MY GOD YES!
i hate that sh*t!
they do it on almost all the shows now, its like they take a show that lasts 60 minutes and add the commercials so its down to 47 minutes, then they do the prequels and the last we saw them's and they subtract another 17 minutes, when all is said and done, your watching 1/2 an hour of programming in an hour
reminds me of Master Chef, Hells Kitchen and a few other crap ass fox shows.

the gt2rs "review" actually bugged me because it wasnt really a review. all we got was tanner saying that its a monster/beast (only at night though), donuts, and a drag race. and are they basically saying that in the heat, the car is crap? since the turbo only likes cool air? meaning if you live in cali or anywhere remotely hot, dont buy the car?....im all for acting silly in cars, but if youre gonna review something, at least give me some details and support for your opinions.
and before i get flamed on, i actually like this show. i think theyve made huge strides this season, and looking forward to more episodes. i just want more depth. even last night's challenge segment was pointless. they were just being jacka$$es in their $5k cars. or maybe that WAS the point of it?
Its like every network executive read the same USA Today article on the "shortening of Americans' attention spans" and simultaneously decided that every show now must have a recap to start and a prelude to end every segment. I just watched it happen five minutes ago: I don't need a recap.
The Death Valley sequence had me (and my woman) rolling on the floor - Adam's destruction of his cars are very TGUK-esque, and are hilarious. The show itself has greatly improved over last year.
As for the insane amount of commercials - I have trained my thumb to be quite good at hitting the fast-forward button on the DVR; it is sad that more than 15 minutes is otherwise "subtracted" from a good production.
with the first season, he seemed out of place and was my least favorite
so far, he's been great. He and Rutledge make the show for me... now if they can do something about the "Pro"...
he'd be better off as the Stig... he's just got such a forced personality... he just seems too shy to be on a show like this. His personality is so wooden... he needs to really loosen up.
I think any of those complaint can be lodged at any TG show, UK or US or otherwise. Their review was never meant to be like a Motorweek or a car magazine review, its more or less automotive porn. Good to drool at and serves no purpose. And which TG challenge was not about the hosts being jackarses anyway?
See, Tanner is without a doubt the pro. Adam does find creative ways to wreck things. However, Rutledge hasn't proven to be an expert on anything. He is just prone to dumb exaggerations and is sort of a weak southern stereotype. Idk, maybe they are holding him back.
