probably eventually. could be next week, could be next month. I'm sure BBCA will want to make a big affair of it to get the most out of the ratings.

If they show it I expect it will be missing the penis wheels. They were excellent.

That's not the last episode. No star in a reasonably priced car.

Could be another bad listing in the DirecTV guide, believe they didn't get some others right during this transition.

It is the final episode, it's just the listing is incorrect. The segment is the same but Lineker does not appear. Since there was no studio audience he never got to make an appearance.

It's also a 70-ish minute episode too, so it a has a slightly longer runtime than normal.

Yeah, it seemed like they were going to be able to do it after all right before everything went kaput.

Maybe NetflixGear will be able to ...

Which as expected were edited out. It's a crime against humanity to show anything that looks vaguely like a dick on BBC America. Which is unfortunate given the number of childish penis gags Top Gear has had over the years.

I didn't watch it again...but so silly to edit that out and glad I got to see it. Was pretty funny/weirdly awesome to have wheels of penises. Chromed even.

Given how his F1 career has gone lately that might not be a bad move.

So the new Clarkson, May, Hammon + Wilman series has been signed to Amazon, and will be on Amazon Prime Video.

http://www.theguardian.com/media/201...mazon-deal-bbc

Three series deal. Name TBC. Production starting imminently for launch next year.

In some ways a very smart move. It will be impossible to compare ratings between the BBC reboot and the Amazon service, so there is no issue with 'success' or 'failure' on that front. And I'm sure Amazon are paying very well...

So that's what Amazon spent their first significant profit on.

Damn, wish it'd been Netflix. May have to get Amazon as long as it's not an extra charge on top of prime.

I was really hoping for NetFlix as well. I dont wanna have to pay for another streaming service. Its great in all, but in the end you end up paying for what you pay for cable tv and it becomes a little complicated.

tv: Samsung 55HU8550
avr: Pioneer VSX 824

Amazon Prime is a hundred and something bucks a year. They offer quite a bit of content that comes with that membership plus free shipping on all prime warez. My cable bill is 255 a month and just try to find something decent to watch at 3 AM. When TWC goes Tango Uniform I will not shed a tear. Normally I don't like to see jobs lost, but after dealing with their rude, inflexible, insufferable customer service and Windows 98 tech cable boxes, I can comfortably tell those employees to "suck it". Bring on the a la carte.
