    Anyone else here a fan of this show?
    The season finale was last night and the show just continues to improve.

    I don't like the fat guy with the infant hair do.

    Gearz with Stacey David is a much better car show.

    Im not a big fan, but I do watch it occasionally.

    How far back do you wish to go? When Clarkson was the only presenter of the current crew? Before May joined?

    The BBC one is far superior, IMO.

    All the way back to Pebble Mill!! But I commend your insight, Westwall. Here, have you ever seen a drag race quite like this on Top Gear America?:

    I like both the UK and the US versions of the show. The BBC version is classic and the US version has it's own flavor. Right now the only advantage the US show has it that it is on the History Channel which I get in HD, Unfortunately for the UK version they are on BBC America which on Unverse is not available in HD.
