A Show that is Trying to be Funny.

Being a huge fan of TG U K, I was ecstatic to hear a new version of it was coming to the U S. This is not the show I expected. It is unfunny and the same plot every time. Put 3 cheep cars in harsh conditions and whoever wins gets to drive a nice car in a straight line. I used to think Tanner Foust was awesome on his previous shows, but I lost total respect for him after this show. Also, every time all three guys pick the same type of car. Overall, TG U S is a wreck and is unfunny.

Don't Even Bother

The original BBC America Top Gear is quite an admirable piece of automotive pop culture. They're funny, they're usually rather intelligent and most often clean. The History Channel Top Gear is well...a disaster. They swear, they make off color comments and they're not even entertaining. The presenters are uninteresting and the tests very, very bland. Overall pass on this one and try BBC's instead.
