I'll Be Watching
I can't believe how many people are slamming something they have never seen in it's entirety. Thats pretty ignorant. This version isn't trying to compete or top the UK version. I believe it was created by or in association with the UK producers so its NOT a rip off show. It's just an American version. How about protesting the many Housewives shows, etc! What other car show's do we have?? I'm a car enthusiast, so the jokes or hosts aren't as important, I want to see the cars. It doesn't matter how they are displayed just as long as they are there. The more car shows the better! I would have preferred Adam Carolla be a host, but that's my only gripe. Give it a change, if you don't like it, watch the UK version, jeez.
Get out of 1st gear
Note to producers:
1) Personality - Just having young mouthy guys is not the ticket. You need people with some quirkiness, personality traits that are odd yet likable.
2) Chemistry - the hosts need to be able to play off each other. Frat boys with cars isn't going to fly.
3) Editing - clips that have panache and some style to the cutting, not just guitar power chords in front of a fast car.
4) Go beyond cars - its the entertainment that people are looking for, with some exotic cars and ridiculous challenges thrown in. Sorry. I can afford a Lancer so don't really care.
Haven't we tried this before?
Do the homework as to why Top Gear UK is so successful.
Painful to watch
I want my 5 minutes back.
