'Top Gear' Crew Pelted By Rocks, Chased Out Of Argentina Over License Plate

'Top Gear' Crew Pelted By Rocks, Chased Out Of Argentina Over Li
The hosts of British TV show "Top Gear" were forced leave a film shoot in Argentina on Friday after an angry mob threatened them and pelted their cars with rocks. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May felt their "lives were at stake" during the incident.

The protestors were upset by the license plate on one of the cars, H982 FKL, which they believed was a reference to the Falklands conflict of 1982. Host Jeremy Clarkson claims producers had been alerted to the mistake before they reached the Tierra del Fuego archipelago and had them removed.

Clarkson told the Sunday Times newspap...

'Top Gear' (UK) Recap: Buses Are Not Cars, James May

Top Gear
Sadly, it's that time again - the time when we must say goodbye to Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May for another series. Tonight, Jeremy points at some fields, Richard minces round a corner, and James describes his ideal night in, which sounds horrendous.

The guys open the show with Richard's review of the second-generation Range Rover Sport. First, he gets back behind the wheel of the first-generation version, which he says is only bought by footballers and people married to them. Having gotten that out of the way, he picks up the keys to its successor, which he immediately t...

'Top Gear' (UK) Recap: Jeremy And James's Caravan Holiday Disaster

You know what always makes Top Gear better? Caravans!

But first: 1963 saw the birth of two things Jeremy doesn't care about: the Porsche 911 and James May. Since he still doesn't care about either of those things, he sent James off to go drive a 911. Unsurprisingly, James has a vastly different opinion than Jeremy. "How can you not like a 911?" he asks aloud. For the purists in the viewing audience, he then introduces us to a company in California that does custom-built recreations of classic 911s, and takes one of those for a spin. This also seems to please Captain Slow. After the film, J...

'Top Gear' (UK) Recap: Toyota Corolla vs. America's Cup Sailing Boat

There have been 20 series of Top Gear. That's like 10 times the number of seasons most TV shows get. And after all that time, Jeremy, James and Richard are still going strong.

Tonight, Jeremy claims "we've slowed down a little and grown up a lot," eliciting a collective groan from the studio audience. Of course, he's kidding. After the usual series-opening montage, he leads into a film where Richard is reviewing a series of hot hatchbacks: the Peugeot 308 GTI, the Renaultsport Clio 300, and the Ford Fiesta ST. After Richard takes the trio around the Top Gear test track, he turns them over ...

When last we left Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, they were venturing through Africa in cheap estate cars looking for the source of the Nile River. Here, then, is the second part of Top Gear's Africa Special. It's just as much off-kilter as the first part.

As dawn breaks, James is yelling at Jeremy for cutting out a portion of his Volvo's hood to replace the panel James removed from the door of Jeremy's BMW. Turnabout is fair play. Not content to stop there, Jeremy explains to camera that he's solved the BMW's issue with hill starts by attaching a log to the rear of his ve...

Welcome to the first part of the Top Gear Christmas Special. Or, since it's airing in March, the Africa Special. Tonight, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May pick up three cheap estate cars for another adventure in a foreign country they'll try not to upset. Jeremy has a BMW 528i that isn't as great as it seemed on the Internet, Richard is behind the wheel of a Subaru Impreza WRX, and James surprises no one when he arrives in a Volvo 850R. This trio of secondhand vehicles must endure only one challenge: the search for the source of the River Nile.

The show gets off to an awkward...

Tonight, on Top Gear: Jeremy Clarkson holds up a jar, James May points at a hill and Richard Hammond eats a sandwich. Cracking stuff, this. But watch out for the big, loud, bewildering (in other words, very Jeremy) twist at the end.

The show opens with "a big and important issue," at least according to Jeremy. He tells us that the roads are full of old people, but that cars aren't really friendly for the elderly, and Richard chimes in that they decided to go out, buy a car, and modify it for that purpose. We're off to the Top Gear Technology Center, where the twosome have a Fiat and sit in...

Tonight on Top Gear, James May draws on a board (that says "Kill Clarkson" on it), Richard Hammond waves at a man, and Jeremy Clarkson runs away from a table.

Jeremy opens the show with his uber-skeptical review of the new Vauxhall Astra VXR, which he actually likes, much to his surprise. He thinks Vauxhall spent more time on the front end of this car than they did on the whole of the Vectra, and thinks the ride is comfortable as long as you don't push the "sport" button. To compare, he then moves to some other options: the Ford Focus XT, which is cheaper, but not as nice to drive and has ...

Tonight, on Top Gear: Jeremy Clarkson points at a thing, Richard Hammond walks through a shop, and James May has some bananas. And they're all making another ill-advised trip to the United States, courtesy of "secret American" Richard.

They meet in Nevada, where they compare supercars. Jeremy brings the Lexus LFA, with James driving the Aston Martin Vanquish (which Jeremy promptly drools over), and Richard the SRT Viper. There's the usual banter over whose is better before Jeremy suggests they shut up and go for a drive. Unfortunately, they end up on a road where the speed limit is 35 MPH....

Now it's time for the world's most-watched factual TV show. That's right, it's Top Gear, which has graced us with new episodes on Mondays just two weeks after its US counterpart returned on Tuesdays. It's double the mayhem with two shows on two nights. You're welcome, America.

Tonight, Jeremy Clarkson introduces the premiere with the usual montage previewing the rest of the series, which you can see at the end of this article if you missed it, and which includes the also usual explosions, infighting and high-speed manuevers. He's then joined by co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May, ...
