Top Gear is one of the most watched shows in the World. I am not exaggerating, the numbers are not lying. But if you don't believe me, just watch a few episodes. If you are a fan of Top Gear UK, I don't think that there is a reason for you to read this article. You are long hooked on this drug and you know perfectly well, why you are watching it. For the rest of you, I will give you a quick guide.
First of all, you should know that the UK version is far better, than any other version there is. Second - this is not a car show, this is pure comedy. Yes, they are presenting cars and they talk about cars, and everything in it is about cars, but I don't know a single thing about any of the vehicles, they have shown during the series. In my opinion, cars are powered by witchcraft. So, I am not a big fan of cars, but I have watched every single episode at least twice. Why? What is so special? Why should you watch Top Gear UK?
This is a show, which reviews different kinds of cars, mostly expensive, that we will never be able to afford, and the three co-hosts are always making fun with each-other in the classic British way. What's not to like? And it's not only the the reviews, but it is the way they present it. Top Gear has an amazing cameramen and editors, so when you are watching the show is like your eyes and brain are having a one-hour-long orgasm. Specially if you are watching it in HD!
Now, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are three amazing showmen, who are not only working in Top Gear, but are reporters, too. This makes them people, with great knowledge about their surroundings and about politics, and the other countries. This makes their jokes witty and when you combine it with the fact, that they are British, you have the perfect recipe for amusement. The thing is, they like making bold statements about other countries or big corporation, and other TV shows would not dare do it. It's not an coincident, that Top Gear has been sued several times, because of Jeremy Clarkson, and that BBC had to pay for the consequences. But he is still one of the co-hosts for eighteen seasons, so the public loves him and he will not go.
Some say it's impossible for him to wear socks, and he can open a beer bottle with his testes! All we know is, he's called The Stig. Yes, he is one of the main reason to watch Top Gear UK. The Stig has changed his personalities a few times and he has different cousins around the world, but what you need to know is, that he is a superb driver and he is worth your time.
And even if you are not a big fan of British humour, why don't you watch it just for the cars? Watching the the newest and most powerful and beautiful vehicles in the world, burning rubber on the Top Gear track. Admiring the most beautiful roads around the Globe and just wanting to be there. Just watching the scenery, while they are being on an adventure to the North Pole or somewhere in Africa, or in South America, driving some old cars and getting through different challenges. What's not to like?
Me and my buddy, who works in a rubbish removals London, can't wait for the new series to begin. For fans it is just a Chinese torture, having to wait a whole year to watch the new season of their favourite show. But there are good news, because on the 27th of January 2013, Top Gear UK is back in the game and it will have its "Christmas" special. If you haven't seen any episodes yet, this would be the perfect time to start.
