On "Top Gear," hosts Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May often risk life and limb to perform feats for the show's viewers. Many of those endeavors are successful but not all are. With "Ambitious but Rubbish," Hammond presents clips from the main show that highlight some of their boldest stunt attempts -- a number of which didn't go as planned. Featured stunts include attempts to drive up an Icelandic volcano, cross the English Channel in homemade, amphibious vehicles and construct a V8-powered rocking chair.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May hosted the show for more than a decade before giving way to a new crew in 2016, including actor Matt LeBlanc and automotive journalists Chris Harris and Rory Reid.

This reimagined U.S. version of "Top Gear" gives a nod to its British roots while introducing new elements to the long-running franchise. In addition to reviewing exclusive and state-of-the-art vehicles, the series pays tribute to America's rich automotive history by reviewing culture-defining vehicles from the country's past. Viewers get a front-row seat as the car-obsessed hosts race the cars on scenic highways and historic tracks of the American West. Each episode features a celebrity who competes to land at the top of the leaderboard. Also along for the ride is the franchise's mysterious test driver, Stig. Hosting this version of the show are actor William Fichtner, drag racer Antron Brown and automotive journalist Tom "Wookie" Ford.
In this space spoof, Dave Lister (a chicken-soup-machine repairman) is a survivor of a radiation leak on his mining space ship. The problem is that he is the only survivor. But wait ... it gets better. Having come out of suspended animation 3,000,000 years later, Lister only has a holograph of his intolerable dead shipmate, the vain Cat (an evolvement of his former pet), old and senile ship's computer Holly (think HAL with memory loss) and robot Kryten.

An eccentric yet compassionate extraterrestrial Time Lord zips through time and space to solve problems and battle injustice across the universe, traveling via the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), which is his old and occasionally unreliable spaceship that resembles a blue police phone box (but changes its appearance depending on its surroundings) and is much, much larger inside than outside.
