    Yo yo yo,

    We're nearly there - only three weeks to go until the premiere of the long-awaited The Grand Tour. I know many of you, myself included, cannot wait to see the three amigos back doing what they do best. The show is shaping to be an absolute cracker! We get a new special - set in Namibia apparently - we get a slew of new films in exotic locations - think Italy, France, Jordan, Morocco, Barbados, and Portugal - and we get the return of Clarkson, Hammond, and May's classic banter. 

    Not to dampen the mood, but I've come to the realisation, as of late, that dealing with this show will be more challenging than dealing with Top Gear. As the name implies, this is, unfortunately, still the Top Gear wiki. As such, the majority of pages and con…

    We're nearly there

    May 11, 2016 by Mvanterati

    TG UK is almost back. Not only was an extended trailer released earlier today but the Applause Store - used for booking people for the studio segments of the show - finally put up a listing for the new series, all but confirming that the show will make its long-awaited return on the 22nd of May. Check it out here - http://www.applausestore.com/book-top-gear-2016.

    After an incredibly long absence - about a year and a half - TG USA is finally back for some new episodes next week. I can't quite figure out why the show has been off the air for so long... I remember reading somewhere that the guys took time out to let Adam's arm heal but a year and a half seems like a long time to wait. Regardless, TG USA is back and, ironically, is now the only iteration of Top Gear that has remained unchanged over the last year. It looks to be a good series - we know that the show will be kicking off with a two-episode premiere, one of which will be an off-road episode. We can also expect a road trip through Cuba at some point in the series (which should be fascinating given recent developments in US-Cuba relations), …

    New TG UK hosts

    February 12, 2016 by Mvanterati

    So we finally know what the presenting team of Top Gear will look like when the show returns to telly in May. We've got Friends star Matt LeBlanc, /Drive presenter Chris Harris, YouTube car reviewer Rory Reid, F1 commentator Eddie Jordan, and German racing driver Sabine Schmitz. Given that Schmitz is German and a woman, Eddie Jordan is Irish, and Matt LeBlanc is American, it's a fairly drastic change from the Clarkson, Hammond, and May days. It's also obvious that with six presenters - seven if you count Stig - the show is going to have to change its format signficantly. I'd imagine that Evans will be the main host and the other five will join him on adventures at different times during the show. I'd also imagine that all six of them won't …

    So it's been a while since I've updated the wiki with anything meaty because, plainly, nothing much has happened in Top Gear land. TG UK and TG USA both continue to be on hiatus while new series are filmed and production on Clarkson, Hammond, and May's Amazon seems to be trundling along albeit at an infuriatingly slow pace. 

    The internet is still ablaze with rumours on who Chris Evans' co-hosts will be in the new series of TG UK. The most cited rumour that Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz will join him is look the most truthful seeing as Schmitz was recently seen filming in Los Angeles with Evans for the show. 

    Elsewhere, the crew at TG USA has just wrapped up filming a road trip in Cuba. Rutledge, Adam, and Tanner have each uploaded some pho…

    Long time no see everyone,

    The last couple of months have been pretty slow for news in the Top Gear TV show world. We know that Clarkson, Hammond, and May will be on Amazon Prime next year for a new show. We know that Chris Evans will lead a new lineup for a 23rd season of Top Gear. And, for the last couple of months, the future of Top Gear USA has been up in the air.

    We still don't have much news in regards to CH&M's Amazon show. Recently it was revealed that Clarkson's lawyers had filed a trademark for 'Gear Knobs' and 'Speedbird'. The best guess would be the 'Gear Knobs' is the name of their new show - which would be absolutely hilarious if true - and 'Speedbird' is their new Stig-type character. Of course this hasn't been officially anno…

    So after months of waiting the BBC has finally announced Jeremy Clarkson's replacement as lead presenter on Top Gear will be none other than Chris Evans, who's pretty much always been the obvious choice. Despite oddly rulling himself out early on, Evans has confirmed he will take on the role and will attempt to "do everything [he] possibly can to respect what has gone on before". I should hope so. That's pretty much the only thing the new presenters of Top Gear can do if they want to be succesful in the role. Clarkson, Hammond, and May's shoes are too big to fill and the new presenting team needs to be aware of this. All they can do is acknowledge that they aren't Clarkson, Hammond, and May and forge their own unique bond and develop their …

    Well Jeremy's finally gone and crossed the line. It's hard to believe that after all he's done this - a scuffle with a producer who, apparently, wasn't the one who reported it to the BBC - is what's going to trip him up. So no more Top Gear for a while, I guess. What's more worrying than the BBC shunting the series off air suddenly is that they might pull the whole show too. Jeremy, James, and Richard's contracts are set to expire in April, after which they're free to move on from the BBC altogether. It's starting to look more likely than ever that the BBC might finally take the chance to axe the show for good or the presenters might take the chance to finally break free of the BBC. I think what staggers me the most is that they're going t…

    Hi all,

    It's been a while. Well series twenty-two is in full swing now and we're over halfway through this monster of a series. I was wondering how everyone else has found it so far. For me, personally, I have been a little let down up to this point, although, in my mind, some of the best films are yet to come. I had high hopes of episode 2, as I live in Australia, but felt it dragged on a little too long. I really couldn't fault episode 1 other than that they should've spent longer on the Saint Petersburg race. Episode 3 was a bit of a let down too as I didn't find it to be as funny as some of their other creation-films, i.e. the hovervan, the car trains etc. Episode 4 was solid even though it was a 'one-off car show' (and that's not my cu…

    New Deals for TG Trio?

    January 27, 2015 by Mvanterati

    Today the Mirror published an article saying Jezza, Hamster, and Captain Slow would be signing new deals with the Beebs for three more years of Top Gear. Although I'm hesistant to believe that this news is 100% true - seeing as it is the Mirror after all - I am hopeful that there is a slither of truth in this article. The only bummer is that last time the trio signed a three year deal we only got four series (including the one currently airing). It also means - since they're supposed to be signing in April - that it's likely we'll have to wait a year for series 23, if it goes ahead. It would mean, however, that the show would most likely surpass twenty-five series on air, which would be an incredible achievement! Oh well... Let's hope we h…

    Hi everyone,

    As I'm sure you all know Top Gear's livestream happened earlier today and was viewed by TG fans across the world. While it was mostly just a chat about past series and the presenters' experiences while filming them, a few new details were revealed about Series 22.

    We got a first look at some of the films coming up in the series, such as the Saint Petersburg race (episode 1), the Australian road trip (episode 2), the boys in Canada, the cheap SUV challenge, and Hammond's Land Rover tribute (all episode unknown as of present).

    One of the bigger reveals, however, was that of some of the celebrities that will be featured in this series' SIARPC segments: Ed Sheeran (episode 1), Kiefer Sutherland, and Will Smith (both episode unknown a…

    Hi everyone,

    I'm not sure how many people are aware of this because there hasn't really been a formal announcement quite yet but Top Gear UK is back on the 25th of January with the first episode of series 22. They've also just released a trailer which they locked to UK residents only but thankfully someone has kindly uploaded it themselves to YouTube (I have linked it on the main page) - the trailer shows some scenes from the episode that will go to air next. Also, don't forget to check out the "Evening with Top Gear" live stream which is happening within the next twenty four hours. Go to Top Gear's official YouTube channel and look at the livestream countdown to work out when it will start in your hometown.

    Let's hope S22 has been worth the…

    Hi everyone,

    Hope you've all had a good Christmas. I've just finished watching the second part of Top Gear's Patagonia Special and I'm wondering what everybody thought of it? If I'm being honest I liked part 1 better than part 2 if only because the scenery was nicer (I thought, at least) and I found the humour to be a little bit funnier. With that said I definitely enjoyed today's episode. I guess I want to address the big moment of the Special which was the attack on the convoy in Tierra del Fuego. What did you think? Do you think they portrayed the scene fairly? I'd like to say yes but I'm interested to know what you think. Let me know. Looking forward to series 22 next year!

    Patagonia Special Update

    December 11, 2014 by Mvanterati

    Hola amigos,

    I've updated the Patagonia Special wikia page with a dozen or so official photos from the upcoming episode. I've noticed that hardly any feature full shots of Jeremy's ill-fated Porsche... They seem to especially worried about the number plate as it will be, for a while, the one that is shown on the episode. None of the screens I've found show his original H982 FKL plate! I also added some screen grabs from the BBC Christmas trailer (watch it here). Hopefully the Special will get its own trailer on the BBC's YouTube page pretty soon too. Looks to be a good episode!

    Good news everyone! The BBC just unveiled its festive television line-up and guess what was on their scheduling? That's right the now infamous Top Gear special in Argentina, apparently titled the "Patagonia Special". And the good news just keeps on coming! It'll be broadcast in two parts like the Burmese and African Specials before it. I'm genuinely surprised that they're gonna give us two Top Gear specials in one year but hey, I'm not complaining. Maybe this is some form of compensation for a) not giving us a special in 2012 and b) making us wait a whole damn year for series 19 which only had 5 real episodes. Given the media attention on the filming of the special I'd say the "Patagonia Special, Pt. II" will be quite an anticipated televi…

    Well they've gone and done it now haven't they? Top Gear has been attacked by what looks to be a very angry mob of Falkland War veterans in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. The crew fled to Chile but were forced to abandon their vehicles at the side of the road despite a police escort. Jeremy, James, and Richard fled to Buenos Aires before the violence erupted. The run-in resulted in filming of the Argentina Special being prematurely suspended. They had planned to film a car-football match with some local Argentinians as the finale of the episode. Guess that won't be happening now... It'll be interesting to see how they incorporate this event in the Argentina episode especially since the presenters left before the rock-throwing…

    Hi Guys,

    Top Gear USA is returning soon for the series 5. It's been a long time since we had new episodes but now we don't have to wait much longer. It's back on the 3rd of June! Hopefully this means we'll have both series 22 of Top Gear and series 5 of Top Gear UK airing at the same time. History has said: "The new episodes of TOP GEAR will take viewers on a wild ride from the backcountry of Arizona into the Grand Canyon, through the Appalachian Trail and even to the Autobahn in Germany for the ultimate high-speed road trip. Adam, Tanner and Rutledge never fail to stand up to every limit, no matter where they are in the world. The guys do everything from testing extreme ways to plow through snow, drag race in muscle cars at the Gatornation…

    What a disapointment!

    April 1, 2014 by Jerem416

    Hello all top gear's fans! I'm Jeremy from Belgium. As you know in Belgium we speak french so we have all the episodes and even the seasons delayed. However, I grew with top gear and I always been a fan. As the season 20 is only diffused now in my country, I started watching it. It was too slow so I turned to the internet to watch all episodes and then I saw that there was a new season. It's in english, but it doesnt matter like I can understand english. The problem is.. that i've already saw all the episodes as every one here. I wasn't aware that there was a new season and also that there were only few episodes. So sad! Will there be a new season and when? Damn I'm really want to keep watching them, they are so funny and I like what they …

    Hi everyone,

    I've only just now watched the series 21 final, the second part of the Burma Special, so I haven't posted anything over the last little while. Anyhow, how did everyone enjoy the twenty first series of Top Gear? The boys are certainly getting tired but, in my opinion, despite this series 21 was pretty damn good. The Burma Special was, on the whole, incredible. Like Jeremy said on twitter I found part 2 to be much better than part 1 of the Burma Special. I'm not sure why to be honest but I just felt a little underwhelmed by part 1 but thankfully part 2 was as awesome as I'd hoped. Other series highlights for me were the Ukraine road trip (especially the Chernobyl bit), the test of the Zenvo, and the eighties hot hatches test. Wha…

    Hi everyone,

    It's the day before the series 21 finale of Top Gear, sadly, but I've only realized now not to post for the last two episodes. So... what did you guys think of episode 5 and the first part of Top Gear's Burma Special. For me personally, the Burma Special, thus far, has easily been the highlight of the series. It sort of feels like the whole series has been leading up to this special and it's been brilliant so far. I don't want to spoil it in case someone accidentally reads this (if this is you don't read the Burma Special page on this wiki - it will be updated soon with the plot overview).

In fact, I reckon the latest episodes are better than the first two! It's sad that we've only got another two episodes to come although they do look pretty good! If someone wants to help me create pages and content from the latest series that would be much appreciated. See you guys next week.

    Just wanted to know what everybody thought of the first episode of the latest series of Top Gear. I can't believe they're already at number 20!

    Episode list table layouts

    I'm trying to figure out a better table layout for the Episode list page. The current layout (copied directly from Wikipedia) doesn't work well with Wikia's fixed width and makes the tables look messy and crammed.

    I created a couple of sample layouts which I think would make the page look a little better, but I'd like for the community to decide which one (if any), would do the best job. If you'd like to help, check out the layouts and let me know which one looks the best. Thanks :)
