Just like Richard Hammond's Top Gear Uncovered, Clarkson's Duel is a DVD! The torrents are available everywhere!

I must add that Duel was better than Uncovered IMO.

Just finished watching 14x05.

Most boring episode EVER.

Synopsis : Noble M600, Jenson Button, Some museum piece END.

I have to agree, the stunts are becoming predictable now. A little surprised to see Noble faster than Veyron on TG lap Rest all was boring.
I actually dozed off in the middle of the episode, now thats not happened EVER. And I have watched all episodes of TG, some multiple times

Next one should be interesting.
14x06 : TG in Bolivia, South America.
hope this rivals the Africa, America, Vietnam and Polar special, all were EXCELLENT.

Now this is scary! I mean, I thought that the first episode of the current season was lackadaisical (except the final section) and the other three episodes were ok. But I have to agree, the format is becoming more or less redundant!

My favourite part so far in the current season was the electric car testing and the crash tests! And the hill climb with 33 degree is one for the books... The expression on James may's face as he comes in the G-Wiz is amazing!

Season 14 Episode 5 : Pretty ordinary, would be a 2.5/5 from me.

Waiting for next week's South American drive special, which hopefully is much better (and possibly the season finale too!).

The episode is indeed a little boring with almost no humor at all! But i like the M600. It's a terrific car with an outrageous price tag. But then it might even scare Enzo drivers!
I particularly like the 'Missile launch' button for switching off the traction control!

Good reviews and ratings for the episode 6, the Bolivia episode.

i hope this does not turn out to be a bandwidth waste.

Ah come on guys, don't be so hard on them! Yes it lacked that lusture you normally associate with TG but still, I think the Noble M600 feature was fantastic! The Art Exhibition bit was a little funny and it was nice to see Jenson thrash the Liana around the track!

Just finished watching episode 6 and boy oh boy, what an episode. The cars featured are the Toyota Landcruiser (Series 40), Range Rover Classic and the Suzuki SJ (Gypsy).

The journey starts in the middle of the Amazon forest, passes through Bolivia and ends at a beach in Chile. Also in between they show some alternative uses of certain stuffs you get at your local medshop. That was just the outline, but you guys got to watch the episode to see how its done.

Its one of the most toughest of the Topgear adventures so far and IMO this is the best.Its an episode worth every kb of your download.

Episode 5 was an utter disappointment. Hope the sixth one is better!

I just watched the top gear season 14 episode 6. This is one of the best challenge in top gear. Just awesome.
After the dreary episodes in this season, it was a welcome change for all top gear fans.

Watching the Episode 6. Apart from the Rain Forest, La Paz and the Andes reminded me of my drive to Ladakh and various high mountain passes!

Amazing!

Oh Btw the James May does call the Jimny - The Mount Goat
