It takes a long time for the episodes to migrate from BBC in the UK, to the BBC in America.

Finalgear.com is the place to go. They give download links to each show as they come out (in various qualities, standard all the way up to full HD).

Top Gear is shown on TV?
I thought it was torrent-exclusive

Jeremy Clarkson isn't real, he only lives on your computer screen

Season 15 airs in the US on BBC America on September 27th.
Season 15 originally ended in early August I believe.
That's probably the shortest time gap between airing in the UK and later the US so far.

The only way to stay up to date with Top Gear in the US is to download it after it airs.
Season 16 is due to begin sometime in early 2011. My guess is early February.

We are behind as far is it actually coming on tv, but we are catching up.
They just filmed here in the states at Virginia International Raceway, then they went to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Driving a Ferrari, GT3 and the new Mercedes gull wing. I would have been there had I known.

For the last few weeks BBC America has been showing old episodes and calling them "The Lost Episodes."

I rarely watch Top Gear on BBCA. "New" episodes come out on a one season lag, and they're always strangely re-edited.

Different soundtrack, deleted scenes, and that weird BBC filter that makes all the episodes look like a soap opera.

In a commercial last night they said the season that starts Monday will be the original UK episode.

I'm pissed, they were traveling the east coast of the US filming last week and I didn't see them.

Don't feel bad, I work at VIR and was told it was the American Top Gear coming. Since I wasn't scheduled to work I didn't go up there.
