I was super shocked last night to be flipping through the channels and come across top gear on the discovery Science Channel. It was the Exige/Apache episode

Just saw the latest addition (Feb 11 2007). You are going to hate it. The fearsome threesome travel to Florida and each buys a car for under $1000 and drive to St Louis. Usual irreverance, including getting stoned by some rednecks, cooking roadkill and and and. Oh yes and the Fat Stig!

85% done. My dl speeds are jumping all over the place - between 75 and 250 kb/s. How many connections are you allowing?

I loved it. "Variety is the spice of life." There are only so many supercars, after all.

I think it probably would have been better to use it in the same was as the cross Europe races, or the challanges from last season. That beinn said, I thought it was hilarious.

Top Gear attacked by Rednecks

This is funny and sad at the same time.

You have to know that they were hoping for that exact reaction just so they could continue to ridicule everything American. There are the equivalent people in all countries.

It's really pathetic how some people just can't shake their heads and laugh.

didn't find it the least bit amusing, kind of thought Clarkson, et. al. were classier than that. My bad.

"I've started to believe that in certain parts of America now, people have begun to mate with vegatables."

I actually sort of agree with them on this perception, and I'm a Texan!

I mean look at me - I can't even spell vegatibles. I'm a 37 year old man who has no idea how to spell vegtibals, and no inclination to look it up either.
