    Thread resurrection... I've only seen a handful of Top Gear episodes, but now that I have Netflix streaming, I plan of watching them all through the summer. They don't have Series (season) 1 available, but I've finished 2 and am half way through series 3. Awesome stuff, but it sounds like it goes downhill in the later series.

    It's still damn good. Wait till you reach the episode where they road trip from Miami to New Orleans.

    Question, how many episodes were there this season? seems like the Nile special was it for BBC America. There may have been one after it, but it seemed like an incredibly short season.

    From one of the posts under the link Lonemagpie provided
    As far as Series 1 never being shown on BBCA, I wonder if they just don't want to pay Jason Dawes royalties.

    They were doing earlier series' for a while last year & went all the way back to S2 and then that was it.

    Which means that Dave will have a few more episodes to add to the endless re-runs of Top Gear. :p

    Just for the record regarding number of episodes per season.

    S19: 7
    S18: 8 (+2 speicals 50 years of Band cars plus a Children in Need So really 7 episodes)

    S17: 6
    S16: 7
    S15: 6
    S14: 6

    In the earlier seasons it was longer but for the several seasons it's beena round 6 to 7 episodes.
