4.0 out of 5 stars Top Gear The great adventures 1, 31 Jan 2013
This review is from: Top Gear - The Great Adventures (Polar Special & US Special) [DVD] (DVD)
In this dvd boxset you get two Top Gear Specials, Polar special and US Special.

Polar Special- This is basically a race with Jeremy and May in a car vs Richard Hammond with sleigh dogs to the north pole. Each team would race each other but before they began, the guys were sent to a cold weather training camp to give them an idea of what they'd be facing. A man from the British SAS with a distorted face showed Jeremy how cold it could be. Top Gear crew weren't taking the dangers seriously so legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes was brought in to demonstrate how dangerous this region could be.

Eventually though, they were off.

This is a good episode of top gear and a very good adventure for the Top Gear team. There are funny moments and the car is brilliant with some beautiful scenery as well.5/5

US Special-Hmm.... This is meant to be a holiday for the top gear team, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May attempt to see if it is cheaper to buy a car for exploring the southern part of the United States for a week rather than renting one. Upon their arrival in Miami, the three were given US$1000 to buy a used car. This by far was one of the greatest episodes on the TV show however, on the DVD it is edited. he DVD release cuts roughly eight minutes of footage from the original broadcast, including a segment featuring a drive through a rainstorm, when the Camaro's wipers failed, and footage from the first scene in which the trio purchase cars. Some music cues were also changed for copyright reasons. really due to the cuts it spoils it and lets it down big time 2/5
