It is just so apparent in this episode that they wanted to showcase MP4-12C v/s an Aventador & not a Noble M600.

Waiting for the track spec Merc as shown on the montage.

Watched it last night. Another good episode.

Matt LeBlanc gives us a nice surprise and the Chinese stig with the Chinese cars was nice to watch too.

Last night's episode was a lot of fun. Specially liked the "Crash Test" on Chinese cars & their Un"tamed" racing driver
