Boys and girls... what would you like to see for the movie night? TopGear? A film? We're open to suggestion :)

I've heard that this is a fantastic movie, even if you're not into motorcycles. I really REALLY enjoyed the Top Gear episodes, tho. They are short enough so that if you get tired, you can usually hang on 'til the end of the episode as opposed to not getting to see the end of Talladega Nights 'cause I was pooped!:eek:

P.S. - I'm not voting because I can't vote for Top Gear!:mad::p

Well gee, I was going to add that to the list, but now I don't think I can edit the pooling :confused:

I'll vote for Top Gear, too.

Also wacky and fun are the Simpsons and Futurama movies.

If Top Gear is the decision, let me know and I'll bring it. :)

Where did you get Top Gear. MY GF looked for it and couldn't find it. If Top Gear is the winner we should request favorite episodes.

You can find it if you look around for it. :)

We will take a poll for which episode or episodes to watch.

Yeah! Top Gear's winning!

I have to say, the $1000 car competition was pretty darn funny...can you say cow roadkill on a T-top?

I voted Hopkins, though I won't be attending ... Back to trolling my normal topics.

I think I'm leaning towards Season 4, Episode 4.

Episode includes...

  • Audi A8 4.2 TDI (fuel economy run / 800 miles on a tank)
  • Porsche Carerra GT
  • Ford Ka SatNav vs. Pidgeons
  • Subaru STi vs. Mitsubishi Evo VIII
  • Car Darts
Does this sound good?

I'm also thinking about the Arctic Special, where they drive a few Toyota Hiluxes to the North Pole. I think we may have watched that last year though.

Another thought is to show the episode where Sebine Schmidt drives the Ford Transit van around the Nurburgring.

Maybe it's just because I work on JCB Fastracs but the Agricultural Tractor Competition is very funny since they don't know anything about those and they try to operate them to "grow petrol".
It's Season 9 Episode 5.
I'll have it on my ext HD in case.

An episode that I liked from Top Gear was the one featuring the Bugatti Veyron...and seeing as how Volkswagen ownes Bugatti, I though it'd be a good fit!

Not a fan of the Veyron, personally. It's a useless vehicle. Ooh aah, it has 1000 hp.

How about the Top Gear episode where they take a used BMW 320d and prep it then race it in a 24hour race. (Season 10 Episode 9) It does have the Diesel content topped up :D
