Top Gear America

Lets discuss this again since the other thread is closed.
Top Gear (U.S. TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What do you guys think? Stupid, cool, unsure.

I personally think its gonna be stupid. The presenters are a racer and two comedians. Regular top gear its just three broadcasters/journalists who love cars. The challenges (the moonshine one) seems to dukes of hazzard to me and thats not exactly what top gear is about. And I'm not sure I'll like them sayin 4-door, and trunk, and hood. I liked top gear and there british car terms aka boot and bonnet and saloon. Idk I'll watch it but I'm not optimisitic.

Stupid, but I hope I'm wrong. You can't say anything bad about a car in the US without ticking off a sponsor. The chances of getting a completely honest critique of a car? None. I don't think they'll be able to say any car is American rubbish. The guests and track times could still be interesting.

yeah exactly, i learned that top gear uk is a publicly funded show, this one is funded by the people who pay for ads on it. So i'm sure they'll be testing a dodge viper and not say one thing about it being junk, or testing a vette and not say one thing about it being cheap plastic. Also what do you think they are gonna do for races?? NYC to LA, thats original.

They have a Top Gear in Russia, Australia, and Germany, it was only a matter of time before it made it to the U.S., and in each of those countries too, they're very different from the original.

But I mean...you could always just keep watching the originals anyways if you don't like the one here. It's not like it's hard to find new episodes on the internet.

It's a new show. If you go into it with the idea that it's going to be stupid you will prolly find it stupid. So what if the title is the same? Go into with an open mind, and you may like it for reasons totally different than you like the original.

"Producers of the History Channel version have noted a greater interest in car customization by American car enthusiasts than in Britain, an element that will be incorporated into the new show."

Im interested to see where thats going. I doubt it will live up to the expectations set by the original but I'll give it a chance.
