So what did you think of Top Gear USA?

not bad IMO. i loved hearing that Viper V10 roar. loved the lambo segment too. kinda feels weird that TG USA has their own Stig now. seems as though this Stig is all business (just saying that because of the lack of funny and corny music he listens to in the UK TG). what did you guys think?

I thought it was pretty good. Pretty cool info on the viper, and the segment on the lambos was awesome!

I am trying really hard to not judge it based on TGUK, since I think it is great America has a decent car show besides Bullrun and what ever other crap they try. Good first episode, moderately awkward at times, but not bad. I found myself hoping more at the end that it would get renewed than I hoped it would get canceled. Nice first effort, we will see where they build from here.

Not a bad first effort. I'm not a big fan of Tanner Foust and I don't even know the other 2 guys. I guess we'll see if it lasts.

i didnt like it to much. i thought it was to scripted then the other one. i do like how similar they made it IE the seats they sat in..but to me it just seemed to scripted and in the UK version they went through the car more thoroughly

I agree^, This one was okay, I can't wait to see next week where their drifting.

But I do have to say I think I like the U.K version better, but it is too soon to judge.

hopefully they're just starting out crappy.

too many commercials. that really bugged me. I'd be sitting there then the commercials came on again and I said to my friend "wait what did we just watch??"

it was cool, but.... I don't like the accent the one guy has (no offense to anyone!) but it doesn't work for top gear. just saying. still needs a British guy!

here's hoping next week is better. I'll still watch it though.

and they need a better intro

Whoops made a thread about this after you.

I thought it was okay. The commentators SUCK. Well okay I liked everyone but the guy with the mole. He wasnt funny, nor entertaining. The guy with the beard was the only funny one.

I will be watching the whole season though. Awesome cars, and a nice size budget will make it not horrid. :) I hope it gets a bit better.

I think it was less than ok, it was a good tv, but like others said was hard to judge in base as the UKTG, but whats not to judge, it was identical visually speaking(the lenses in the camera werent as nice as uktg) and they try really hard making it funny Top Gear style but fail in that department. Not saying that is a bad tv show, just dull at times. Hope they get better .
