Description

Top Gear is quite simply the world's biggest car show. Multi-award-winning and broadcast in more than 100 countries, cars are just the starting point for epic road trips, over-ambitious projects, and loads of good old-fashioned mucking about by hosts and celebrities who really should know better. Top Gear Specials involve more intense challenges then the normal trouble Jeremy, James and Richard seem to get into including trips to the North Pole, Africa and Asia.

    How can they possibly miss one of the best episodes top gear has ever produced in my opinion. Clarkson and the cow on top of the camaro. May and his Cadi breaking down constantly. The "Get-your-best-friend-shot-or-arrested" challenge that endend with stones being thrown at them. I mean come on itunes it's a blatant overshght

    Itunes this is part of season 10 and you should put it in as one package and not make us pay $1.99 extra for it.
  • Part of season 10

    This is an awesome episode but it is part of season 10, why is it separate? I am confused as the Vietnam episode was a "special" but it is included in the season. Itunes needs to fix this.
  • keep it coming

    I love it so far. Top Gear is a great show. Where are the Artic and Bolivia specials? Itunes don't include some specials in a season and not in others then make a "specials" package and expect me to spend extra money while buying a season pass to both... it's not sneaky and I find it a bit of an unethical business practice.
  • Great episode, Great Show, Itunes Dropped the ball

    Top Gear is a first rate television show, however this "special" was in fact an episode from season 10, a season that Itunes has for purchase and I paid for. Why must I pay extra for an episode that I should have by my paying for the season it was a part of? I love the show, the episode is great, but this is a bit obscene, quit the scam Itunes, you should operate with the same integrity as all of Apples other great products.
  • best show in the world, but what a total rip off by itunes

    don't get me wrong, i'm a total apple fanatic, but this is just awful, evil, and greedy. these *specials* are supposed to be included in the regular seasons. the botswana special, maybe they just *forgot* to include when season 10 was released on itunes (but they really should've just added to and given to free to anyone who bought the season 10 pass) and months later realized it and put it in this category. but the winter olympics was supposed to be released today as the last episode of seaon 7. what a greedy, sneaky way of ripping people off 2 more bucks. c'mon itunes, you're not supposed to do stuff like this

    They should definetly add the other specials, like when they go to the north pole in a car or when they drive across america or when a james' plane races the bugatti veryron across europe.
  • WHY ARE THESE EDITED?

    3
    By JDBernardino
    I've been a big fan of Top Gear for years, so much so that I've gone through extreme lengths to actually watch many of these series online at the time they are actually premiered. But something I've noticed with these iTunes versions is how these specials are edited. Vietnam was the biggest one of them all. They deleted many of the scenes and for a biggy, they replaced the music from being "Born in the USA" by Bruce Springsteen, to the "Star Spangled Banner" hence making James' line: "If [Hammond] shows up with Bruce Springsteen I'll be very happy..." make no sense anymore. 3 stars for iTunes, 5 Stars for TOP GEAR.

    Why does iTunes/Apple continue to edit and censor out parts of Top Gear episodes and specials? Is it to make the program more enjoyable? Is it to make the program more "U.S. friendly"? This is ridiculous.....if I pay for a show, I want to watch the show.....not pay for and watch some doctored program that clearly takes out some of the best parts. Thanks for nothing iTunes/Apple and for ruining a fantastic show!!!

    I would buy the Botswana and Vietnam episodes and leave the other episodes. Especially the USA episode is a really bad episode. They set out to improve that USA citizens are fat, impolite and intolerable. I found it thoroughly distasteful, since I know they would not try the same stunts in their own country.
  • Best!
