The best episodes from the UK Top gear. Brackets: (series,episode).

The Top Ten

1 Vietnam Special (12,8)

Even though it isn't cars, it's still a great journey with those guys.

Everything about this episode is brilliant. The cinematography, the chemistry between the presenters, the journey through the beautiful country of Vietnam. It's all fantastic. Top Gear at its peak.

Best Episode of Top Gear even when there are no Cars. I just love how Clarkson goes to the BMW showroom in hopes to buy a 250 and James' rescue of Darcy. Totally worth watching

2 Bolivia Special (14,6)

This is the best episode yet of top gear! Classic top gear special!

Funniest episode of them all!

Really great episode. Range Rover you beauty!

It is the best Special by far. I just wish they included the Bolivian Salt Flats on this one; maybe they can do Part 2.

3 Hammerhead-i-Eaglethrust/Geoff (14,2)

That it takes the boys all day driving around at 10 mph and everything going wrong on their car for Jeremy to finally realize and say "It's rubbish.." is amazing.

It is great to see those guys build their own car and make a mess.

This was absolutely hilarious.

The crash tests have me in tears

4 Middle East Special

This episode is one of the best ever. Watching Hammond get diarrhea and getting trolled by May and Clarkson the next day killed me - Danielsun182

Really enjoyed that episode - one of the best

5 Polar Special (9,7)

Became the first to drive to the North Pole - alleksas50

6 US Special (9,3)

I'm American and even though Jeremy doesn't like us I love top hear. The funny thing is most of what he says about us is true

9 Bulldog vs British Army (13,4)
10 Africa Special (19, 6 & 7)

Great Episode, This episode was truly amazing, I loved each and every second of it, it described what Top Gear truly is, it's a comedic non-scripted show about cars, and the Africa Special made it just that, Thank you Top Gear, Everyone in it, I have watched it ever since 2002 and this is my number 1 favorite episode.

Just started watching Top Gear and this was the first episode I've ever seen and if every episode is as funny, adventurous, brilliant, scary and entertaining as this one, I am in heavan. Truly a treat to watch. Will watch this episode again.

Best one, hands down!
