Let It Snow on a New TOP GEAR


What better Christmas gift could we get from BBC America than a new (to the US) season of Top Gear? (Heck, this appears to mean we’re only a season behind now. If we were as quick as The Stig, we’d actually catch up.) As usual, the boys can’t behave: in this episode, they race an Audi against skiiers. They usually lose these kinds of challenges (to a marathoner, to a parkour..er, to a mudskipper), and the way their frustration mixes with genuine admiration is part of the fun. Also–the pretty Rupert Penry-Jones pops up as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. We’re glad you’re home for Christmas, Top Gear!
