Well there are way too many to pick from, i love any of the 1500 pound challenges, or the Eurofighter Typhoon against the Veyron, but its an amazing show, top notch.

Not one episode, but different parts:

Isle of Man:
- Porsche 991 vs. BMW M6 vs. Aston Martin V8 Vantage
- BMW CSL + BMW M History + Honda S2K vs. BMW Z4 vs. Porsche Boxster

Cheap Car Challenge:
- Volvo vs. Audi vs. Rover
- 1500 Quid Porsche

Full Length Roadtrip Episodes:
- America
- Polar Exploration (North Pole)

Car vs. Public Transport:
- Aston DB9 vs. Train
- McMerc SLR vs. Boat
- Ferrari 612 vs. Plane

As for car reviews, too many to name. In general, I do prefer the reviews from Clarkson and May over Hammond.

Top Gear FTW!

Picking a favorite epsiode is like trying to a pick a favorite child....all are quite entertaining. The Artic and Africa ones score big just on cinematic appeal!

When Jeremy was driving an Audi 8 through Switerland trying to see how far he can get on one tank of gas.. I think it was a deisel. That was cool.

And of course when they came to America and almost got killed by the redneck "boys".

LOL,,, They had painted on these beater cars,,"Hillary for President",, Nascar Sucks,, and Gay pride,,,

When Jermey said,,"look,,, they even shoot at thier stop signs"... too funny.

Polar expedition
24hour Britcar race
Best road with 911 GT3 RS, Gallardo superleggera, and N24 Vantage
American roadtrip 1

Recent episodes have been a bit of a letdown, but there's plenty of gold to choose from the archives

My favorite really has to be when they were "racing" to light the illuminations thing in economy cars. Towards the end, I actually found my self leaning toward the screen. The suspense was killing me!! Everyone, especially Clarkson, was funny in their typical ways. Perfect challenge!
