Top Gear

I have never heard of this British show called Top Gear until this past weekend when it was announced that Michael would appear in an upcoming episode. Well, said episode will air this Sunday evening in the UK at 8pm on BBC Two and BBC HD. I'm sure there will be some sort of stream of the show for US viewers and everyone else. Meanwhile, visit the website of Top Gear to see other images (see Michael starting at #14)  from the taping of Michael's episode here.

We're American, but my man is not only aware of this show, he's OBSESSED with it. When I told him Michael would be on it, his eyes almost bulged out of his head. Somehow I get the feeling that Michael had a similar reaction when asked to be on it. LOL.

Top Gear is one of the most popular shows here in the UK. Each week there is a celebrity guest who is the "Star In A Reasonably Priced Car". Last week it was Ryan Reynolds and the leader with the fastest lap time at the moment is Rowan Atkinson.

So it will be exciting to see how well Michael does and what his lap-time will be.

Not surprised about Rowan Atkinson; that dude is a speed demon. He once crashed a million dollar McLaren F1.

Omg, this will be a fantastic interview, the hosts are always fun! The bbc iplayer website is the best place to catch it after it's aired, if you have something that will hide your ip if not in the UK.

And if someone does not live in the UK is how you can watch this program?

Michael is such a trooper! He just goes on with his life, which is quite wonderful at the moment. Never heard of it myself, but I'm definitely gonna tune in!

I don't know about a previous trip, but I read that Michael, his father and a good friend biked through Europe last year, after he finished Prometheus.

Can someone post a link/video of this taping, because we don't have that channel here :(

I think a ton of us would greatly appreciate it
thanks!!

I went to BBC Two, and the video is only for UK residents.

I'm hopeful that it will appear on Youtube or some other website in due time.
