Top Gear is a BAFTA and Emmy award winning British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars. It began in 1977 as a conventional motoring magazine show. Over time, and especially since a relaunch in 2002, it has developed a quirky, humorous style.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

To me, Top Gear up to season 22 is a must for some casual fun. No need to start at s01.

I have 0 interest in cars, I didn't even bother getting a licence. But workmates kept talking about it and some of the specials. And when I heard they were doing an episode in Spain I simply HAD to watch. Loved it. Searched for some of those infamous specials I had heard about... And I was hooked...
When they truly talked about cars it wasn't my thing but I did learn some things and now I'm a tiny bit less ignorant about cars (even if a lot of what they said was BS), but everything else was so much fun it didn't matter.

But then 1 of the 3 original hosts messed up (big time!), the 3 of them left the show... And after watching 1 episode with the new hosts (s23) I lost all interest, it simply wasn't the same.
