For those with slow torrents, try here:
http://www.bcopping.com/topgear10/top.gear.s10e04.ws.pdtv.xvid-river.avi

Took me about 10 minutes....

Smaller file, but good quality If you want a higher quality file for archives, just let the torrent run.

I recommend getting uTorrent- www.utorrent.com

I used to use Azereus but I like uTorrent the best.

Get the actual torrent files at a site like www.finalgear.com

Other files can be found at sites like www.isohunt.com

Not quite sure what you mean?

I don't have TIVO...don't need it to watch Top Gear..its usual Sunday night slot...a good beer and peace in the house.. whilst, as is often the case, I laugh myself stupid with JC and his crew...

Especially last night, the trip across Botswana in second hand junkers.. no 4x4's allowed and a max budget of 1500....so they turn up in a mix of unsuitable and catastrophic cars....

And the winner?

I had a very good laugh. That three-wheeler as space shuttle was a riot. And talk about politically incorrect statements - I am surprised the show is not yet banned.

The African Safari was probably the hardest I have laughed at anything in awhile.
