    you can't actually choose episodes here (if you're using a mac you need to use firefox) but its a dedicated channel that just streams episodes continuously.

    I just turn it on and let it run in the background when I'm doing dishes or washing clothes.

    Believe me, I'm the last one who gets offended over things...and I'm far from offended over this video (BTW, I'm Mexican)

    But saying just because something is FUNNY (which is in the eye of the beholder...calling a Mexican car a Tortilla is hardly my idea of bringing the LULZ) automatically makes it NOT racist is silly logic.

    It could be funny...but that's because you find racial humor funny.

    I've seen my fair share of TG's...apart from the fact that their cultural/racial stuff isn't really that funny (which again, is subjective), I just don't get it in the context of the show. Just drive the pretty cars through Europe, please.


    Calling a car a tortilla offended you? I find that in itself hilarious. Do you know anyone that drives a truck for a living? You should watch the episode where they all buy 'lorries' because Jeremy makes some great jokes about how they all kill prostitutes.

    Clarkson's favourite line. 'BMWs, designed by Germans, driven by tossers'! LOL

    Here's the BMW critic in all his glory. [​IMG]

    Love the show. More entertainment than cars, though.

    Absolutely. Top Gear is the wrong show to watch if you want to see car reviews. Jeremy takes the cars out on the track, finds something wrong about them, and the rest of the review is basically power slides and speeding. Sure, he might get a few valid points through now and then, but it's mostly entertainment.

    Fucking A...the reading comprehension around here is really lacking. Let me be clear...NOTHING they said offended me. Nothing.

    I was making a point that calling Mexican sports car a Tortilla was simply not funny. Not that it was offensive. Not that my feelings were hurt. That shit just wasn't funny. As in I sat there watchin it thinking "huh, well THAT wasn't funny". They could have gone in so many more directions with that joke that probably would have been more offensive and funnier.

    Having a lame sense of humor also probably helped.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here....Dane Cook fan? Larry the Cable guy, maybe? NO...Jeff Dunham.

    Hey, look it's a Canadian sports car.....it's called the "canadian bacon" GET IT?!?!? Bwaaahahahaaaaaaa.

    They made a fucking Mexican sports car joke and didn't even mention that it seats 10 Mexicans, comfortably. [​IMG]
