Can you not watch it on BBC's Iplayer website? I know by default it doesn't allow you to view if IP address falls outside UK but I heard that it is possible to hack that.

I can watch all the latest episodes on the BBC website, although that might be because I'm in the UK now. Maybe it's worth a try for those in India too?

The latest episode is kickass!! One of the funnier episodes of TG in a while. The FCX clarity was also good.

The best part though was shots of Jay Leno's garage!!

What a senseless episode ! Hilarious without a doubt. But it was just zany. EVERYTHING! They all went slightly mad, and did anyone notice Jezza's voice being all deep and rather sickly?

Wonder what they'll rig the V8 upto next episode!

Cant believe Clarkson agreed to take the scooter.his episode was best of this season IMO.Loved the ending where they have to reach that amazing bar in the middle of the sea built on planks.

Top Gear is currently taking a break and should be back in March.

You guys can watch Fifth Gear in the meantime, which starts on the 5th of Jan.

What was so good about the last episode?

I dont get the point of the episode.

It sounded like one of those travel shows that come up on other channels. Sculptures, gifts, type of food, history and for heavens sake a SPA too. It looked like a brochure for Vietnam. Oh only thing they did threw in three 2 wheelers.

And other then a mention of the type of scooter/bikes nothing else. Oh the Taliban bike joke was well.. nonsense.

There was no mention about hopefully what is used in Vietnam, the auto industry there other then showing the one Fiat 500 and how the whole country rides on step throughs.

Conversely the previous season was a proper Top Gear - the winter special.

I absolutely hated the last episode and was wondering whether in their zeal to make the show better they actually forgot the whole point of it in the first place.
