Not sure where you are based, but you can try accessing the programmes on BBC's iPlayer : BBC iPlayer - iPlayer TV Home

I believe you need to check the terms of use if you are planning to view the programmes outside the UK.

I missed the show last night on BBC entertainment and so watched it on streetfire.net. Yes they were slightly racist and hypocritical but I really enjoyed watching the episode. Even the nascar part was nicely presented. I just wished they had done something similar in their India special. Probably just using the Indian cars for all their tasks would have made a huge difference. All in all Top Gear is back with a BANG!!!

Now we all had a hearty laugh at how they typecasted China (copycats). Because this is how China really is (Been there seen that). So there was absolutely nothing wrong with how India was portrayed. I don't know which bit of it was untrue. India Special was boring? Yes. But untrue ? Not.

Episode 3 is a bummer. After a cracker of a start to the season, this one was plain boring.

Episode 3 : The Star is a reasonably priced car - They show a clip from a movie he is promoting...

I saw 2 Indica Vistas in that film!! One silver and one greenish!!

I loved the 'News' and May' power test. SIARPC was funny as well. The Sweeney shooting dragged a bit.

The Ferrari FF is coming.

They are airing Season 18 on BBC Entertainment on Wednesday, 11 PM.

I will have to see if they will be showing the latest episode or is there a lag between the UK and Indian airings.

Watched Episode 3, was pretty funny, I really liked the SIARPC & was in splits during the interview. Ryan Reynolds was pretty cool.

Overall nice episode, yeah the stunts part was a slightly boring in between.

Can you please not post this? I don't know if its just me but I don't like knowing the details before the episode. Just makes it that much more exciting for me. Am I the only one?

I agree. The third episode was plain boring. Seems like they are running out of ideas.

This 3rd episode really sucked. The sweeny shooting went on and on and without any fireworks. No real car test done (well it is never real in any case unless it is on Team bhp). Ryan Reynolds was pretty funny and sure has had an eventful life.
