    Or when/if they don't expand globally fast enough it will shoot to the top of the most pirated list.

    I for one am really excited that my favorite car show hosts will be back on the tube soon. I can only cross my fingers and hope that they take full advantage of the freedom being on Amazon Prime should give them in terms of not having to censor their language.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what they do. TG: USA is terrible at best...but I still watch in hopes that I'll be marginally entertained.

    First episode is available. The intro was very interesting, but once the episode really starts, it's vintage Top Gear.

    Saw it show up 4K HDR version last night on Amazon. I wanted to watch but jetlag and a 5am wakeup yesterday took over.

    Plan to watch this weekend

    Canada doesn't get video with Amazon Prime...but apparently Clarkson announced that it is coming in December so maybe I'll sign up then.

    Watched about half of it. Lots of subtle digs at the BBC version but still great Top Gear.

    The opening sequence was brilliant on so many levels. I loved that there was a pirate ship as an homage to how they got to where they are. I thought the celebrity component was a low point but over all it's fantastic to have the boys back. The last few years of TG were getting stale so this mild reboot is welcomed.

    Loved it, the celebrity part was kinda low as was maybe deciding who had the best air force, but over a great show.:2tu:
