    its a show from British... they test and review all sorts of cars, from million dollar supercars to $5000 POSs
    and they dont hold back on their reviews, if they feel that the car they are testing is crap, they say it

    its not at all like the bullshit ass kissing festivals they have on spike TV on the weekends

    I've been watching Top Gear on discovery for over a month and a half now.

    And it's really good, It's the british tests and versions, and now he just includes the american audiences in on their terminology.

    Fifth gear, the actual show from britain airs at 230 eastern wednesday on speed, and top gear isn't much different. I really enjoy the show. It is just better than the rest for some reason. I guess it is from the unrefined style and how they speak what comes to mind rather than reading prewritten scripts.

    5th gear is a spin off of top gear

    top gear on BBC came out several years ago... it was Tiff and Jeremy and a few other random hosts

    then channel 5 stole Tiff for their own show "5th Gear" (paid him retarded ammounts of money to come do their show)

    hmmm... I guess it is "5th Gear".. But it's got the same people, and the same format - It's crazy. They had a bullet-train vs Aston Martin DB9 show on it that showed the guy blasting down public roads at high speed to beat the train.

    He even looked drunk doing it.

    thats Top Gear ive seen that eppisode it was Jeremy Clarkson driving the DB9... he always looks that way


    ok heres the rundown one more time

    BOTH shows are from British
    Top Gear started first on BBC
    5th Gear is a spin off show that started a few years later on Chanel 5

    5th gear has been offered on Speed in the US for about a year or so
    Top Gear just came over here on Discovery about a month or two ago

    Saw it on tv the other day, they raced a Aston Martin and public transportation/Frances high speed train from some place in the uk to monte carlo in France. The Aston Martin won. :lol:
    Ohh I have Dish Network, not sure if that makes a difference on discovery programming?
