1.0 out of 5 stars US Special great adventure (the Florida fly-drive one)
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.

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!

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? etc)
the constant threat that should their cars die they would have to complete the journey in a beetle!
and of course richard might damage oliver!

once more this is great stuff, entertaining and a great laugh

vietnam special

jezza and crew this time have to drive across vietnam south to north in eight days something the american army couldnt do.
they are given 15 million dong (about 1500 quid) to buy a mode of transport, they cant buy cars as they are to expensive so they buy...scooters! which jeremy hates
they have to deal with
extreme weather (again)
buying new outfits
buying each other gifts (such as richard being bought a model galleon)
passing a Vietnamese bike examination test

should any of the scooters break down they will have to ride a scooter done out in american patriotic colours, whilst the radio plays 'born in the usa' by bruce springsteen

like the first 3 this is just as funny.

all in all this is hugely entertaining and laugh out loud funny.
they boys are a great laugh, the adventures are excellent the countries they visit are beautiful.
great stuff

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.....

Great DVD's, just a shame some of the footage has been taken out of the USA special. That was a bit disappointing.
