One of the stunningly different episode i have ever seen coming out from Top Gear.

Mind blowing is the word.

FANTASTIC
AWESOME
TG SEASON 15 X 05 was truely the best episode this season.

First came the VW Tuareg Dakar rally spec

Then the most hilarious news item i have heard for some time on TG

Then "The Bugatti Veyron Supersport", my god it was fast. (still feel the cinematography of the first veyron round the same track few seasons back was better).

Then Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. The Americans coming 1 & 2 respectively on the lap board in a right hand driven manual gear box car on a British track

and then there was the icing on the cake, a film on Senna, It brought tears to my eyes.

amazing episode. TG is back with a bang!!!
cheers!!

Waiting for it.

What an episode, what a rocking episode.

First The Superb TG Cinematography with the Touareg then comes the Superb Bugatti SS if this wasn't enough they had to show the mid engined Porche

The SIARPC was also good.

Now I have to admit that I am not much of a F1 guy but the last film was simply superb, I was touched.

A must watch episode for sure.

Senna bit was brilliant, total respect at the end from Top Gear, waiting for the movie on Senna. I wish Top Gear would make a special 1 hr episode on Senna itself. Real respect for senna, god of F1.

Cant imagine that he drove monaco F1 with one hand on the steering. Amazing, tears in my eyes.

S15E05. The best topgear episode of all times(for me). Every bit of it was brilliant.
R.I.P Senna.

Episode 5 was one of the best i've seen.
i'm looking forward to episode 6, which according to Wikipedia will be featuring "old British roadsters from Jensen Healey, Lotus and TVR.",

S15E05 left me all watery eyed, especially after the Senna tribute. Arguably the best episode ever. If there is one episode that could summarize the show in a nutshell, this could probably be it! Take a bow!

Episode 5 was amazing! Agree with everything which was said above for it.

I think they should do a full length feature on Senna sometime. Clarkson is a wonderful documentary presenter (check out some of his Inventions that changed the world series).

Agreed with all the posts about episode 5, Finest Top Gear episode so far.
Tribute to Ayrton Senna was superb.

The best TG episode I've seen in a long time. Loved each segment of it. The Touareg, the Bugatti and for that matter even Cruise and Diaz. But nothing beat the Senna film. Fantastic compilation and to see his old Mclaren run again was a treat. I can imagine the joy for Lewis.

F1 would be a different game had he been around today. Looking forward to the next episode.

I had thought this season would have only 6 episodes, but according to Wiki [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Top_Gear_episodes#Series_Fifteen]
there will be 7 episodes. And I can't wait for next week. The long awaited shootout between the 458 Italia and the Merc SLS
