I was really hoping to see them review the Agera R. It would have been really interesting to see how that compared to the likes of Pagani Huayra.

But doesn't look like they're getting Agera on the show anytime soon. Sigh.

Downloading right now.

Thanks to the completely stupid internet, it's going to take at least a couple of hours, maybe more

Hopefully, it is worth it. But then, Top Gear rarely isn't.

Watched the First episode. Nothing great, just the usual TG stuff. The Hot Hatches was Ok & so was the race. If you watch carefully you can see that teh Blue Corolla's bumper snaps out (if not break) but they have covered it up.

The new reasonably priced car induction party was hilarious & only good part. Hopefully they will pick up as the season progresses.

Did you see it in TV or online? I thought BBC America is broadcasting it a week late

Just can't wait to watch the episode featuring the best of British, apparently the whole lineup of cars there was worth $308million. Top gear rocks period whether the trio are as good as before or not they are just brilliant. Though if there's just one thing that irritates me it has to be certain bad edits, like the one last season when May was having a race against the Terramax you could see something hanging below the Range-Rover while it was climbing up a slope, and this ruined the whole race making it feel like it was scripted.

The hot hatches was classic Topgear stuff. Wished they had pitched the hot hatches against their old ,80s, version. Would have loved to see the new 208 GTi up against the old 205 GTi.

The new reasonably priced car segment was blah. Admire the short fella's driving though.

James' stamina and endurance was great, for a 50 year old who hates an outdoorsy lifestyle. But a Corolla ? Seriously ?

Just watched episode 2. It is rather nice with some very familiar cars.

The latest episode was one of the worst episodes in quite a while.Seems like they ran out of ideas.What was so "TopGear" about two men racing a bike in an office building?The taxi race was alright but the reviews of the Mono and Berlinetta were pretty bad.

I personally liked this one better than the first episode, Taxi segment and SIARPC were good, the Berlinetta review left a lot to be desired, and where is the Berlinetta lap time?

Episode 2 was so much better than Ep 1!

The BAC Mono test was quite nice, what a beautiful car that is.

Looking forward to next week's show, which is the three supercars test one. I find such some of the best shows of Top Gear.

The new episode big improvement!

-BAC MONO, Really waited a long time for a TG review of this one.
-HM Abassador! Incredibly excited when I saw they put this one in
-Rush is a movie I'm looking forward to so enjoyed this particular guest interview.

I thought the second episode was better than the first one too. But overall, I hate this season so far. In my opinion season 20 has been the worst so far, with the F12 test indicating that Jeremy had indeed grown old.

This season reminds of their India special, just lost and seems like they dont know what they are doing coupled by the fact that they are trying really hard to be something they dont know yet; points to pointlessness.

I hope the next 4 episodes pick up.
