Just watched American Top Gear

I think I know what rape victims feel like now. Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if I had never seen the original, but I have.

I saw one minute of the trailer and felt like dying from boredom, no point in wasting my time on the show.

I was expecting much worse. By no means good, 6/10 IMO. Like a 6/10 chick - you'd fuck her, but you've been drinking and won't be proud of it.

They should have selected these guys for the show. I'd watch it religiously if they had.

I wouldn't have even fingered this one. It's like a chick that has great parts but they are put together all wrong. Great tits, but they're way too far apart. Beautiful eyes, but one is higher than the other. You want her to be beautiful but it just isn't working.

I think it is the horrible hosting that ruined it for me. The way they tried to explain the different parts of the show. And they changed some things like "Big Star, Small Car." WTF?! Why not just keep it "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car?" And listening to them narrorate the laps was painful.

I'll keep the real thing, thanks.

i watched 5min during an injury in the Giants vs Eagles game, it was so painful to watch, I went back to football to watch a man get put on a stretcher, that was far more entertaining

hope they pull the cord soon, it was pretty bad. Everything seemed fake and forced.

I can see your point. But depending on how long it's been I'm always down for something new (as opposed to rerun after rerun after rerun)

At the end of the day, it's more car content on TV, and while far from perfect, I chuckled a few times but otherwise tuned out the cast and was able to watch some pretty sweet cars rather than a dance contest or a desperate housewife or William Shatner attempt to make a TV out of a stupid ass twitter feed...

It's deffinetly no Top Gear (original) and I really wish they would have done there own thing instead of a Top Gear US per say. With that said, it sure as hell is better than any of the other car shows on TV (except Top Gear original).

Tanner is a toolbox. One of the least interesting people I have ever seen talk about cars.

I agree...but I do welcome a professional driver for the little "stories"...I mean Jeremy is good I guess but Tanner's drivings in the Viper video before the challenge looked good

did anyone see the first season of top gear? It was horrible, it was so damn boring im surprised I got through it after seen the newer episodes. Give this one a chance, even the original top gear had to change a cast member to get James May.

It was awful in too many ways to count. They are even ripping off the OG show with the stunts and contests they showed that would be coming up. The water filled cars. the Attack helicopter chasing them, and various others. Nothign original, all three of them should go away. The tall fat dude needs to go back to sitting on his couch eating cheetos. Adam needs to go back to putting out horrible comedy tours, and Tanner needs to be taken off the TV all together. He is about as interesting as watching a coma victim.

Forget the car stuff not even being that interesting. Why were they attempting to act in that helicopter chase scene? I dont give a flying fuck about any words that come out of any of their mouths. Just fucken drive. The show should be broadcast with the option to remove the speaking audio track.

They ripped off every aspect of TG, including the name, which should have been TG USA or something. Some of the dialogue was just painful, and none of them were the least bit funny. I'll give them the rest of the season to work it out though, maybe they'll have better chemistry at that point.
