Tonight, for better or worse, the car show that defined car shows is coming to a close. Before we usher in a new era of automotive comedy, let’s take a moment to reminisce about the best car show... in the world. What are your favorite episodes from the show? When did Top Gear make you fall in love with cars? What’s… »
Chris Evans, Top Gear’s newest host, was only offered the job late last week, he said in his first extended words on the new gig, while speaking on his radio show. But that’s not really the big story. The weirder bit is actually about former TG hosts Richard Hammond and May. They were apparently considering a return… »
At this point no one really knows what the future holds for Top Gear, and it seems Clarkson, Hammond, and May have moved on to other projects and will not return. For you Jalops living in the UK, here is your chance to own the Hamster’s E36 M3 that he pushed to the limits of fuel economy across Germany. »
The Top Gear crew are back with Clarkson, Hammond & May Live, a new rolling circus that’s set to start touring this year. And they’ve already begun filming a few new segments to go along with their Back On The Road tour.
Top Gear has been off the air for a few months now. It’s sad. But there is a chance that Clarkson, Hammond, and May could have a show on Netflix. The title? House of Cars. Get it? »
You saw the headline, right up there? Up top? The one involving Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and non- Top Gear? And you’re still clicking through? Good, then we’re all on the same page. Because there’s plenty of things to drudge through in the world of non-Top Gear, starting with the Ape and the Hamster.
I love profanity. I don’t care who knows it. There’s something so gloriously freeing and exhilarating about releasing a nice, long, flowing, vulgar stream of foul language. When it comes to some world-class Freestyle Flying Off The Handle Swearing, I have to say Richard Hammond really nails it. »
As a comedian living in New York, I know plenty of people who, during their time between jobs, have turned to making a web series to fill their time and potentially turn their careers around. Now, former Top Gear host James May seems to have joined their ranks with his Unemployment Tube series. In this first… »
Not unlike many of you here, I grew up watching Top Gear. And I absolutely loved it. It was, for a period of time, my favourite thing on telly and Jeremy Clarkson was, for a period of time, my favourite person...in the world. »
The third biggest loser in this sad saga of Top Gear is the wider car media, and the business that surrounds it. Of course the first is the vast fan base that has followed the show for many years. The second, assuming the brand struggles to survive, is the team who work on it - and I can’t imagine how they feel right… »
If you've been living in your underground bunker for the last week, you may not have heard that Top Gear has been suspended due to a 'fracas' involving Jeremy Clarkson, a producer, and dinner. A report now says that the BBC offered to have James May and Richard Hammond finish the season without Clarkson, but the pair… »
The Fiat Multipla is oddly beloved around these parts because it's a complete mutant of a spaceship, and because it's so insanely practical. Maybe for both of those reasons, it's kind of looked at with disdain in its original home of Europe. So when Richard Hammond was in middle school, he took a bizarrely hard look… »
