Top Gear

For all those people who have yet to watch Top Gear because they "don't like car shows" or they "aren't into cars", be watching next Monday night at 7:30.

The challenge to Richard Hammond and James May in next week's episode is to turn a car into a re-useable shuttle craft. They know the car will never fly, but they get people from the British Rocketry Association to figure out how to launch it.


Trust me, it is a fabulously insane and inspired bit of TV, and the clearest example of why Top Gear is anything but a car show.
