  5. You Can Now Stream Seasons 2 Through 17 Of Top Gear On Amazon PrimeRead the original story w/Photo

I didn't believe it at first, but sure enough, you can now watch every episode and specials featuring the three amigos all the way up to Season/Series 17. Then you can either purchase the remaining seasons of the show on Prime, or head over to Netflix to stream 18 through 22. I have to admit I was sad when Netflix dropped the earlier seasons, and it's kind of odd and complicated how these streaming deals get worked out.
