Clarkson became my hero when I read that he popped that Limey

Amazon is resurrecting the show, but the BBC holds copyrights on "stig," and a whole mess of other things like the " reasonably priced car and array of celebrities to take it out on the track." Also, much as I miss it, I think they'd just about run out of gas and become a parody of themselves. I'd feel a lot better if Netflix was involved; they are masters at turning out fresh product.
