Reviews

Four spectacular episodes in which the Top Gear boys travel to the four corners of the earth to tackle their toughest challenges to date, featuring extreme cold, extreme rain, extreme dust and some extremely angry locals with guns.

Polar Special The Director’s Cut
Clarkson and May, in a seriously modified Toyota, take on Hammond and his dog sled in a 450 mile race to the North Pole as they drive over thin ice to face in-tent hostilities, polar bear fear and desperate food fantasies.

US Special
The ultimate American road trip finds the guys driving $1000 wrecks over 700 stifling miles to New Orleans. In a Chevy, a Caddy and a Pick-up, their challenges include preparing a road kill ‘feast’ and baiting the rednecks of Alabama without getting shot.

Vietnam Special
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May travel to Vietnam and are told to travel the entire length of the country in just eight days, thereby achieving what the American military failed to do in ten years.

DVD Extras
• Commentaries with Executive Producer Andy Wilman and crew
• Deleted Scenes • Behind-the-scenes Photo Gallery

Botswana Special The Director’s Cut
Jeremy, Richard and James end up in Botswana where, armed with just three cheap, two wheel drive cars (and a massive film crew), they set out to cross the heart of Africa.

anyone who loves top gear must have this,from driving across america in 3 cheap cars to tearing through vietnam on scooters (which jeremy hates)

so first up....
the u.s. special
can you buy a car and drive across america instead of renting one?
well in this one the boys try to find out.
jeremy buys a camero, james buys a caddy and richard buys a pick-up each costing no more than 1500 bucks (you can imagine the kind of wrecks they have)
they then have to drive across 4 states!
along the way they have to deal with...
driving into a water way full of alligators
extreme humidity (with no air-con)
angry locals
and having to eat road kill!

this is a seriously funny episode.

next is the polar special
which sees jezza and james trying to beat richard in a race to the north pole!
jezza and james are in a heavily modded toyota hi-lux and richard is joined by a top husky racer and her husky team.
along they way they have to deal with
polar bears
putting up a tent
extreme weather
extreme terrain (which nearly wrecks the toyota)
abandoned buildings
crashed planes
and erm.....doing number two's outdoors!

again this is very enteraining and very very funny

botswana special

the boys this time are given a 1000 pounds and have to buy a car while in botswana then drive from the one side of africa to the Namibian border..1000 miles!
the only condition is the cars must not by 4 wheel drive.
along the way they must deal with
the okavango delta (a dried up river)
the possibility of breaking down and dying!
running out of fuel
having to strip their cars down to super light versions
wildlife (lions, elephants, honey badgers?

Format: DVD
As an avid Top Gear fan, my husband was pretty devastated when the sky box deleted all the top gear specials. For his birthday I bought them all for him. No complaints about the quality of the service, or the condition of the items etc. This feedback is aimed at whoever edited this particular show.
1. The music is naff (no highlights, no country, no pace, just a dull background noise that adds nothing to the antics)
2. It is only 52 minutes long, meaning that massive chunks are missing (for example, when they buy their gifts for their cars/selves - the air-conditioning unit, the clothes rack & the BBQ - no mention of them at all. They just seem to arrive in one shot, and are gone in another)
3. The show has been cut/edited in such a way that it just is not funny, and actually is pretty illogical.

Whoever did the editing ought to be ashamed of themselves, ruining a fantastic show! This DVD is a massive disappointment!

Save your cash and record it off Dave!

Had to endure these back to back for a couple of weeks - but I (female) don't mind, no matter how many times they have been put on I don't think we will ever tire or stop laughing. Hope they don't wear out.....
