      Absolutely!

      Our 8 year old is pretty excited, so excited he's going back and watching the old ones I saved for him on the DVR!

      Watched the UK thing on History last week and hit the trip to Vegas show.......It was the same thing....pure comedy gold. then I watched

      The mini van episode was awesome. The trip from desert to Vegas was incredible. Keep up the work.

      My only caveat is that this show is soooo much more funny to me than than the other. Might be good or bad, less car content but the drama is great. This show is more "merican" more flash.

      Just take last season and take it up a notch and this would be best show on earth.



      Quick piece of mind..............I was originally not a fan of Adam, but props to everyone, I really think he has really pulled the show together. He plays the ignorant one sometimes, but his lines are great and he adds great contrast. Tanner is the expert and plays the job well. rut seems to be the the one that bridges the gap between the two.

      Rut, I know you may see this, but you are great cause you are the regular car guy. Lots of basic knowledge but not a racer like Tanner. The formula, again, is easliy, the comedy/fun guy/the expert, and the guy that can make sense of both and deliver to the camera.

      tons pf talent. Just do it.

      Thanks for all the kind words man. I really appreciate it. I think if we can aim to make each show better than the one before it, and I think we've done a good job with that, then we can keep making some really fun stuff.

      Seriously...thanks you guys. Tonight's show is pretty fun...we've got some really killer ones coming your way, so thanks again in advance for watching.

      My G/F is not feeling well today, watching TV while I work in the office. She called me to remind me your new episode is on tonight - and tell me she was watching some episodes from last season airing on The History Channel. Laughing at a few scenes in the Donald Trump episode cheered her up (though that gay joke directed at Tanner was out of nowhere! Or was that just bad editing??)

      So we'll be tuning in tonight for sure!

      Thanks for all the hard work!

      I just wish we could see Tanner driving fast instead of drifting. Wheelspin is great for the camera but slow overall.
