Default EDU - How to watch Top Gear episodes

What is Top Gear? Its the best automotive show in the world. Some of you may have seen clips online from it like the Bugatti video in this thread
http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthread.php?t=38133


If you have only seen clips here and there though you are missing out on one of the coolest and funniest shows ever. Since it doesn't air here in the US you have to download it, but it is available online in good quality if you know where to look. The easiest is to use a bittorrent program to download them. There are many programs to download torrents but for an example I use Utorrent. You can get it from here

http://www.utorrent.com/download.php


After you download and install U torrent you can go to a website like mininova and download torrents which is the video basically. Click on the link below and you will see all the top gear torrents available.

http://www.mininova.org/search/?search=top+gear


When you click on one, another page will come up with info on it and there will be another link to "download this torrent" When you click on that it should open up with Utorrent and it will ask you where you want to save the video. After Utorrent finishes downloading it you watch it like a normal video.

Discovery CHannel often runs older epsidoes at 10pm one night a week.

Older episodes, they weren't current at all. I think they were about a year behind. I also heard it was edited with some of the foreign references and comments taken out so it was less obscure and easier to understand for people here. I am pretty sure it was canceled on there too or at least not airing them regularly anymore.
