Mark Webber was extremely candid in the episode. He didn't mince words about Seb when asked whether he will miss his team-mate or not. Typical Ausssie!

I second that. Though till date i've never found JC's jabs or humour offensive, this one kinda did feel like a cheap shot for me. Making fun of people's apearance is just not on for me.

But anyways, i personally loved the British film and how all the cars were lined up at the mall. That must've been some sight for Londoners!

Also, the F-type exhaust note was music to the ears.

S21 come soon!!

Apart from the maniacal attention to detail and the way things are put together in the car, its also faster around the track than the 'Track focused' Sesto Elemento. Its also less than half the cost of Sesto Elemento and can be used as a daily driver as well.

In my opinion, Lamborghini is basically charging that high because it can.
My thoughts exactly. I was pleasantly surprised when the Huayra turned out to be faster than feather light, all carbon fiber Sesto Elemento. The Lambo is not even road legal for that matter.

The ads seem to show excerpts from the last series. So, I think they are going to show the latest series.

Axn channel will air season 20 starting on 18th October 2013, each Friday. I can't wait to watch it again! Axn to the rescue after BBC entertainment channel pulled The plug on itself :(

I started a thread for the airing of TopGear in India this morning but it seems to have been disallowed by the mods as there is no sign of it on the forum. I wonder why, any help?

I wonder whether AXN, will censor out some parts of the show. Top Gear and the guys Jezza, May & Hammond have always been politically incorrect. So , whether watching it on TV will be as fun as watching through stream/downloads will be interesting. I say this as most of the American TV dramas & Sitcoms have to face a lot of censorship and some of the subtitles turn out to be unintentionally hilarious!

Now we all know that the original programming time is exactly 60 minutes. Being aired on Axn there will definitely be advertising time of 20mins during the one hour. That creates a dilemma... Will the show go on to 10:30pm or will the programme be chopped and dissected to fit the hour slot + ads..oh I shudder thinking about a 40 mins episode

I've found the answer to my own question, the show will finish at 10pm as there is a programme starring Dwayne the Rock Johnson to start at 10pm right after TG. This leaves the channel to cruelly snip and cut at least 15-20 mins of each episode to allow for ad breaks

oh dear

AXN has started airing Top Gear and I must say it's enjoyable watching the trio on TV once again. By the way, it's Season 20 but great fun nevertheless

They are pulling the same idiocy as BBC did.
They're snipping the show. No news, direct cuts to segments.
Hell, for the first 20 minutes last Friday, you'd have thought JC was the quite one!

There was a lot of excitement in anticipation of its airing. But my joy was no more when the programme was getting snipped every 10 mins and annoying ads just barged in in the middle of dialogues! To be honest, I'm not watching it on tv. I have the entire season on high definition on dvd which I can watch UNEDITED, AD FREE AND WHENEVER I PLEASE!

Snipping is so cruel! I felt awful during the two episodes so far. As I have watched the entire season many times over, I know they are sacrificing the true essence of tg.

Saw few more videos of F-type and was surprised that the exhaust note on those videos were not that loud!

Guess they wanted to make it more exciting than it actually is
