The new season seems to quite exciting, but guess the team is getting into the doldrums with the theme of the stories being quite the same - cars/challenges and Jezza's wit.

The absence of the new Stig is telling and so is the lack of power lap times. As an auto enthusiast the Stigs role in the series was a personal highlight, as he was the only objective quotient in the series, the rest being only of entertainment and eye candy value (very highly regarded also).

Hope the new Stig comes out of the '' !!

Awesome episode but really missed the stig. They should somehow get him back on the show or atleast get one of his cousins to do it.

Both Wikipedia and Finalgear has listed the episode as S15E07 and the next episode seems to be the first Episode of Season 16.

First things first, it is STILL season 15. And not 16.

But i loved the episode. the boys are back and they are so much more fun to watch compared to season 14.

hehe... There were actually reports/rumours of Tiff being the new Stig! So TopGear was just having some fun there

Its weird that this is classified as Season 15 as when the Episode starts, Jezza talks about what is lined up in the next few weeks, so its sort or wonky. But there are clips of TG-UK vs TG-Aus in there too, so i think something somewhere has gone haywire. ....... Typical TopGear I say!!


Also, As an exclusive to teamBHP, il be posting my report on TopGear LIVE soon. Im really sorry I havent had time to do so.

The new episode, is just fantastic! I don't care if it's called the 7th episode of the 15th Season or the 1st episode of the 16th Season. Although I'd like to believe that it's the latter, because Clarkson introduces a trailer that showcases Top Gear in the coming weeks.

And The Stig has left. And coincidentally, Ben Collins has joined Fifth Gear, as Nitrous has pointed out. That's more than a hint, right there

Oh and the bacon air-freshener could actually cure vegetarianism!

Hey guyus, is it available on Netflix? Else how do I get to watch it--I am currently in the US.

BTW, i did get to see Top Gear America on TV and must say it pales in comparision to the UK ones.

Top gear america is rubbish.. Simple as that. I dont know if you can access it from the US, but search for it on Video Search Engine - Blinkx for full streaming of the episodes.

Thank you for the heads-up Cyrus. It's 56% done and I'm just watching the download-progress-bar every minute.

Top gear cinematography keeps getting better & better. Three wise men is probably the best Top gear episode till date. The 720p HD quality is the icing on the cake.
