I've never really watched Top GearComcast On Demand currently has a lot of episodes available for free viewing, but they are in two separate places:

1. Under TV Shows, alphabetical, Shows T-Z, Top Gear has Episodes 1-6 for Season 3 (2012.) Expire Feb 5, 2013.
2. Under TV Shows, By Network, BBC America, Top Gear has 2 sections:
    a. Specials - expire March 1, 2013 - Apocalypse, James Bond, Top Fails Ep01, Top Fails Ep02, Uncovered (stunts and tomfoolery), At the Movies
    b. Best Ofs - - expire Apr 1, 2013 - 1 Best hot hatchback, 2 NASCAR and Hummer alternative, 3 Mobility scooter build, 4 Modified cars for train travel.

(Image removed from quote.)
I wonder if they ever looked at the 1970-1972 Honda 600 coupe, 122.8 in long, top speed 75 mph


if you know how to use bittorrent, you can find links to every episode on finalgear.com, along with summaries of the content.

here's the episode list

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Top_Gear_episodes

netflix and amazon prime both have several seasons streaming. The 1-6 for Season 3 (2012.) sounds like the american version which is ok, but nowhere near as good as the british

Jimmy Kimmel repeats in prime time — tied up by Matt Damon

The Matt Damon takeover of the Jimmy Kimmel Show will be repeated during prime time on ABC tonight at 10 PM, (after two episodes of Happy Endings.)

Anyone who saw Bryce Harper's appearance on that show may have noticed that Kimmel apologized at the end for not having enough time to bring out Matt Damon.  Kimmel has been doing that at the end of every show for many years.  imref posted a preview video of the Matt Damon Revenge Show in another thread:

Matt Damon's Revenge


Damon’s humorously hostile takeover of Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” proved to be an instant classic, generating lots of buzz as well as the show’s highest ratings since moving to its new 11:35 p.m. time slot earlier this month. The star-studded installment sparked a record-breaking number of tweets — 230 percent above average — for Kimmel’s late-night talk show. The program’s YouTube channel delivered 550,000 video views in the hours immediately after the broadcast.

The episode was such a success, ABC decided to air it again, in primetime. The Damon episode is must-see TV. Kimmel spends the show bound and gagged in the background while the Oscar winner hijacks his program. Damon appoints Sheryl Crow bandleader, trades in sidekick Guillermo for Andy Garcia and taps Robin Williams to finish his monologue. Kimmel’s sad puppy eyes look on as Damon chats up a conga line of celebrities, including Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore and Reese Witherspoon. Even Oprah makes a cameo.

...The Damon episode helped Kimmel trounce his competition in the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults 18 to 49, according to early Nielsen ratings. Kimmel beat “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” by 62 percent and CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” by 120 percent.

the fat dude with the beard in top gear is such a turd.


That's American Top Gear.  It's sort of OK, but nowhere near Top Gear UK.

^^

Apparently this was stretched out over more than one episode.  What I saw must have been spliced together.


Killing a Toyota part 1 - Top Gear - BBC


There's part 1, the rest should be easy enough to find on youtube for anyone interested.

You know an amazing amount about the show for someone who doesn't watch it. Did you research "The Office" for 2 days to create another long-winded post basing your entire argument on the interpretation of one word in my post?

Seriously? That's the response? I guess when one has no ground to stand on, they make their own.

... I do live in the US. Whether browsing the interwebz or reading forums like this, or seeing previews on TV, you'd have to be blind and deaf not to know the basics of the show. Still doesn't change the fact the only time I ever had an episode on TV was a couple years ago turning it on with Fox at around 7pm and an episode was playing. Figured I'd at least see if my preconception was wrong, and it wasn't, so changed the channel.

Oh, you caught me. I'm a closet Office fanatic who goes around denying he watches it and hates the premise.  I'm finally out and open, and damn does it feel good! Office pride, now where's my damn parade?

Jane Levy is a pretty damn hot... and I think Vega might actually approve of that comment.

"Jimmy Kimmel Sucks" featuring Matt Damon as host was awesome - Andy Garcia replacing Guillermo was priceless.

On that note, if you're watching Do No Harm, you're wrong.

Either they're crazy, or do what I do which is watch shows that are finished or have multiple seasons finished on Netflix or Amazon. I don't have a DVR so I only watch one show weekly, and even then just to whine that it wasn't as good as it was 4 seasons ago.

Yep. I don't own a TV, so I watch via Netflix or DVD. I'm cycling through old seasons of Parks, QI, Breaking Bad, Community, and hopefully soon Mad Men and 30 Rock.

What else is there to do at night after the kids go to bed? It's not like there's 3 hours of Nats baseball to watch per night...

DVR bro. Wait for a rainy day and catch up.

But Archer is one of the few I make it a point to watch.
