Top Gear Season 10 DVD Review

Top Gear 10: The Complete Season 10, Warner Brothers and BBC Video.

Each disc Includes 3 discs with 3 or 4 episodes on each. The video and audio are excellent. The video is in it's original aspect ratio and enhanced for 16X9 televisions. The video quality is top notch and features no video related issues. The quality of the production is greatly helped by the excellent video quality as you can enjoy all the action looking gorgeous.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are the hosts ( or Presenters in English speak); they are wonderfully droll, snarky and witty as always.

The episodes include the usual car testing of new models, a look at cars to exotic and expensive for any regular person to own ( or even drive or see!), a jaunt through the Kalahari Desert (located in Sub Saharan Africa), an attempt to cross the English Channel in amphibious cars, a race through London at rush hour, and a time trial against a jet!

The special guests who are invited to road test a "reasonably priced car" include Helen Mirren and Simon Cowell. Also the "Cool Wall", "The Stig" and Top Gears take on the news are back.

The production values are wonderful as always; the desert sequences are amazingly beautiful.

This is really for those who love the show and enjoy "car talk" ; it takes a few episodes to understand what is going on and what "role" each presenter plays.

But it is great fun -- you will never look at cars in quite the same way after viewing this. This season is great for a new fan, just as much as it is for a long time fan.
