    Thread: No more Top Gear until January 2013...

    1. 05-09-2012 07:09 PM #26
      I'm interested to see what they do with the Toyaburu.

      Clarkson did gush on the 1M, another small four seater with a similar concept.

      Yeah, same way as "I want a divorce".... followed by "Oh and I am taking this house and you won't be seeing your kids again".

      Top Gear US shouldn't be allowed to wear the Top Gear name. It's so god awful. All 3 hosts are painful to watch. It's so boring and the acting is horrible.

      Look at your signature, now back to mine, now back to yours, now back to mine. Sadly, yours isn't mine, but if you stopped using your old signature and changed it to this one, it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a car forum, reading this signature.

      I don't mind top gear U.S. It's a work in progress. Car enthusiasts should be happy for it, not point out flaws.

      This is horse****. Fuck Simon Cowell and his stupid face and his stupid hair and his stupid 'better than everyone else' elitist attitude and his stupid shows that do nothing but award talentless oafs contracts based on how often he can convince a country to abuse telephone lines.

      TGUS isn't there yet. They are getting better but they aren't close. They need to change some things but they don't need to change things as often as TGAU did because that was their downfall. They went through 4 new hosts and opening credits and test tracks and SIARPC car it seemed like every time a new season had started. If TGAU only managed 3 episodes in Season 3 and yet still put together a crossover with the Brits, TGUS can do it as well.

      The TGUS test track for the stars is fine. They need a place to test the stupid fast cars though, and I'm guessing wherever the test track is set up for the stars isn't big enough. They were of course going to rip some stuff from TGUK, but they have come up with their own material that the Brits hadn't thought of yet. I really liked the 'first car' segment. That was unique. They've had one or two others that I don't recall seeing on TGUK.

      I sorta like how the opening credits now is their own thing and doesn't use Jessica, but it also doesn't seem like TG without Jessica playing. I recognize that tune EVERYWHERE and sadly it says TOP GEAR to me more than it says Allman Brothers. I like how brash Adam is, and maybe if Tanner toned down his 'know it all' about driving (TGUK has no pro driver host) and just drove a car he would come across better. I don't care at all for Rutledge though. He seems like the whipping boy to the other two and moreover, seems overly excited just to be on television and it comes across as overload. He lacks control of his excited puppy pee.

      /rant

      PS: Don't take it personally, Rut. I would still buy you a if I ever met you.

      Top Gear Korea is pretty good tbh but people stopped subbing it =\

      I agree that the track is okay for the celebrity guest but is too small and rough for anything fast. It always seems to be covered in dust too but you could argue that the uk track is always covered by water.

      He may look like he's close to death, but a little known fact is that Clarksons molt every half a century (± 5 years)

      Maybe because there only needs to be one Top Gear? If people in the US want to make a car show they should make something original and fresh that hasn't been done before. At least give it a different name ... sheesh.

      It is produced by the same people who produce the UK version... So its more like People in Europe want to make an American Car Show...

      Furthermore, there is a ton of quality American produced automotive programing, especially on Velocity Channel. Chasing Classic Cars and Whats My Car Worth to name a few....

      Fanboys are the worst.....
