    TOp Gear USA Crap

    What a load of tosh...

    Following yesterday’s round-up from all you Top Gear fans at the studio filming, here’s a couple more glimpses of Top Gear US.
    And we now know the official launch date. Everyone across the pond, switch over to the History Channel on 21 November at 10/9c (we’re assured that’s an actual time format) or fiddle with your Tivos in the relevant way (we’re not quite sure what a Tivo is).
    Anyway, here are the trailers. Hope you enjoy them:

    But why do you think is it tosh ?

    Cant be JC, RH and JM for every possible programme all around the world.
    Give it a chance, the Aussie guys did a good job.

    Apart from that, we'll get the opportunity to see what US cars etc are like...or how the 'common' supercars fare in a different environment...challenges will be much more interesting as we will have no idea which cars will be lemons ....

    Looking forward to it already !

    'Made at 150mph' Yeah looks it aswell.


    Not looking forward to it, the presenters make the series. Those three are totally different to JM, JC and RH.

    So what, you were expecting 3 identical clones to the UK presenters just with an American accent? How ridiculous.

    Thats quite obviously not what I meant.

    What my point is, is that the presenters make the show. Although JM, JC and RH hammond sometimes play up to their on screen characters too much and at time act too naive about things, they can and do create some poignant and thought through pieces. Like Jeremy Clarksons piece about the Aston martin Vantage V12 and the piece on Aryton Senna.
    Im sure they struck a cord with all viewers, petrol heads or not.

    What made Top Gear so successful, in my opinion, was the presenters and their relationship with one another enabling them to create a show that was both entertaining to the average viewer but also interesting to the petrol head.
    Thats why the american lot seem totally different to JM, JC and RH.

    Im not for one minute suggesting they should be clones, if any thing that would make the show ten times worse. How ridiculous.
