Top Gear Seasons 11 and 12 DVD Reviews!


Top Gear Seasons 11 and 12 DVD Reviews! 

You can purchase these DVDs online today.  Buy Season 11 and buy Season 12


Synopsis: Accessible to everyone and full of stunts, challenges and special segments, it's irreverent, witty, self-deprecating, inclusive and passionate. The charisma and enthusiasm of the show's presenters have helped make Top Gear a worldwide megabrand attracting a global audience over 500 million in more than 20 countries. This season's highlights include a car chase in presenter-chosen old bangers for traffic cops, a race in the French Alps against extreme skiers, a race across Japan (a Nissan car versus public transport), a cross-country fox hunt (with Jeremy as the prey), and a Brits versus German Top Gear challenge. Of course, this season includes serious car journalism too, with exhaustive road tests of the latest models, man versus machine experiments, weekly power-tests featuring the world's most exotic supercars and all the tried-and-tested Top Gear favorites also return.

Review: Ok, this show is absolutely insane!  I mean that in the best of ways.  I tend to enjoy programming from the BBC and here is why...their programming is far less uptight than ours.  Its generally more honest and real..not to mention extreme.

Top Gear is a show that I've been hearing about for some time from my brother in law.  He is a car enthusiest and really enjoys the crazy stuff that they do.  I've been meaning to watch it, but didn't have the opportunity until now.  Seasons 11 and 12 are both on DVD now, so I figured why not give it a whirl?

These guys are nuts.  They basically take vehicles and modify them for crazy challenges and stunts.  Thats the base premise of the show, but it goes beyond that into a lot of hilarious set-ups and humor.  A warning to you all it is british humor, so if you really don't 'get' british comedy, then you might not think its all that funny, but you will definately be able to appreciate the crazy stunts.  This is the most popular car entertainment show in the world.  We're talking over 500 million people have seen this show..79% of video views on BBCAmerica.com is for Top Gear!  The Top Gear YouTube channel has over 184,000 subscribers and over 5.6 million views!!  You need to get in on this one.

If I had to describe this show in brief...think Mythbusters, but way more over the top and a lot more destructive.  I absolutely love this show now, and I wish we had something even half as good airing in America!  I highly recommend!
