@jai-uno-t - so how do they position the audience in the studio - is it the prettiest women in front and do they just randomly ask questions to specific audience or is it planned. Were you up front and did they by chance ask you about where a car goes on the cool wall :-)

@nitinralli,

go to finalgear.com/shows/topgear/13 and you will get a link that takes you to mininova. donwload the torrent file from there, which you need to use with any torrent client.

S13E3 was ok, do those dogs belong to their respective owners?

edit: congrats, jai uno t !!!! how long is the actual news section ?

basically the stage (where there have the seating for interviews and the news) is in the middle, so a bit of a scrum to get round it, and yes there is a bit of a thing to get the pretty ladies round in camera shot. we decided not to have a go, but instead positioned ourselves behind two cars so we'd be in that shot for a bit. no coll wall segment this week, actually i can't remember the last time they did a cool wall!

Thumbs down However,I'm disappointed!!

As soon as season 13 began and episode #1 was out, I had it downloaded onto my drive and watched it with high expectations, which Top Gear thoroughly lived up to.

Then came episode#2, which was a total waste of time IMHO.

Still I downloaded episode#3 thinking that things might straighten up a bit. But except the Ken Block super-amazing-driving-drifting thing, the rest of the episode was .

Now, why would someone even attempt to take a full-size adult dog out for a spin in a hatchback??

Also, if you're reviewing a supercar just to point out all the flaws in it, why not just print in down in the magazine and filling up that part of the program with something that's exciting instead?!?

Got it!! Took about 19 mins to download. Can't wait to hook it up to the HDTV and watch it tonight. Monday evenings are always one of the high points of my week.

13X04 - Good Episode. Loved the Focus vs Megane. Panamera part was good too. I did feel bad for the EVO in the end!

Lovely episode! Better than the previous one by a huge margin! Felt really bad for the Evo. Lovely car ruined by the dealings of it's owner. Tragic!

Really didn't like 13x4. Episode lacked the panache that previous ones did. Racing a car against a letter?? Come on.

Previous challenges were great... the 612 Scaglietti race to Verbier, the Mclaren SLR race to Oslo, the DB9 race to Monte Carlo, the Nissan GTR race across Japan, the Veyron race against May's place across Europe.
These were epic challenges... the one in this episode was anything but.

Focus RS v/s Megane was ok.... but overall I was quite underwhelmed by this episode.

I feel the episode with "cars for 17-yr-olds" was the best in series 13.
Rest all episodes were OKish.
