Currently, they are showing S18 Episode 2 on BBC Entertainment. So, there is a lag of 1 1/2 weeks for the show to come in India.

Episode three was a bit boring. The James segment was good. But everything else was utterly boring.
The season got off to a great start, with the nice Italian supercar roadtrip and even the chinese segment in episode 2 was great.
These guys know how to make nice "car" segments, its when they try to veer off into other areas that things become sad.

E4: 5-4.7-2.3-1 Go!

Nice episode. The FF review was classic TG. And I enjoyed the SIARPC thoroughly.

JC even pull their own leg for the poor India special.

I assure you, when you watch the E4 you'll get what I meant.

I don't want to spoil the fun for others who haven't watched it yet. Sorry for that.

Here is FF btw.

Loved the FF and the engine note of the Continental. Epic photography too! Michael Fassbender was a joy!

Even I thought so! Not sure though. But the episode was much better than the previous one. Loved the FF and Bentley shoot out. Off-roading in wheel chairs was good too.

Thanks for the FF link. But what I really want to know is when this episode will be screened in India. I know TG is aired every weekday at 11 pm, but I found some of them to be quite dated.
