    American Top Gear!?

    Found this last night while being a cyber geek

    http://community.sparknotes.com/inde.../#more-1212526

    Will it be anywhere near as good as the mighty English version? Methinks no

    It wont be anywhere near as good - to us.

    To them, it will be better. Take the Office. Our version is one of the funniest things out on DVD. Their "version" of it, is merely watchable with the thinnest prospect of a giggle. They loved it like they did Friends...

    Us and the yanks do things different. We laugh at different things, and like different things. So yeah - to me and you, it could well be crap, but to them it will be 100% better than our version.....

    God what ever us Brits have, the Americans have got to have their own version

    Needless to say, it'll probably be rubbish compared to our one

    English version? I didn't know about this. I've only seen the UK show.
