God damn you BBC legal department! We got served!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank BBC for providing us with a fantastic show called Top Gear. I would also like to take this opportunity to replicate what that dog is doing to BBC for failing to distribute Top Gear to their international fans (Top Gear America, a cheapened version for us rednecks, does not count).

I've remained quiet until today because a dedicated community of Top Gear fans has steadily appeased my appetite for the show. Now, their distribution mechanism has been challenged by BBC in the form of a cease and desist order. Never fear though, torrents will still be released via other methods, but I'd like to give BBC's legal department a swift kick in the ass for making things harder for us.

While we are on the topic of TV piracy, Mark Pesce of Mindjack wrote a great article earlier in the month on this very topic. He explains how the audience themselves have been empowered by technology to replace the broadcaster in the chain between audience and the producers. Word of advice, don't go down the road of the music industry. Don't fight us, figure out a way to use the technology to your advantage. Thank you for reading... adieu.

Dude, I need my TOP GEAR FIX. I would say we should all just move to England but... right...We should all just move to England. If I find a way to get episodes Ill let you know.

Not to worry my friend. Vuk the guy who usually records it, encodes it and uploads it will still be doing it. The torrents will still be released, probably on Mininova or Torrentspy. If anything Viper might drop the torrents in the IRC channel so the Final Gear community can get first dibs on the torrent.
