I felt the same way the british hosts on the UK version seem more fit, i dont really like the guys on the US version. The guy in the pink shirt was straight, but the other 2 just seemed like they were thrown on the show.

Hope it lasts for many seasons tho!!!!

Re: TopGear USA

Yah I watched it too...I didn't care for the other 2 guys either...Tanner Faust is alright...he's a damn whiner on that Battle of the Supercars on Speed Channel though, he wasn't too bad on this show.

The show definitely isn't like the British one...for some reason Clarkson and those guys are hilarious to me despite making fun of American brand cars.

The hosts on this show don't mesh and the cameras don't seem as enthralling...
We'll see, there's like 10 or 13 episodes, so I'd say it's too early to shun it now.

Re: TopGear USA

I caught this, I didn't even know it finally aired stateside until my friend told me.

Tanner Foust I get. One guy is Adam Ferrara who is a comedian. I see his role as being the comedic outlet. I have no idea who that other guy is.

As for the episode, it was alright. The thing I like better then the British version is that there wasn't a lot of car bashing just because it didn't have some "psuedo-pedigree" (e.g., Jaguars are the greatest of all cars because they originate from England). I'll give it a few more episodes to fall in place.

Re: TopGear USA

I fought most of the first one. It doesn't have that British humor, that I enjoy, like the original. I'll probably watch some more of it. It is automotive television, after all.

Re: TopGear USA

Yeah It was cool watching the Cobra helicopter chase the Viper , did ya catch the mention of traction and electronic stability controls being mandantory for all american cars by 2012 - hence the Viper sliding all over the road . Looks like Ford is ahead of the game with the 2011 5.0 's with the new electronic driver assists - which you can mostly disable with " sport mode "
I liked how they ran all the cars on their track and posted the times. Am I wrong or did the Viper have a faster time than all the Lamborgini's ?

I'll definately check it out again Sunday , when is the Mustang episode ?

It sucked. Was expecting way better from our own version but the American version just sucks. I will stick with clarkson Hammond and James may for now. .....keeping in mind I don't care for there mustang reviews, but they did have some good suggestions ex: better handling/rear end and more horsepower to start with when new off the lot befor mods

Re: TopGear USA

after watching the 3rd episode it keeps getting better and better
the chemistry is definitely developing between the 3, although adam ferrara still isnt that funny tho for being a comedian. rutledge is funnier i think lol

I tried watching it, I think it's horrible. The British version is better IMO. It's like they are trying to hard to make it an awesome show.

yea, but remember when the British version first came out it took some time for them to mesh and adapt so give it some time.

Was wondering that myself. I was thinking Speed Channel or Versus not the history channel.

The BBC and the company that owns Discovery, TLC, The History Channel, and a bunch of the other ones have collaborated on stuff in the past.
