Top Gear is a very popular BBC production that has been on the air for 21 seasons now.

The newest season is quickly approaching and it is a show worth a watch. The show is on Netflix for those who have not been introduced to its brilliance.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are the hosts of the most watched factual program in the world. The BBC recently turned to the Lego Universe in order to pump fans up for the new season.

Last season on Top Gear there was a bit of controversy surrounding the show.

As the BBC themselves reported an executive producer took great offense to some things on last season. First and foremost that Jeremy Clarkson used the racial slur "slope."

Another interesting quarrel that produces had with the show came during the filming of a two part special in Argentina. The license plates on one of the cars seemed to refer to the 1982 Falkland Wars.

The hosts and their crew were run out of the country by war veterans who took great offense to the plate. The show claimed innocence and said that it was just a coincidence.

This Sunday at 9pm there will be an hour long show previewing the upcoming season. An Evening with Top Gear will air on BBC America.

Tune in to get a sense for how the show works if you haven't seen it before.
