Top Gear, Series 11Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Top Gear's unique approach to automobile entertainment has already seen the popular BBC program tackle burning issues such as "Can you build your own amphibious car?," "Can you buy an old supercar for less than the price of a small hatchback?," and "Can a stretch limousine jump over a wedding?" The answers, as it turns out, are "only if you want to get wet," "only if you want to break down then crash," and "sort of, but don’t park any mobile homes behind the reception tent." Top Gear found this out so you didn’t have to. Silly and opinionated, Top Gear is full of big ideas that never quite work properly or, at the very least, catch fire a bit before they do. Now Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond — oh, and barely-tame racing driver "The Stig" — return with and another batch of tire-smoking, lap-record-breaking, ambitious-but-nonsense car stuff.

|2||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 2||Jeremy tests the new Mitsubishi Evo X against the new Subaru Impreza WRX STi on the Top Gear track; Richard races the new Audi estate against two skiers in the Alps and Jeremy road-tests the new Mercedes CLK Black (“Imagine drinking a pint of hemlock, setting yourself on fire and then jumping out of a plane when it’s directly overhead a combine harvester… That’s what the Black feels like. Exciting beyond words. … I’m not sure that anyone’s life is quite complete unless they have one”). Actors Peter Firth and Rupert Penry-Jones (famous for playing spies in the BBC drama series Spooks) are the “Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car.”||55:21||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|3||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 3||Jeremy tests the new Brooklands Bentley Super Coupé on the Top Gear test track. The Producers set the Presenters a challenge: each is to buy an old Alpha Romeo for £1000 or less and put them through a series of feared Top Gear tests, including a track day, featuring them in calendars and showing them at a concourse day where the motto is “a passion for perfection.” Actor-comedians Rob Brydon and James Corden (currently enjoying much success in the BBC’s multi-award-winning Gavin & Stacey) are the “Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car.”||58:16||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|4||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 4||In a race across Japan, Jeremy Clarkson tries to prove that the technical tour de force that is the Nissan GT-R is faster than Richard Hammond and James May traveling on the ultra-efficient Japanese public transport, including the 200 mph Shinkansen Bullet Train. Jeremy also tests the beautiful new Alpha Romeo 8C on the Top Gear track. UK newsreaders Fiona Bruce and Kate Silverton are the “Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car.”||1:00:51||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|5||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 5||Jeremy and James show off and compare their Rolls Royce Corniche and the dictator-chic Mercedes “Grosser” – ageing but massive luxury limos they bought for the price of a new Ford Mondeo. The Nissan GT-R wondercar gives Jeremy a thorough working over around Japan’s legendary Fuji circuit, and entrepreneurs Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis venture out from the Dragons’ Den to become the “Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car.”||1:00:46||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|6||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 6||Jeremy, Richard and James take on three German motoring rivals (including Nurburgring legend Sabine Schmidt) and face their toughest challenge yet – not mentioning the war. James chauffeurs some exceedingly large sumo wrestlers in some exceeding strange Japanese cars, and Richard attacks the test track in Mazda’s remarkable Furai concept car.||58:24||$1.99||View in iTunes|

Yes, Yes, Yes! Jezza, Captain Slow, and Hamster!
Well it's about bloody time! I've been waiting for the new episodes to come on here in america! I love this show! I thought I would never get into cars but now I have, thanks to these guys. I stumbled on them by accident, while I was flipping the channed, feeling so bored until I saw a Ferarri F430. Then that's how it all started. The fact is that they keep true to the nature of the show, it's about cars and everything they do is about cars. With some fun of course, such as the challenges. It keeps you entertained. The boys themselves are interesting! They are all different in their own unique ways, which makes the show even better. Take for instance, Jeremy Clarkson, he's got a mouth that just fires off, without thinking! But it necessary because he just tells it like it is! Bold and truthful as he can be, he explains the pros and cons of cars and for just about anything. That's why he is amazingly loved and hated. Richard Hammond, has a spirit of a true racer! Competative and daring, he strives to do the unthinkable. Not only is he the good looking guy (so they say) he sure knows his knowledge on cars. He's sense of humor with those big eyes certainly makes him likable. But nothing compares when this guy gets fired up when he's out for a race. The man is pretty much the jack of all trades. James May, I love this guy! To me, he's like an encyclopedia of knowlege! (Notice how I didn't say Wikipedia?) That man has a vast knowledge of the strangest and interesting things that I couldn't even phathom. It's as if he lives in the past, but still keeps up with the future. Which isn't a bad thing to me, it just works out all the same! He may not be the fastest on the track, he knows how to be considerate. He's the mellow out of the two, but he can surprise you when you least expect it. You can't help but love him. I've learned that just because a car is worth a lot, doesn't mean it's worth your money. There's a lot of things to consider about a car and the boys teach you just that. So if you plan on buying a certain car that the boys had driven, you better make sure they said something good about it. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Can't wait for more episodes.
This is the best show on TV and that Richard Hammond is secretly a mystical dwarf. All we know is, it's called TOP GEAR!
Best Automotive Show on Television
Top Gear is without a doubt one of the best Automotive shows on english language television. All episodes are produced with care, creativity and lots of humor with a superb cast, great locations and amazing camera and editing work. Beware that while the show does cover consumer automobiles, there is a heavy focus on super and exotic cars.
