The gap between airing on the BBC and BBCA has shrunk again this year for Top Gear. If you’re a fan, and many are, you don’t have the uber-long year- or six-month wait for your UK automotive fix. The first episode of the newest season is airing on this side of the pond Monday, August 22 @ 8 p.m. Central.

Say what you like, but the show has been nothing short of stellar since its reboot a few years ago. The on-air interplay between Clarkson, May, and Hammond is sparkling, and the show’s segments such as the secondhand car challenges are some of the best spots around.

I’m a fan of the U.S. version of Top Gear, but it was the Brit TG that revived the automotive section of my brain and got me back into car shows and cars in¬†general. And that is more than worth the wait as far as I can tell.

    That’s so nice of them to give Hamster a box to stand on.

    American version = Top Gear Lite

    I’d rather have a good full bodied Lager than it’s pale imitation.

    One of the best shows on TV.

    The American version is getting better with time. They just had to work on their personal interplay.

    After 14 seasons, I’m still pretty impressed with how fresh they can make each episode.

    James May, get a haircut and a girl under 30 to pick out your clothes.

    Too bad season 17 is only 6 episodes long. You just get used to watching it and it’s over.
