Cool Top Gear episode

Forgive me if it has already been posted, but I couldn't find it.

I found it quite hilarious, never really watched Top Gear before except for the killing a Toyota episode. Enjoy!

Bahh....
American Top Gear sucks.

Take a successful BBC show and attempt to immediately replicate the chemistry between three hosts that we don't "know"... and who don't speak with those funny accents.

Then make EVERY show primarily about the destructive goofy shit, and maybe a few non-memorable test drives on performance cars.

I watched most of the 1st and 2nd seasons, and I honestly do not remember ONE serious test drive.
I remember they did the celebrity in a normal car thing out at the old El Toro airfield... but I don't recall any test drives on Supercars.

Yep the BBC version is still running strong with new episodes.
American top gear is a joke of a show

Any show on our TV, that's any good, is a rehash of the BBC.

I remember when they filmed that here. And I remember not even caring enough then to watch the episode. 17 seasons of top gear on the bbc and these guys come along and try to ruin it. The guys, Richard Hammond, jeremy Carlson, and James May know their stuff. These guys would get laughed out of Britain.

Well....

The premise of the ATG stupid stunts is that the guys have to buy their vehicles for $500/$1000 or so... they often pick them up at auctions.

Try to find a Yota for $500/$1000 and you'll find a Yota that wouldn't have done much better than the domestics.


And for the record... Tanner Foust (the big guy) drives a Tundra 5.7.

I disagree....

American Idol, Top Gear.... they all suck ass.

The only thing halfway decent that American TV has lifted from the BBC was Life on Mars.

They know their stuff, and they have a personal chemistry that's developed over 17 seasons.

I'd like to check out the first couple of seasons of the original and see if the chemistry was there, or if the guys were still getting to know each other.

And +1... each of the 3 guys is highly accomplished and respected in the performance auto industry. My wife even suggested that "The Stig" was actually Clarkson.

Friends/Coupling, Who's Line is It, Office, Are You Being Served? Tons more, just cause you don't know them, don't mean they suck ass. Although, the couple you mentioned do. Also, I didn't say they were all good (BBC shows).

She didn't notice the 12 inches of height difference? Captain Slo can't drive a peg up a goats ass. Yes, respected, mostly on his "drinking" shows.

It's not funny in the slightest.
Friends was popular... yet I don't know anyone who watched it.

I like the office, top gear (bbc), southpark, and weeds, and kinda the walking dead. That's all I watch/ed. I don't ever watch TV though, just streaming internet.

If you don't like dwight, I don't know what to say to you!




edit: I have seen this episode though, it was entertaining but nothing like the bbc one. Also watched the dually 1 ton episode, terrible!

Yeah, no one liked Friends, I can't for the life of me understand why it still reruns ten times a day, on multiple networks... The Office, I agree. But still hugely popular, and a BBC redo.
