Seasoned watchers from across the pond deemed tonight’s Top Gear USA “one not to miss” in our comments section a few months back, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t bring it to your attention.
In the ninth and penultimate episode of the series, Adam, Rutledge and Tanner head off to the frozen northern state of Alaska to discover a question close to every American’s heart: what is the toughest truck out there.
It’s an episode that allows Top Gear USA to join Northern Exposure, Frozen Planet and Ice Road Truckers in the “good TV made in Alaska” gang (although if you include films, we’ll add ‘Insomnia’ with
Harvey Keitel Al Pacino to that list).
If you’re in the UK, it’s on tonight at 7pm on BBC3, and there are also the best clips from the series on the BBC3 website if you want to catch up.
Let us know as always what you think in the handy space below. And feel free to add any Alaska-based TV classics we may have overlooked…
