Re: who here watches top gear!!!

an AMERICAN top gear??? since when? what channel? i love me some top gear

edit: disregard, amazing what a google, wikipedia, and my cable box search will reveal. since this month, history channel, and i found out some times as well.. tues - 8pm. fri - 9pm sun - 6pm, 9pm, and 10pm. (these are all central time)

i definitely have to check this out. all i'm going to say is it better be just AS good or better then the UK version.

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

As an American, I am thoroughly disappointed in my country, lol. I LOVE Top Gear. It's the only reason I watch BBC America! I was completely excited for the American version, but I was left disappointed. It feels like I'm cheating on the UK version. It is literally like a direct copy, only with less funny hosts and very lame scenarios. I probably won't watch it again because it makes me ashamed to be American. No wonder the world hates us

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

thank you randall. i'm shocked, dumbfounded, appalled, disappointed, even ANGRY, and some what terrified of the idea that WE, AMERICA, could copy something and make it SUCK. i just have a hard time believeing it.. how could that be? i thought we were America, the greatest country in the world. we do everything better then everyone. (except make cars)

but strangely, at the same time i feel relieved because now i won't be so flabbergasted when i find my expectations to be unmet. i can ease my expectations a little and just be content and live with a potential sub-par performance since i could always continue watching jeremy, richard, and james.

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

Ok look. We all love UK Top Gear, but you have to realize, they have had 13 seasons to work the bugs out of their show. If you watch the original UK Top Gear's, they are TERRIBLE, possibly worse than the American Top Gear. Give these guys a chance, they do a great job reviewing the cars, and I think that the show will definitely get better as the episodes progress, and come a few seasons from now, we will have a great version of the UK Giant that we all know and love :)

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

I take back my statements. I never thought about it that way

Tanner was a monster, it's that fat dude that annoys me. Who names their kid Rutledge?

The whole attack chooper thing was stupid in my opinion. If the chopper really tried, it would have taken less than 5 minutes to tag them three times. IT'S A ****ING ATTACK CHOPPER! Buzz Aldrin is a pro though

And I just like seeing tanner foust drive because he is really good and he is a drift guy, thats badass :P lol

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

horrible, there jokes were crap, camera views were giving me a headache and looked fake.

i feel its going to be another downfall of the U.S, even if its the first episode..they had plenty of time to write and direct. they new what they had to top, and i guess they could've achieve surpassing the U.K

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

Im with brickdriver on this. Many shows get off to a rocky start and end up slick. Besides, when you compare anyone else to the BBC, well.... that's a pretty high bar. What's ironic is the English critics like to say "that peculiar British habit of getting something cool and American and then taking out the good part." So it goes both ways. Try to look at it this way, the other show isn't going away, so now we have two shows to enjoy.

Evidently TGUSA is exactly the same as TGAU. In the Aust version the 3 hosts are quite obviously copies of the 3 English hosts, and despite some vein attempts to "Austalianise" the show they end up with the veiwers cringing and thinking "WTF!" for an hour.

Well, it has to be said, that the US version of The Office also sucked. Not that the UK version of The Office was the best show on TV, but it was watchable. The US version was a waste of broadcasting energy.

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

well i watched the first episode last night. they seem to have tried way to hard to copy EVERY aspect of the UK version. they were not funny either. i think i let out one little chuckle. all in all not impressed. i will continue to watch it though since i'm just that interested in ridiculous comparisons between cars and outlandish competitions to take money to turn beat to **** cars into race cars... and also to watch famous people who can't drive try to race around a race track.

Re: who here watches top gear!!!

I watched last night's episode on The History Channel, and was not very impressed. I prefer the UK version myself, but i will continue to watch the US version to see if it gets any better. I'm going to the UK for xmas, so I'm looking forward to seeing the original TG while I'm there. Also in the UK they have the soaps on during primetime instead of the daytime like in the US.
