So I'm not going insane then, could have sworn it was the red Astra this season.

CLEAR!!!

I know this thread is old, but is anyone else watching the current season. I've really enjoyed each episode so far.

It looks like the show is dead.

I've never watched American Top Gear, maybe I'll check that out now. I'm sure BBC will try to bring it back but it will likely be completely new hosts so it won't be the same and I doubt it will be successful.

I think I would rather clean my house than watch Top Gear USA.

The BBC will try to resurrect Top Gear somehow, they would be stupid not too. I just want to know what Jeremy, Richard and James will do now. I don't want to think that they will end their careers like this.

The rumor is that the BBC have lined up a replacement for Clarkson. I hope that they will take the opportunity to revamp the show as the format was getting stale.

America's top gear is far better than Australia's top gear, I know that much! And it's gotten far better than the first two seasons, those were really bad (tried to make it too similar to UK's show and it was just a fail)

Unsure what BBC will do, it will be interesting for sure. Hard to replace someone that has been doing the same stuff for you for the last 27 years.............. not to mention being a world-wide icon; easily more known than any king, queen or president etc. lol Jeremy Clarkson is "kind of a big deal."

It will be interesting for sure. I'm curious as to what Clarkson will do; I have a gut feeling he was ready to move on though; I'm wanting to bet he wants to enjoy retirement and maybe write books again. I could be wrong though, but that's what I want to think haha.

The biggest reason I watched was the interactions that Clarkson, Capt'n Slow and the small man-child had.

I can also attest that the only reason my better half watched was the subtle (and sometimes not so...) British humor that was the bread and butter of the show.

Take those interactions away, and there will be no NEW Top Gear in my household. I'll gladly hold on to my Top Gear via Netflix.

There's actually been some rumors floating around that Netflix has already reached out to Jeremy and the guys to do a Netflix original show.
