TOP GEAR 18

Running Time: 508 minutes
What’s Going On?
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May live out every car lover’s dream on TOP GEAR, showing off some of the fastest, sexiest, and sometimes most broken down vehicles on earth. It’s a fun show that features celebrity guests, races, and more often than not, explosions.
Who’s In It:
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are the hosts of Top Gear, and this season, there are guest appearances from Ryan Reynolds, Michael Fassbender and Matt Smith, among others.
If You Like…:
Cars, driving fast, seeing things blow up, hilarity or seeing hosts accost their audiences, then check this out.
There’s an episode from the subpar US edition of TOP GEAR, Jeremy Clarkson observing fans, which is really him making fun of them, and Behind the Scenes with Celebrity Laps including Michael Fassbender driving a McClaren (because he’s not sexy enough), Richard Hammond driving a NASCAR racer and Richard and James May in a classic Bentley.
The Technical Gist
Colors are sharp and bright and everything’s crystal clear. Shame this release isn’t being released in the States on blu-ray. It would have really shone.
Although it’s a bit of a bummer there’s no blu-ray release for this, it’s a great show for lovers of cars and things that are awesome. Though this is the 18th season of the show, it’s a perfect way to get into the wild and crazy world of TOP GEAR. QUEUE IT.
